ourier-Mukai theory for stacky genus 1 curves\nby Libby Taylor (Stanfo
rd University) as part of American Graduate Student Algebraic Geometry Sem
inar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe will discuss a theory of derived equivalences for c
ertain Artin stacks. We will apply this theory to study the derived categ
ories of genus 1 curves and of their Picard stacks. Some questions we wil
l answer: when are two $\\mathbb{G}_m$ gerbes over genus 1 curves derived
equivalent? If $C$ and $C'$ are derived equivalent curves\, can we prove
that $C'$ is the moduli space of certain vector bundles on $C$? If $C'=Pi
c^d(C)$\, is it true that $C=Pic^f(C')$ for some $f$\, and if so\, can we
use Fourier-Mukai theory to find $f$? (Spoilers: when one is $Pic^d$ of th
e other\; yes\; yes and yes.) This is joint work with Soumya Sankar.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A
generic talk on irrationality\nby Nathan Chen (Stony Brook University
) as part of American Graduate Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbs
tract\nGiven a smooth projective variety\, there are two natural questions
that can be asked: (1) How can we determine when it is rational? and (2)
If it is not rational\, can we measure how far it is from being rational?
There has been a great deal of recent progress towards developing invarian
ts with the second question in mind. We will explain some new techniques i
nvolved in bounding these invariants for certain classes of varieties.\n

ott vanishing using GIT and quantization\nby Sebastián Torres (UMass

\n\nAbstract\nA smooth projective variety is said to satisfy Bott vanishin
g if $\\Omega^j\\otimes L$ has no higher cohomology for every $j$ and ever
y ample line bundle $L$. This is a very restrictive property\, and there a
re few non-toric examples known to satisfy it. I will present a new class
of examples obtained as smooth GIT quotients of $(\\mathbb{P}^{1})^n$. For
this\, I will need to use the work by Teleman and Halpern-Leistner about
the derived category of a GIT quotient\, and explain how this allows us\,
in some cases\, to compute cohomologies directly in an ambient quotient st

opology of tropical moduli spaces of weighted stable curves in higher genu
s\nby Shiyue Li (Brown University) as part of American Graduate Studen
t Algebraic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nTropical moduli spaces of weig
hted stable curves are moduli spaces of metric weighted marked graphs sati
sfying certain stability conditions. The space of tropical weighted curves
of genus g and volume 1 is the dual complex of the divisor of singular cu
rves in Hassett's moduli space of weighted stable genus g curves. One can
derive plenty of topological properties of the Hassett spaces by studying
the topology of these dual complexes. In this talk (and in a paper coming
soon)\, we show that the spaces of tropical weighted curves of genus g and
volume 1 are simply-connected for all genus greater than zero and all rat
ional weights\, under the framework of symmetric Delta-complexes and via a
result by Allcock-Corey-Payne 19. We also calculate the Euler characteris
tics of these spaces and the top weight Euler characteristics of the class
ical Hassett spaces in terms of the combinatorics of the weights.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: H
yperplane sections and Moduli\nby Lisa Marquand (Stony Brook Universit
y) as part of American Graduate Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAb
stract\nOne way to produce new varieties from a fixed subvariety of projec
tive space is to intersect with linear subspaces. When we consider a cubic
threefold $X$ in $\\mathbb{P}^4$\, we can consider hyperplane sections: t
o every hyperplane (considered as a point in the dual projective space) we
can associate a cubic surface namely the intersection $X \\cap H$. One na
tural question is to ask\, given a cubic surface $Y$\, how many times does
it appear as a hyperplane section of $X$ (up to projective equivalence)?
More rigorously\, we can define a rational map which takes a hyperplane $H
$ to the class of the intersection\, considered as a point in the moduli s
pace of cubic surfaces (GIT). One can check that this is a generically fin
ite surjective map\, and thus answering our question is equivalent to calc
ulating the degree of this map. Although the question is enumerative\, the
techniques involved are particularly interesting: the wonderful blow-up t
echnique of De Concini-Procesi\, plus the dual perspective of the moduli o
f cubic surfaces. This is a work in progress\, and we will actually consid
er a slight modification resulting in easier computations.\n

rbifold Gromov–Witten theory of complete intersections\nby Nawaz Sul
tani (University of Michigan) as part of American Graduate Student Algebra
ic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nFor genus 0 GW invariants of schemes\,
one can compute the GW theory of a complete intersection in projective spa
ce in terms of the GW theory of the ambient space through the so-called Qu
antum Lefschetz theorem (QL). However\, this theorem doesn't necessarily h
old when one considers stacky targets\, which makes such examples much mor
e difficult to understand.\n\nIn this talk\, I will discuss the failure of
QL in the orbifold case\, and present techniques that allow us to compute
the $g=0$ GW invariants in these cases when the target is a complete inte
rsection in a stacky GIT quotient. The work presented is joint with Felix

