Pathologies on the Hilbert scheme of points

14-May-2021, 19:00-20:00 (2 years ago)

Abstract: In the talk I will discuss recent advances in our understanding of singularities and components of the Hilbert scheme of points on a higher-dimensional smooth variety. The key underlying tool, interesting on its own, is the Bialynicki-Birula decomposition in the singular setting. I will mention some open questions.
