# NT & AG Lunch: Yakov Varshavsky "Introduction to algebraic stacks"

1:00pm to 2:00pm

## Location:

Faculty lounge, Math building

Abstract: The goal of this talk will be to explain what are algebraic stacks and why they naturally appear.

If time permits, we will start discussing our main example of moduli spaces of vector bundles on a smooth projective curve.

Key words: groupoids, Grothendieck topologies, etale and smooth morphisms of schemes, algebraic stacks.
