Project title: Illustrative Proof of Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch Theorem for Algebraic Curves

*****

Abstract:

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.

MSc. students enrolling in MAT4000Y Master’s Supervised Research Project and students taking reading courses in the summer should fill out a Reading and/or Research Course enrolment form and return it to me no later than Monday, May 5th, 2014.

Additional copies of the form can be found  on the counter in the mailroom and online in the following link: http://www.sgs.utoronto.ca/Documents/Reading+Research+Course.pdf.

Please note that section 3 of the form should be completed by the course instructor.  Both student and instructor must sign the form.

MSc. students should provide a title for their project.

The completed form can be dropped in my office or in my mailbox.

Thanks.
