SUMMARY:Math Seminar Series
DESCRIPTION:
Student Algebra & Combinatorics\n
\n
Nick Rekuski
from MSU will be speaking.\n
\n
The seminar is
titled "Simply Connectedness in Algebraic Geometry."\n
\n
This
meeting will take place online.\n
\n
The
event description is as follows:\n
\n
A
path connected topological space is simply
connected if the space of based paths is path
connected. Equivalently, the fundamental
group is zero or any connected covering space
is trivial. However, these notions do not capture
the correct notion in the world of algebraic
geometry. For example, if X is a Riemann
surface then the Zariski topology (the usual
topology in algebraic geometry) on X is equivalent
to the cofinite topology, so X is simply
connected. In this talk, we will introduce
a few definitions of simply connectedness in
algebraic geometry - each corresponding to
one of the equivalent definitions above. We will
then compare these definitions and discuss
how their consequences differ from their topological
counterparts.\n\n
