Join us for this research seminar, part of the Geometry, topology and mathematical physics seminar series.
Professor Len's talk will revolve around combinatorial aspects of Abelian varieties. He will focus on Pryms, a class of Abelian varieties that occurs in the presence of double covers, and have deep connections with torsion points of Jacobians, bi-tangent lines of curves, and spin structures. He will explain how problems concerning Pryms may be reduced, via tropical geometry, to problems on metric graphs. As a consequence, we obtain new results concerning the geometry of special algebraic curves, and bounds on dimensions of certain Brill--Noether loci. This is joint work with Martin Ulirsch.
