Special Seminar: Singularities of polynomials in characteristic 0 and characteristic p

Special Events

Speaker: Dr. Karl Schwede, Pennsylvania State University
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Mon, Jan 27 2014, 4:10PM

I will discuss the singularities of the zero-locus of a polynomial equation. A particular focus will be payed to comparing different singularities. I will discuss two different approaches to this question: analytic (characteristic zero) and algebraic (positive characteristic).

A Department Tea will follow the Talk in the Alder Room.
