Title: Enhanced Grothendieck's operations and base change theorem for
 
sheaves on Artin stacks
 
 
Abstract: Laszlo and Olsson have conditionally defined Grothendieck's six operations for
 
sheaves on Artin stacks, and proved the base change theorem on the cohomological level. I
 
will explain a new approach toward the theory of sheaves on Artin stacks in very general
 
set-ups. With this approach, the base change theorem follows in a natural way. Our method
 
relies on the theory of infinity categories developed by Lurie. This is a joint work with
 
Weizhe Zheng.

Cohomology of Hilbert schemes of singular curves

Abstract: For a smooth curve, the Hilbert schemes are just symmetric powers of the curve, and their cohomology is easily computed by the H^1 of the curve. This is known as Macdonald's formula. In joint work with Davesh Maulik, we generalize this formula to curves with planar singularities (which was conjectured by L.Migliorini). In the singular case, the compactified Jacobian will play an important role in the formula, and we make use of Ngo's technique in his celebrated proof of the fundamental lemma.
