Project title: Illustrative Proof of Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch Theorem for Algebraic Curves
I will be going over something I did for my Master’s project this past summer. Namely, the idea for the proof of the Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch Theorem for Algebraic Curves, which shows how the topological genus is equal to an algebraic invariant, called the arithmetic genus.
The talk will not be rigorous and should be accessible for new graduate students. Knowledge of undergraduate topology and algebra recommended.