Cox rings\, linear blow-ups and the generalized Nagata action\nby Lei
Yang (Northeastern University) as part of American Graduate Student Algebr
aic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nNagata gave the first counterexample t
o Hilbert's 14th problem on the finite generation of invariant rings by ac
tions of linear algebraic groups. His idea was to relate the ring of invar
iants to a Cox ring of a projective variety. Counterexamples of Nagata's t
ype include the cases where the group is $G_a^m$ for $m=3\, 6\, 9$ or $13$
. However\, for $m=2$\, the ring of invariants under the Nagata action is
finitely generated. It is still an open problem whether counterexamples ex
ist for $m=2$. \n\nIn this talk we consider a generalized version of Nagat
a's action by H. Naito. Mukai envisioned that the ring of invariants in th
is case can still be related to a cox ring of certain linear blow-ups of $
P^n$. We show that when $m=2$\, the Cox rings of this type of linear blow-
ups are still finitely generated\, and we can describe their generators. T
his answers the question by Mukai.\n

Quantum K-theory of Incidence Varieties\nby Weihong Xu (Rutgers Univer
sity) as part of American Graduate Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar\n\n\
nAbstract\nCertain rational enumerative geometry problems can be formulate
d as intersection theory in the moduli space of stable maps M̅_{0\,m}(X\,
d). This moduli space is well-behaved when $X$ is a projective homogeneous
variety $G/P$. Non-trivial relations among solutions to these enumerative
geometry problems (Gromov-Witten invariants) enable the definition of an
associative product and in turn a formal deformation of the cohomology rin
g called the quantum cohomology ring of $X$. Similarly\, a deformation of
the Grothendieck ring $K(X)$ called the quantum K-theory ring of $X$ is de
fined using sheaf-theoretic versions of Gromov-Witten invariants.\n\nAfter
introducing relevant background\, we will focus on the quantum K-theory o
f the projective homogeneous variety $Fl(1\,n-1\;n)$ (also called an incid
ence variety)\, where I have found explicit multiplication formulae and co
mputed some sheaf-theoretic Gromov-Witten invariants. These computations l
ead to suspected rationality properties of some natural subvarieties of M
̅_{0\,m}(X\,d).\n

