**Rational Curves on K3 Surfaces**

It is conjectured that there are infinitely many rational curves on every projective K3 surface. A large part of this conjecture was proved by Jun Li and Christian Liedtke, based on the characteristic p reduction method proposed by Bogomolov-Hassett-Tschinkel. They proved that there are infinitely many rational curves on every projective K3 surface of odd Picard rank. Over complex numbers, there are a few remaining cases: K3 surfaces of Picard rank two excluding elliptic K3's and K3's with infinite automorphism groups and K3 surfaces with two particular Picard lattices of rank four. We have settled these leftover cases and also generalized the conjecture to the existence of curves of high genus. This is a joint work with Frank Gounelas and Christian Liedtke.

### Janina Letz

**Local to global principles for generation time over commutative rings**

Abstract: In the derived category of modules over a commutative noetherian ring a complex $G$ is said to generate a complex $X$ if the latter can be obtained from the former by taking finitely many summands and cones. The number of cones needed in this process is the generation time of $X$. In this talk I will present some local to global type results for computing this invariant, and also discuss some applications of these results.
