<br />
This is a first course in algebraic geometry. While there are no formal prerequisites beyond a knowledge of the material covered in the first-year algebra and geometry sequence, familiarity with some basic commutative algebra will be helpful. The rough outline of the course is as follows (subject to change):<br />
<br />
* Affine and projective varieties.<br />
* Morphisms and rational maps.<br />
* Local properties: smoothness and dimension. Tangent space.<br />
* Divisors.<br />
* Low-dimensional varieties: curves and surfaces. Blow-ups.<br />
* The Riemann-Roch Theorem.<br />

== Abstracts ==<br />
<br />
===Yuki Matsubara===<br />
'''On the cohomology of the moduli space of parabolic connections'''<br />
<br />
We consider the moduli space of logarithmic connections of rank 2<br />
on the projective line minus 5 points with fixed spectral data.<br />
We compute the cohomology of such moduli space, <br />
and this computation will be used to extend the results of <br />
Geometric Langlands correspondence due to D. Arinkin <br />
to the case where the this type of connections have five simple poles on ${\mathbb P}^1$.<br />
<br />
In this talk, I will review the Geometric Langlands Correspondence <br />
in the tamely ramified cases, and after that, <br />
I will explain how the cohomology of above moduli space will be used.<br />
<br />
===Juliette Bruce===<br />
'''Semi-Ample Asymptotic Syzygies'''<br />
<br />
I will discuss the asymptotic non-vanishing of syzygies for products of projective spaces, generalizing the monomial methods of Ein-Erman-Lazarsfeld. This provides the first example of how the asymptotic syzygies of a smooth projective variety whose embedding line bundle grows in a semi-ample fashion behave in nuanced and previously unseen ways.<br />
<br />
<br />
===Michael Kemeny===<br />
'''The geometric syzygy conjecture'''<br />
<br />
A famous classical result of M. Green asserts that the ideal sheaf of a canonical curve is generated by quadrics of rank four. Extending this to higher relations, one arrives at the so-called <br />
Geometric Syzygy Conjecture, stating that extremal linear syzygies are spanned by those of the lowest possible rank. This conjecture further provides a geometric interpretation of Green's conjecture <br />
for canonical curves. In this talk, I will outline a proof of the Geometric Syzygy Conjecture in even genus, based on combining a construction of Ein-Lazarsfeld with Voisin's approach to the study of <br />
syzygies of K3 surfaces.<br />
<br />

== Course description ==<br />
<br />
This is a first course in algebraic geometry. While there are no formal prerequisites beyond a knowledge of the material covered in the first-year algebra and geometry sequence, familiarity with some basic commutative algebra will be helpful. The rough outline of the course is as follows (subject to change):<br />
<br />
* Affine and projective varieties.<br />
* Morphisms and rational maps.<br />
* Local properties: smoothness and dimension. Tangent space.<br />
* Divisors.<br />
* Low-dimensional varieties: curves and surfaces. Blow-ups.<br />
* The Riemann-Roch Theorem.<br />
<br />

'''On the cohomology of the moduli space of parabolic connections'''<br />
<br />
We consider the moduli space of logarithmic connections of rank 2<br />
on the projective line minus 5 points with fixed spectral data.<br />
We compute the cohomology of such moduli space, <br />
and this computation will be used to extend the results of <br />
Geometric Langlands correspondence due to D. Arinkin <br />
to the case where the this type of connections have five simple poles on ${\mathbb P}^1$.<br />

In the summers of 2008, 2009, 2010 Guillermo Mantilla ran a well-regarded summer enchancement program in algebra preparing for the qualifying examination. Guillermo wrote up a set of notes covering the material that appears on the qualifying exam. Links appear in the order presented in class, not the order of the respective problems on the exam.<br />

<br />
The Putnam Exam, offered by the Mathematical Association of America, is the premier American math competition for undergraduate students. It is given each year on the first Saturday in December. The exam consists of 12 problems, 6 in the 3 hour morning session and 6 in the 3 hour afternoon session. Each problem is worth 10 points, so the maximum score is 120. National winners usually get around 100 points. The median score is generally around 0-2 points. This is a difficult exam with many interesting and fun problems.<br />
<br />
[http://kskedlaya.org/putnam-archive/ Old exams and more information on the Putnam competition.]<br />
<br />
The UW is also participating in the Virginia Tech Regional Mathematics Contest. This is an individual competition with seven problems in 2.5 hours. Many schools use it as a kind of rehearsal for the Putnam. You can find more information [http://www.math.vt.edu/people/plinnell/Vtregional/ over here.]<br />
<br />
We hold our own UW Madison [[Undergraduate Math Competition]] in the spring; this year, it is on '''April 24th, 2018'''.<br />
<br />
==Spring 2017==<br />
<br />
The Putnam Club does not meet in the spring, but we had the fourth annual UW [[Undergraduate Math Competition]] on '''April 24th''', 2018, 5:30-8pm in VV B239.<br />
<br />
==Fall 2017==<br />
<br />
The Putnam Club will help you prepare for the exam by practicing on problems from previous years and other olympiad-style problems. The meeting time is 5pm on Wednesdays in VV B139.<br />

<br />
* ''When?'' '''Tuesday, April 24''', 2018, 5:30-8pm. <br />
* ''Where?'' '''VV B239'''<br />
* ''What?'' There will be seven problems from various areas of mathematics (such as algebra, number theory, calculus, combinatorics, and others). We would like it to be challenging, but probably easier than, say, the Virginia Tech competition, and much easier than the Putnam Exam. You can take a look at our [[Putnam Club|Putnam Club page]] to see what type of problems we have in mind.<br />

If you are interested in the competition, please fill this short '''[https://goo.gl/forms/MhWb0n20YnFKKpVi2 registration form]'''! It is not actually required (so do not worry if something goes wrong), but it lets us see how many people are interested.<br />
