Algebraic Geometry Student's Seminar : Introduction to Descent Theory

Daniel Rostamloo, University of Washington
Wednesday, October 25, 2023 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
CMU B006

The word "descent" refers to a number of results which are an important part of the modern algebraic geometer's toolkit. We will develop the context for these results and prove one such descent theorem, as well as giving a broad overview of the utility of descent theory.
