MS Seminar (Mathematics - String Theory)

Speaker: Evgeny Shinder (MPIM)
Title: Mahler measures and pencils of Calabi-Yau varieties
Date: Tue, Feb 28, 2012, 13:15 - 14:45
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: I will talk about joint work in progress with M.Vlasenko on computing Mahler measures of some linear polynomials and about families of elliptic curves, K3 surfaces and Calabi-Yau threefolds which naturally appear in the computations.
