Colloquium Series

Date:  Tuesday, January 31, 2017
Location:  1360 East Hall (4:10 PM to 5:00 PM)

Title:  Algebraic geometry, topology, strings and singularities

Abstract:   I will discuss a Brieskorn-Grothendieck program involving certain singularities and Lie algebras. These singularities arise in many different areas of mathematics and physics. I will focus on the case of complex algebraic threefolds relating to topology and physics.
The talk is based on joint projects with Halverson, Shaneson and Weigand.
