Geometry of Obstructed Families of Plane Algebraic Curves and Projective Hypersurfaces

SHORT TALKS BY POSTDOCTORAL MEMBERS
Topic:Geometry of Obstructed Families of Plane Algebraic Curves and Projective Hypersurfaces
Speaker:Anna Gourevich
Affiliation:Member, School of Mathematics
Date:Thursday, September 24
Time/Room:4:00pm - 5:00pm/S-101

I will talk about families of plane curves, and more generally projective hypersurfaces, of given degree having one isolated singularity of prescribed analytic type. We will see an example of such family and discuss its geometry.
