Dr Christian Böhning
Teaching Responsibilities 2019/20:
Term 1: MA4A5 Algebraic Geometry
Term 2: The lectures in MA948 Applied Scheme Theory take place:
Tuesdays, 9-11, C1.06
Thursdays, 10-11, C1.06.
Further information on the contents can be found here . We will use the book Algebraic Geometry II by Mumford and Oda (Texts and Readings in Mathematics 73, Hindustan Book Agency 2015), an almost final version of which can be found online here . We will focus on the first three chapters and work through these, with added examples, pictures and applications, rather thoroughly.
Research Interests: Algebraic geometry, representation and invariant theory, derived category methods in birational geometry, birational automorphism groups
Lecture Notes: MA4A5 Algebraic Geometry (autumn term 2018)
Some parts of a (growing) book on the rationality problem in invariant theory
Workshop on Birational Geometry Feb 2016
