Lecture series on Hodge Theory

Wednesday and Thursday, 11.30 am


Venue: Ramanujan Hall

Host: Sudarshan Gurjar

Speaker: V. Srinivas, IIT Bombay

Title: Hodge Theory

Abstract:  These are part of an ongoing series of lectures on the basics of Hodge theory. The next two lectures will discuss the Kahler condition, and its consequences (Kahler identities etc.).

Title:  Results on equivariant cohomology of projective spaces.

Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss some basic notions in equivariant cohomology theory to finally present our work where we have calculated the equivariant additive homology decompositions of complex projective spaces. Following Lewis's approach for Burnside ring coefficients, we have been able to calculate the equivariant cohomology ring structure of projective spaces with integer coefficients. I will try to present these results and some of their applications.

Commutative Algebra seminar

Thursday, 5 Oct. 3.30-5.00 pm


Venue: Ramanujan Hall

Host: Tony Puthenpurakal

Speaker: Jugal Verma, IIT Bombay

Title: Local cohomology  and Hilbert functions-1

Abstract: In this series of four lectures, I will prove the Grothendieck-Serre (GS)  formula for the difference between the Hilbert function and the Hilbert polynomial of a graded module over a standard graded ring. I will also prove some of its variations for the Hilbert-Samuel polynomial using the local cohomology of Rees algebras. The first lecture will review the basic results of local cohomology modules needed for the later lectures. An important invariant of the Hilbert function is its postulation number. We will see that the Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity is an upper bound on the postulation number. In the later lectures, we shall show how the GS -formula yields unified proofs of many results due to Sally, Rossi-Valla, and Huneke-Ooishi, about Hilbert-Samuel polynomial of m-primary ideals in local rings.

Title: A basic introduction to Fourier restriction estimates
Abstract: This is the first of a series of weekly talks to be held on Thursday afternoon. We will discuss the basic tools that are used in Fourier restriction estimates, and the primary goal is to try to understand the proof of the current best bound (due to Larry Guth 2014, and Hong Wang, Shukun Wu, 2022) for the “simplest case” of the Fourier restriction conjecture associated with the two-dimensional paraboloid in $\R^3$.
