Symmetries in algebraic geometry and motives

16.05.2023, 15:00  –  Zoom meeting
Arbeitsgruppenseminar Analysis

Joseph Ayoub (University of Zurich)


Starting from the general notion of `symmetry' in mathematics, we give a gentle introduction to the theory of motives, which is the universal cohomology theory for algebraic varieties.

This talk is part of the colloquium "Mathematics in Lebanon and beyond," of the partnership between the University of Potsdam and two universities in Beirut, the Lebanese University (UL) and the American University of Beirut (AUB). The colloquium will serve as a meeting place for scientific exchange, bringing together mathematicians and physicists from the Lebanese diaspora, friends of Lebanon from around the world, and researchers based in Lebanon.
