MATH-311: Algebra IV - rings and modules

Ring and module theory with a major emphasis on commutative algebra and a minor emphasis on homological algebra.

MATH-215: Rings and fields

C'est un cours introductoire dans la théorie d'anneau et de corps.

MATH-662: Perfectoid spaces

The course is about defining perfectoid spaces, and possibly presenting some applications.

Moduli space

In mathematics, in particular algebraic geometry, a moduli space is a geometric space (usually a scheme or an algebraic stack) whose points represent algebro-geometric objects of some fixed kind, or isomorphism classes of such objects. Such spaces frequently arise as solutions to classification problems: If one can show that a collection of interesting objects (e.g., the smooth algebraic curves of a fixed genus) can be given the structure of a geometric space, then one can parametrize such objects by introducing coordinates on the resulting space.

Birational geometry

In mathematics, birational geometry is a field of algebraic geometry in which the goal is to determine when two algebraic varieties are isomorphic outside lower-dimensional subsets. This amounts to studying mappings that are given by rational functions rather than polynomials; the map may fail to be defined where the rational functions have poles. A rational map from one variety (understood to be irreducible) to another variety , written as a dashed arrow X Y, is defined as a morphism from a nonempty open subset to .

Characteristic (algebra)

In mathematics, the characteristic of a ring R, often denoted char(R), is defined to be the smallest number of times one must use the ring's multiplicative identity (1) in a sum to get the additive identity (0). If this sum never reaches the additive identity the ring is said to have characteristic zero. That is, char(R) is the smallest positive number n such that: if such a number n exists, and 0 otherwise.

We establish the Minimal Model Program for arithmetic threefolds whose residue characteristics are greater than five. In doing this, we generalize the theory of global F-regularity to mixed characteristic and identify certain stable sections of adjoint line bundles. Finally, by passing to graded rings, we generalize a special case of Fujita's conjecture to mixed characteristic.

We prove that smooth, projective, K-trivial, weakly ordinary varieties over a perfect field of characteristic p>0 are not geometrically uniruled. We also show a singular version of our theorem, which is sharp in multiple aspects. Our work, together with Langer’s results, implies that varieties of the above type have strongly semistable tangent bundles with respect to every polarization.

We use the theory of foliations to study the relative canonical divisor of a normalized inseparable base-change. Our main technical theorem states that it is linearly equivalent to a divisor with positive integer coefficients divisible by p - 1. We deduce many consequences about the fibrations of the minimal model program: for example the general fibers of terminal Mori fiber spaces of relative dimension 2 are normal in characteristic p >= 5 and smooth in characteristic p >= 11.
