Title: The Cancellation Problem
Abstract: If two varieties become isomorphic after forming their product with some fixed third variety, then are the original two varieties isomorphic? In this talk I will say some of what is known about the "Cancellation Problem" for varieties, following the work of Hochster and Danielewski.
This talk will be accessible to anyone who has taken 631.
