# Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar, Spring 2016

** Time/Place: ** Wednesday 4:30-5:30 PM in LCB 222

Please send notes, questions, and corrections to Thomas.

Try to make your talk as accessible as possible! When you introduce new concepts, try to answer:

- What is the point of this concept?
- How can I think about this concept in a way I can actually remember?

Intuitive ways of remembering concepts are more accessible than technical definitions. Feel free to consult with Thomas (or anyone else in the seminar) while preparing your talk.

Here are the topics we brainstormed at our organizational meeting: characteristic p, reflexive sheaves, moduli spaces, Hodge theory, abelian varieties, unramified cohomology, the Cone Theorem, and tropical geometry.
