Title: A ruled residue theorem for function fields of elliptic curves
Abstract: Let E be a field and v be a valuation on E. The ruled residue theorem, proved by J. Ohm in 1983, characterizes residue field extensions for valuations on a rational function field E(X) in one variable. It states that for any extension of v from E to E(X), the corresponding field extension at the level of residue fields is either algebraic or ruled, i.e., it is a rational function field in one variable over a finite extension of the residue field of E. In this talk, we will discuss residue field extensions for valuation extensions of v to the function field F of an elliptic curve over E. In this case, we show that there exists at most one extension of v to F such that the corresponding residue field extension is neither algebraic nor ruled. We also describe the cases where such an extension occurs. This is joint work with K. J. Becher and S. Mishra.

Title: Derived Categories and derived functors: a first look2
Abstract: The category of abelian groups, and that of modules over a ring is part of common knowledge. These are examples of Abelian categories. More advanced examples include sheaves of abelian groups on a topological space, quasicoherent sheaves on a scheme, etc. Functors such as Hom, tensor product or global sections on these categories are not exact but have higher derived functors, such as Ext, Tor, and sheaf cohomology, which give long exact sequences that are basic tools in both theory and computations. A more evolved version of abelian categories and derived functors are the socalled `derived categories' made from them, which support a corresponding version of derived functors. These are indispensable in various topics in mathematics, such as duality theory, deformation theory, Dmodules, etc. At first sight, this subject appears to be forbiddingly technical. These two lectures are a `first look' at the subject. We will focus on conceptual points and simple examples so that the students can go on to read the more complete technical accounts in the literature with
greater ease.

Title: BoijSoderberg Theory over StandardGraded Rings
Abstract: The BoijSoderberg conjectures, which appeared in 2008, signified a paradigm shift in the study of Betti numbers of graded modules over polynomial rings. In this talk, we identify questions arising out of these conjectures, that are relevant over standard graded kalgebras, and some attempts to resolve them.
