    Kazhdan seminar: Tomer Schlank "The Nonabelian Chabauty Method"

    12:00pm to 2:00pm

    Location: 

    Ross 70A
    Abstract: The Chabauty method is a remarkable tool which employs p-adic analitic methods (in particular Colman integration.) To study rational points on curves. However the method can be applied only when the genus of the curve in question is larger than its Mordell-Weil rank. Kim developed a sophisticated "nonableian" generalisation. We shall present the classical methid, and give an approachable introduction to Kim's method. I'm basically going to follow http://math.mit.edu/nt/old/stage_s18.html

    Kazhdan seminar: Karim Adiprasito "Positivity in combinatorics and beyond"

    3:00pm to 5:00pm

    Location: 

    Ross 70A
    Abstract: I will discuss applications of algebraic results to combinatorics, focusing in particular on Lefschetz theorem, Decomposition theorem and Hodge Riemann relations. Secondly, I will discuss proving these results combinatorially, using a technique by McMullen and extended by de Cataldo and Migliorini. Finally, I will discuss Lefschetz type theorems beyond positivity. Recommended prerequisites: basic commutative algebra
