Graduate Student Seminar

Title: A Brief Introduction to Birational Geometry and Moduli Spaces
Speaker: Alexander Jon Stathis
Speaker Info: UIC
Brief Description:
Special Note:

We'll begin by discussing the basics of birational geometry, intersection theory, and the relationship between the two. We'll also discuss moduli spaces and their geometric divisors rather informally, and then finish with the example of the Hilbert scheme of two points in the projective plane.
