Algebraic Geometry Seminar

Toward Git Stability of Syzygies of Canonical Curves

Speaker: Maksym Fedorchuk, Boston College

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 201

Date: Tuesday, March 4, 2014, 3:30 p.m.


I will discuss a GIT problem concerning stability of syzygy points of canonical curves, and explain its solution for the first syzygy point in the generic case (joint with Deopurkar and Swinarski). I will also explain connections with Green's conjecture and applications related to the minimal model program for the moduli space of curves.
