Abstract: We continue our leisurely paced learning seminar on Eisenbud and Harris' notes. I will start by reminding the definition of Chern classes as degeneracy cycles and continue with  the calculation of the Chern classes of some interesting bundles. As an application I will talk about how these approaches are used to come up with the number 27, the number of  lines on a smooth cubic surface in P3. Time permitting, I will also attempt to explain solutions to some of the keynote questions posed at the beginning of chapter 8.

Time: 15.40
Place: Bilkent, Mathematics Seminar Room SA-141

 

 

 

Tea and cookies will be served before the talk.

You are most cordially invited.
