SHORT TALKS BY POSTDOCTORAL MEMBERS | |

Topic: | On Desingularization of Schemes |

Speaker: | Michael Temkin |

Affiliation: | Member, School of Mathematics |

Date: | Friday, October 2 |

Time/Room: | 2:00pm - 3:00pm/S-101 |

In this short talk I will formulate a functorial desingularization theorem for qe schemes of characteristic zero and explain why this result implies desingularization in other categories including formal schemes and analytic spaces. If time permits I will also touch the case of positive or mixed characteristic, where our knowledge is still very incomplete.
