Title: The failure of vanishing theorems in characteristic p
Speaker: Burt Totaro
Speaker Info: UCLA
Brief Description:
Special Note:

The Kodaira vanishing theorem is a central result of algebraic geometry that fails in characteristic p. We construct counterexamples even in "nice" situations such as Fano varieties or terminal singularities. It is an open question how far the minimal model program will work in characteristic p, despite these obstacles.
