Reading seminar in algebraic geometry.
Fall 2018. Non-commutative K3 surfaces.

This semester the reading seminar will study non-commutative K3 surfaces following the lecture notes by Macri and Stellari here.

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

The seminar will meet on Friday afternoons, 2:30--3:30PM, in LGRT 1334.
