MATH Semineri: “Singular curves and their theta functions”, Türkü Özlüm Çelik, 15:40 24 Mart (EN)

You are cordially invited to the ODTU-Bilkent Algebraic Geometry Seminar

Speaker: Türkü Özlüm Çelik (Boğaziçi)
“Singular curves and their theta functions”

Abstract: Riemann’s theta function becomes polynomial when the underlying curve degenerates to a singular curve. We will give a classification of such curves accompanied by historical remarks on the topic. We will touch on relations of such theta functions with solutions of the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili hierarchy if time permits.
