Riemann Surfaces Reading Seminar

Friday, January 20, 2023 1:30 pm - 1:30 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

This semester there will be a reading seminar on Riemann Surfaces. We'll be using Simon Donaldson's book as a reference. 

These seminars are pretty accessible as the only hard pre-requisite is some Complex Analysis. Donaldson's exposition is also especially good as he gives a lot of focus on intuition and examples.

The aim of the seminar is to go through the whole book. One chapter each week. Though, we will slow down if we need to. 

Each week a speaker (or speakers) will present a chapter of the book for one hour and the second hour of the seminar will be left for discussion and questions. For a total of 2 hours per seminar.

Currently, we meet every Friday at 1:30 in MC 5403, though that we may switch to another date/time if this turns out to be inconvenient for some people.
