Last week, we saw the definition of a scheme. In this weeks talk, well present more examples of schemes and illustrate how, in some cases, schemes provide a better framework than varieties for studying certain geometric questions.

In this talk, we will present the results from the recent arXiv paper by A. Dubickas, K. G. Hare and J. Jankauskas on the solution of three and four term linear equations in the conjugates of a Pisot number.

In this second of several lectures, I will present a polynomial-time consistency checking algorithm for constraint networks over a finite template having a Taylor polymorphism. I conjecture that the algorithm is complete for Maltsev templates, and in future lectures will provide evidence supporting this conjecture.

We continue through Melnikov's survey paper on Computable

Abelian Groups. We use the effective analysis of linear independence

(discussed before by Sam) to characterize computable categoricity. We

go through the proof that "Every computable torsion-free

Ehsaan gave me a list of five or six things he wants me to talk about this Friday. The list includes: the definition of ringed spaces, locally ringed spaces, schemes; an example of a non-affine scheme, etc. I plan to talk about these things.

So far we have been streaming ahead, defining an affine scheme without a moment’s hesitation. It is time to take a moment to still our minds and reflect.
