With a view towards explicit constructions, we present some rudiments of the intersection between algebraic, differential and arithmetic geometry. Throughout we will take the opposite of the Bourbaki approach and work through explicit examples, rather than to emphasise on the theory.

Joining instructions: FW26 , Computer Lab, 15 JJ Thomson Avenue, Cambridge. Zoom: https://dtudk.zoom.us/j/63952790964

This talk is the first in the series: ‘A Hitchhiker’s guide to Complex Geometry’. Further details: https://complexgeometrytalks.github.io/

Bio: Professor Yang-Hui He is a Fellow of the London Institute, Professor of mathematics at City, University of London, Tutor in mathematics at Merton College, Oxford, and Chang-Jiang Chair of physics at Nankai University in China. He obtained his BA at Princeton (summa cum laude, Shenstone Prize and Kusaka Prize), MA at Cambridge (Distinction, Tripos), and PhD at MIT . After a postdoc at the University of Pennsylvania, he joined Oxford as the Fitzjames Fellow and an STFC Advanced Fellow. He works at the interface of string theory, algebraic and combinatorial geometry, and machine learning.

Outside of research, Yang plays the violin (Princeton orchestra; founding member of the Saville Consort) and is a tenor who sang for the chapel choirs of St. Catherine’s, Cambridge and Merton, Oxford.
