Wednesdays 4pm, Room - Van Vleck B219

The purpose of this seminar is to have a talk on each week by a graduate student to help orient ourselves for the Algebraic Geometry Seminar talk on the following Friday. These talks should be aimed at beginning graduate students, and could try to explain some of the background, terminology, and ideas for the grown-up AG talk that week, or can be about whatever you have been thinking about recently.

If you want to get emails regarding time, place, and talk topics (which are often assigned quite last minute) add yourself to the gags mailing list: gags@lists.math.wisc.edu

The list registration page is here: https://lists.math.wisc.edu/listinfo/gags

Give a talk!

We need volunteers to give talks this semester. If you're interested contact Nathan, or just add yourself to the list (though in that case we might move your talk later without your permission). Beginning graduate students are particularly encouraged to give a talk, since it's a great way to get your feet wet with the material.

Nathan Clement
Title: Grothendieck's Theorem on Vector Bundles on P^1

Abstract: I will begin by briefly discussing line bundles and vector bundles, primarily in the context of smooth curves. I will introduce Serre Duality and Riemann-Roch in this context. My target application is to give a proof of Grothendieck's Theorem on the decomposition of vector bundles on P^1. I intend this talk to be accessible to anyone who has taken one semester of Algebraic Geometry!

Marci Hablicsek
Title: Non-commutative resolutions and McKay-correspondence.

Abstract: Classical method for resolving singularities is to somehow associate an ideal to the singular space. Non-commutative resolutions associate instead a non-commutative algebra to the space. In the talk, through explicit examples, I'll illustrate how to get quivers from singular spaces and how to find resolutions through the quivers.
