On Desingularization of Schemes

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.
