Wednesday, May 31 11:30 a.m. Jeffery 422 - Number Theory Seminar

Speaker: Hector Pasten

Title: Shimura curves and an abc bound

Abstract: I will sketch a proof of an upper bound for the number of divisors of abc which is polynomial on rad(abc), for all triples of coprime positive integers a,b,c with a+b=c. This proves a partial result for the abc conjecture.


Thursday, June 1, 1:30 p.m. Jeffery 422 - Curves Seminar

Speaker: Mike Roth

Title: Examples II

Abstract: We will look at parameter spaces of points in P^n up to projective automorphisms.
