401-4142-17LAlgebraic Curves6 credits3GR. Pandharipande
AbstractI will discuss the classical theory of algebraic curves. The topics will include:
divisors, Riemann-Roch, linear systems, differentials, Clifford's theorem,
curves on surfaces, singularities, curves in projective space, elliptic curves,
hyperelliptic curves, families of curves, moduli, and enumerative geometry.
There will be many examples and calculations.
ContentLecture homepage:
LiteratureForster, "Lectures on Riemann Surfaces"

Arbarello, Cornalba, Griffiths, Harris, "Geometry of Algebraic Curves"

Mumford, "Curves and their Jacobians"
Prerequisites / NoticeFor background, a semester course in algebraic geometry should be
sufficient (perhaps even if taken concurrently). You should know the definitions
of algebraic varieties and algebraic morphisms and their basic properties.
401-5000-00LZurich Colloquium in Mathematics Information 0 creditsP. L. Bühlmann, M. Burger, S. Mishra, R. Pandharipande, University lecturers
AbstractThe lectures try to give an overview of "what is going on" in important areas of contemporary mathematics, to a wider non-specialised audience of mathematicians.
