SUMMARY:Math Seminar Series
DESCRIPTION:
Algebra\n
\n
Joshua Lam from Harvard will be speaking.\n
\n
The
seminar title is "Calabi-Yau threefolds
and torsion in cohomology."\n
\n
Contact
Laure Flapan (flapanla@msu.edu) for more information.\n
\n
I'll
discuss some explicit examples
of Calabi-Yau threefolds (CY3s) with torsion
in various cohomology groups and consequences
of such torsion; in particular, I'll present
computations using p-adic Hodge theory
which answer some outstanding questions about
CY3s over finite fields. I will not assume
familiarity with Calabi-Yau manifolds or p-adic
Hodge theory.\n\n
