Title: | A walk through Algebraic Curves |

Speaker: | Chris Creighton, '11 Graduate Student Department of Mathematics Purdue University 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. |
