Title:  "Richard and Me": an algebraic geometer pursuing Feynman graphs and amplitudes

Abstract:  An algebraic geometer tries to understand some of the basic ideas of Feynman in perturbative quantum field theory. Periods associated to Feynman graphs, multiple zeta values, Hodge theory and renormalization, Landau poles and families of Feynman amplitudes parametrized by momenta and masses. The talk will be expository in nature.
