  •  An introduction to intersection forms: Taking K3 surface as an example
  •  10/14/2019
  •  3:00 PM - 3:50 PM
  •  C304 Wells Hall

I’ll define intersection product both on 4 manifolds and in the algebraic geometry setting, then introduce the blow up technique and give some easy examples. After that I will jump to K3 surface, give definition and constructions, and talk a little bit about the elliptic fibrations of K3. If I still have time, I will talk about the relation between intersection form and characteristic classes.
