Special Seminar

Title: Lecture series: Rigidity of hypersurfaces I
Speaker: János Kollár
Speaker Info: Princeton
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Fano claimed around 1910 that a smooth, degree 4 hypersurface in P^4 is not birational to any other Fano variety. This was finally proved by Iskovskikh-Manin and extended to higher dimensions by many others. Recently these proofs have been simplified substantially. In lecture 1 I will give a general overview of the problem and an outline of the proof. The details will then be provided in subsequent lectures.