Cubic Threefolds and Vanishing Cycles on its Hyperplane sections\nby Y
ilong Zhang (Ohio State University) as part of American Graduate Student A
lgebraic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nFor a general cubic threefold\, a
vanishing cycle on a smooth hyperplane section is an integral 2-class per
pendicular to the hyperplane class with self-intersection equal to -2. The
question is what is a vanishing cycle on a singular hyperplane section? W
e will show that there is a certain moduli space parameterizing "vanishing
cycles" on all hyperplane sections and the boundary divisor answers the q
uestion. As a vanishing cycle on a smooth cubic surface is represented by
the difference of two skew lines\, such moduli space arises as a quotient
of the Hilbert scheme of skew lines on the cubic threefold. Based on the A
bel-Jacobi map on cubic threefolds studied by Clemens and Griffiths\, we'l
l show that the moduli space is isomorphic to the blowup of the theta divi
sor of the at an isolated singularity.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title:
Intersection theory on moduli of hyperplane arrangements and marked del Pe
zzo surfaces\nby Nolan Schock (University of Georgia) as part of Ameri
can Graduate Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThis talk i
s about the intersection theory of two of the first examples of compact mo
duli spaces of higher-dimensional varieties: the log canonical compactific
ation of the moduli space of marked del Pezzo surfaces\, and the stable pa
ir compactification of the moduli space of hyperplane arrangements. The la
tter space is the natural higher-dimensional version of $\\overline{M}_{0\
,n}$\, the moduli space of n-pointed rational curves\, but its geometry ca
n in general be arbitrarily complicated. On the other hand\, the former sp
ace\, which can also be viewed as a higher-dimensional generalization of $
\\overline{M}_{0\,n}$\, by construction has nice geometry on the boundary\
, and this leads (conjecturally for degree 1\,2) to a presentation of its
Chow ring entirely analogous to Keel's famous presentation of the Chow rin
g of $\\overline{M}_{0\,n}$. I will describe work in progress using the re
lationships between these moduli spaces in order to describe the intersect
ion theory of the moduli space of stable hyperplane arrangements.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title:
Uhlenbeck compactification as a Bridgeland moduli space\nby Tuomas Taj
akka (University of Washington) as part of American Graduate Student Algeb
raic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn recent years\, Bridgeland stabilit
y conditions have become a central tool in the study of moduli of sheaves
and their birational geometry. However\, moduli spaces of Bridgeland semis
table objects are known to be projective only in a limited number of cases
. After reviewing the classical moduli theory of sheaves on curves and sur
faces\, I will present a new projectivity result for a Bridgeland moduli s
pace on an arbitrary smooth projective surface\, as well as discuss how to
interpret the Uhlenbeck compactification of the moduli of slope stable ve
ctor bundles as a Bridgeland moduli space. The proof is based on studying
a determinantal line bundle constructed by Bayer and Macrì. Time permitti
ng\, I will mention some ongoing work on PT-stability on a 3-fold.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title:
On the interaction of normal square-tiled surfaces and group theory\nb
y Andrea Thevis (Aachen University) as part of American Graduate Student A
lgebraic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nA translation surface is obtained
by taking finitely many polygons in the Euclidean plane and gluing them a
long their edges by translations. If we restrict to gluing unit squares\,
we obtain a square-tiled surface\, also known as origami. In the first par
t of the talk\, I explain some motivations for studying translation surfac
es. I especially aim to point out why it is natural to study square-tiled
surfaces in some of these contexts. In the second part of the talk\, we co
nsider certain square-tiled surfaces with maximal symmetry group in more d
etail. More precisely\, we examine their types of singularities and their
Veech groups using group theoretic methods. This is partially joint work w
ith Johannes Flake.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title:
On K3 surfaces admitting symplectic automorphism of order 3\nby Yuliet
h K. Prieto (Università di Bologna) as part of American Graduate Student
Algebraic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe theory of K3 surfaces with s
ymplectic involutions and their quotients is now a well-understood classic
al subject thanks to foundational works of Nikulin\, Morrison\, and van Ge
emen and Sarti. In this talk\, we will try to develop analogous results fo
r K3 surfaces with symplectic automorphisms of order three: we will explic
itly describe the induced action of these automorphisms on the K3-lattic
e\, which is isometric to the second cohomology group of a K3 surface\; we
deduce the relation between the families that admitting these automorphis
ms and the ones given by their quotients. If time permits\, we give some a
pplications: one related to Shioda-Inose structures\, and another one in t
he construction of infinite towers of isogeneous K3 surfaces. This is join
t work with Alice Garbagnati.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title:
Bertini's theorem in positive characteristic\nby Cesar Hilario (IMPA)
as part of American Graduate Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar\n\n\nAbstr
act\nThe Bertini-Sard theorem is a classical result in algebraic geometry.
It states that in characteristic zero almost all the fibers of a dominant
morphism between two smooth algebraic varieties are smooth\; in other wor
ds\, there do not exist fibrations by singular varieties with smooth total
space. Unfortunately\, the Bertini-Sard theorem fails in positive charact
eristic\, as was first observed by Zariski in the 1940s. Investigating thi
s failure naturally leads to the classification of its exceptions. By a th
eorem of Tate\, a fibration by singular curves of arithmetic genus g in ch
aracteristic p > 0 may exist only if p <= 2g + 1. When g = 1 and g = 2\, t
hese fibrations have been studied by Queen\, Borges Neto\, Stohr and Simar
ra Canate. A birational classification of the case g = 3 was started by St
ohr (p = 7\, 5)\, and then continued by Salomao (p = 3). In this talk I wi
ll report on some progress in the case g = 3\, p = 2. In fact\, a great va
riety of examples exist and very interesting geometric phenomena arise fro
m them.\n
