Salle de conférences IRMA

The first session will take place on Tuesday June 25 at the University of Strasbourg.

The Upper-Rhine and Tributaries Algebraic Geometry Seminar is a regular seminar, jointly organised by the algebraic geometry groups at the universities of Basel, Freiburg, Lorraine, Luxembourg, Saarbrücken, Strasbourg, Stuttgart, and Tübingen.

These are all situated along the Upper Rhine and some of its tributaries, such as the Moselle, the Meurthe, and the Neckar.

It will alternate between being taking place in the central location of Strasbourg and one of the other organising universities.

Speakers :

  • Pieter Belmans
  • Ya Deng
  • Davide Cesare Veniani

Venue : Salle de Conférences de l'IRMA

    A panorama of quiver moduli

    In this talk I will survey recent progress on the geometry of quiver moduli. These moduli spaces of (semi)stable quiver representations have many similarities with moduli spaces of vector bundles on curves, provided that you approach them from the right perspective. I will illustrate this dictionary between quivers and curves, in order to motivate how these two types of moduli spaces behave similarly from the point of view of symmetries, deformation theory, derived categories, stacky constructions, Brauer groups, rationality questions, etc. These similarities take on the form of analogies in the results, but also in the ingredients of the proofs.

    On the universal covering of algebraic varieties

    In his famous book Basic Algebraic Geometry, Shafarevich asked whether the universal covering of a complex projective variety is homomorphically convex (the so-called Shafarevich conjecture). Substantial progress on this conjecture was achieved by Campana, Kollar, Napier, Katzarkov, Ramachandran, Eyssidieux etc in the 1990s. In 2012 Eyssidieux et al. proved the Shafarevich conjecture for smooth projective varieties whose fundamental groups are complex linear. In this talk, I will report some recent progress on the extension of this conjecture to cases where the variety is singular or the fundamental groups are subgroups of general linear groups in positive characteristic. If time permits, I will explain some applications in algebraic geometry. This is based on joint work with Yamanoi and Katzarkov.

    Non-degeneracy of Enriques surfaces

    Enriques’ original construction of Enriques surfaces dates back to 1896. It involves a 10-dimensional family of sextic surfaces in the projective space which are non-normal along the edges of a tetrahedron. An even earlier construction of Enriques surfaces is due to Reye and is known as Reye congruences. In a series of joint works with G. Martin and G. Mezzedimi, we have now settled two questions: (1) Do all Enriques surfaces arise through Enriques’ construction? (2) Do all nodal Enriques surface arise as Reye congruences? In my talk, I will illustrate our results and review the main ideas involved in their proofs, with a particular emphasis on the concept of non-degeneracy.
