Reading Seminar in Algebraic Geometry
Fall 2015
Logistics : Thursday 1618 pm, IMI, room 503
Dec 10 Versality and Universality. The KodairaSpencer map
Dec 3 Families and deformations
Nov 19 Complex spaces 2; Families and deformations: complete, versal, universal.
Nov 12 Complex spaces, families and deformations of complex manifolds
Nov 5 Introductory remarks and motivation
In a short series of talks I will present a brief, subjectively skewed introduction to deformation theory,
with the attempt to outline the passage from (pre)historic to (pre)modern methods. The
plan is to discuss briefly the following topics:
· Kodaira–Spencer theory
· Grothendieck–Schlessinger approach to deformations
· Deformation theory via DGLA
· The BTT theorem
· Some aspects of dGBVA, dervied deformation theory and EDF (optional)
We run this seminar together with Hristo Iliev
