Algebraic Geometry Seminar

The algebraic geometry seminar in Term 1 2023/2024 will usually meet on Wednesdays at 3pm in B3.02, though we may sometimes change to allow speakers from other time zones.

See the talks from last term here.

Wednesday 4 October 2023, 3pm. Speaker: Charles Favre (École Polytechnique)

Title: b-divisors and dynamical applications
