Title: A walk through Algebraic Curves
Speaker:Chris Creighton, '11
Graduate Student
Department of Mathematics

West Lafayette, Indiana
Abstract: The aim of this talk is to give an introduction to Algebraic Curves, that is, the zero set of some polynomial equation in two variables. We'll mosey through varieties in general and stroll through why the coefficients of the polynomial matter. The path of choice is concepts of nonsingularity and rational functions on the curve. If time, we can go onto the side path of divisors and related topics.
