|Affiliation:||New York University|
|Date:||Wednesday, February 12|
|Time/Room:||4:30pm - 5:30pm/Fine 314, Princeton University|
Anabelian geometry techniques allow the construction of explicit universal spaces which capture birational properties of algebraic varieties. I will describe this theory and its applications (joint with F. Bogomolov).
