Reading seminar in algebraic geometry: Holomorphic symplectic varieties and hyperkahler manifolds
Fall 2014.

This semester the reading seminar will study holomorphic symplectic varieites and hyperkahler manifolds.

The seminar will consist of introductory talks by faculty followed by talks by graduate students. We will attempt to make the seminar accessible to everyone.

The seminar will meet on Mondays, 3:00PM-4:00PM in LGRT 1322.
