"A result on constraint satisfaction problems: part 3"

In this talk, I will begin going through Bulatov's proof that a nonempty standard $(2,3)$-system with potatoes from a variety of $2$-semilattices has a solution. It should take two lectures to complete the proof.

"Hilbert Scheme of Points on Surfaces"

Finally, we are in place to discuss the Hilbert scheme of points in a surface. We will discuss some geometric properties of this Hilbert scheme. In particular, we will attempt to explain why the Hilbert scheme of points in the affine plane is smooth and irreducible scheme. We may also give a description of this Hilbert scheme in a way suggestive for future discussions.

"Morita Theory IV: The Morita Context"

If $F:\mathrm{Mod}_R \rightarrow \mathrm{Mod}_S$ is a Morita equivalence, then it preserves progenerators, so $P_S:= F(R_R)$ is a progenerator in $\mathrm{Mod}_S$. We'll see that that $P_S$ has a left $R$-module structure and $F\simeq -\otimes _RP_S$, thus giving rise to a \textit{Morita context} between $R$ and $S$. Conversely, the existence of a Morita context implies that $R$ and $S$ are Morita equivalent.
