Math 6150, Complex Geometry, Spring 2004
Instructor: Y.-P. Lee, JWB 305
Office Hours: WF 12:40-13:30.
Course Website: http://www.math.utah.edu/~yplee/teaching/6150/
Lecture Time: MWF 11:50-12:40 and Tu 12:55-13:45.
Room: LCB 323
Text: Griffiths and Harris: Principles of Algebraic Geometry.
The main theme of this course is Complex Geometry, roughly what is
in (the selected sections from) Chapters 0-2 of Griffiths-Harris' book.
Emphasis will be placed on explicit examples: Grassmannians, Riemann
surfaces (i.e. algebraic curves).
The pace will be brisk and students are expected to work outside the lecture
Many long proofs will be left either to the Presentation session
(see below) or to home study.
Note: This will be the first course in a 3-semester series of
Introduction to Algebraic Geometry.
Homework and Presentation:
The participants are encouraged to give presentations on some proofs skipped
in the lectures and to turn in random HW problems assigned during the lectures.
(Homework and presentation are not required.)
Exams: No exam.
Grading Policy: In accordance with the the departmental tradition --
Did I say A?
- (13 April) Next semester there will be a class on Algebraic Geometry. See the
for more details.
- (13 April) The last 5 lectures will cover Curves and Their
Jacobians, with emphasis on the moduli theory of curves.
A good reference is the appendix in David Mumford's ``The Red Book''.
(Thanks to those who responded!)
- (19 March) The last lecture
will be held on 21 April.
(We will have accumulated 8 extra hours by then.)
- (19 March) No lectures on 12 and 13 April.
- (17 Feb) The classes on Fridays, 20 & 27 Feb, are cancelled.
- (21 Jan) The class will usually meet on MWF 11:50-12:40 and Tu 12:55-13:45,
all in LCB 323. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
- The first class will meet on Jan 21,
11:50 in LCB 323.
The class will usually meet 4 hours a week.
There are some conflicts with other classes, so it is likely that we will
move the class time. This will be discussed in the first meeting.
So if you are interested, be sure to attend the first class. If you can
not show up, please email me (yplee) your schedule before Jan 19.
- Those who are interested in taking this class are encouraged to talk with
me before the winter break. It will also be helpful to read the
Chapters 0-1 of Griffiths-Harris before Jan 19.
