In the Fall semester of 2020 Dr. Simon Häberli is giving an online course on Algebraic Groups.
Please head over to the course page for more details.
Starting May 4th, 2020, we will begin our new topic, Abelian varieties. We are going to follow three sources. These are:
Here is the syllabus of our reading course.
The prerequisites are basic knowledge of algebraic geometry, say chapters 2 and 3 of R. Hartshorne’s Algebraic Geometry book, and basic knowledge of group schemes, say W. Waterhouse’s Affine Group Schemes book (that we just finished in this class).
Because of the Covid-19 situation, our class will be held online. If you would like to actively participate in the class, please send me an email and I will add you to our online meeting group. The class takes place on Monday at 4 pm.
