MS Seminar (Mathematics - String Theory)

Speaker: Charles Siegel (Kavli IPMU)
Title: The Schottky problem in genus 5
Date: Tue, Aug 28, 2012, 13:30 - 15:00
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: The Schottky problem is to determine which period matrices arise from integration on Riemann surfaces, that is, what is the image of the period map. In this talk, I will describe work on the conjectures of Schottky and Jung in low genus, including my work on genus 5.
