Wednesdays 1:30-2:30 pm, Room - TBA

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.

Give a talk!

We need volunteers to give talks this semester. If you're interested contact Nathan. Beginning graduate students are particularly encouraged to give a talk, since it's a great way to get your feet wet with the material.

Title: We Don't Need No Stinking Scheme

Abstract: Following Mumford, we'll compute the Picard group of the (non-existent) moduli space of elliptic curves.

Jeff Poskin
Title: Constructing proper but non-projective varieties.

Abstract: It is known that, above dimension 1, there exist proper varieties that are not projective. Using the methods associated with the study of toric varieties, we give several examples and show why they must not be projective.
