Linear series on algebraic curves over fields of positive characteristic

Student-Run Applied & Math Seminar

Speaker: John Challenor
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Tue, May 16 2017, 12:05PM

This talk will introduce the theory of linear series on nonsingular projective curves over an algebraically closed field, with emphasis on the phenomena--wild ramification and inseparability--which arise when the field has positive characteristic.
