Title:  Separated Morphisms and Proper Morphisms.

Abstract: Separated morphisms and proper morphisms are two very important classes of morphisms in algebraic geometry. In the next few lectures, we will study these for schemes, algebraic spaces, and algebraic stacks. The basic theory of such morphisms between schemes is given in Hartshorne's `Algebraic Geometry', Chapter 2, Section 4. After recalling the basics, we will go on to consider such morphisms between algebraic spaces and then between algebraic stacks. The first few lectures should be easily accessible to beginner students in algebraic geometry.

Title: Modules over Weyl algebras with application to local cohomology modules over polynomial rings-2

Abstract. Let K be a field of characteristic zero. We study finitely generated modules over the Weyl algebra A_n(K). We give application to local cohomology modules of K[X_1,...., X_n]

Title: Finite morphisms and normal varieties

Abstract: We introduce the notion of normal varieties and prove the following version of Zariski's main theorem: A bijective and birational morphism of irreducible varieties, \phi: X  Y, is an isomorphism if Y is normal.

Title: An Improved Bound for the Additive Energy of Large Sets of Prime Numbers

Abstract: When A and B are subsets the integers, the additive energy of A and B is the quantity E(A,B) defined by  E(A,B) = | { (x_1,x_2,y_1, y_2) \in A\times A \times B \times B\, | x_1 +y_1 = x_2 +y_2 } | Additive energy is a basic notion in additive number theory and additive combinatorics. Given $\alpha$ in $(0,1)$ and $\lambda >0$ and a large enough integer $N$, we obtain an essentially optimal upper bound for the additive energy $E(A,B)$ of any subsets $A$ and $B$ of the prime numbers in the intervals $[1, N]$ and $[1, \lambda N]$ respectively, when $A$ satisfies $|A| \geq \alpha N$. This is based on work with K. Mallesham and Gyan Prakash.
