Elements of non-commutative algebraic geometry

Time:2023-10-16 ~ 2024-01-12 Mon,Wed,Fri 15:20-16:55

Venue:Venue: A3-2-301 Zoom: 388 528 9728 (PW: BIMSA)

Speaker:Slava Pimenov (Assistant Professor)


The classical theory of algebraic geometry connects geometric concepts with corresponding notions in commutative algebra. In the recent decades there was an interest in building a parallel theory based on associative (non-commutative) algebras. We will discuss the basic ideas of this developing theory mostly following Ginzburg's lectures as well as several more recent papers.

The class will consist of two parts:

1. The first 2/3 will be lectures read by me: Mon, Wed, Fri, Oct 16 - Nov 17, 15:20 - 16:55, room a3-2-301.

2. The last third of the class will be for students to give talks to each other on the related topics. For this part we will meet once a week on Fridays from Nov 24 until Jan 12, 15:20 - 16:55, room a3-2-301.

Lecturer Intro

I have MSc degree in Applied Math / Computer Science from St. Petersburg IFMO and PhD in pure mathematics from Yale University. From 2014 to 2022 I held postdoctoral and visiting researcher positions in Japan, UK, Germany and France. I've joined BIMSA in 2023.

My current research interests include geometric representation theory, super groups and non-commutative algebraic geometry.

      Methods of Algebraic Topology in Graph Theory

      IntroductionCurrently the problem of transferring results of algebraic topology to discrete objects and, in particular, to various categories of digraphs and graphs, is widely investigated. The main technical tools are given by the homotopy theory and various homology theories. We present the basic methods of algebraic topology in graph theory and describe relations between continious and discr...

      Combinatorial algebraic topology I

      IntroductionThis course will discuss topological modelling of combinatorial objects such as (di-)graphs and hypergraphs. The course will guide the students to read the relevant references on the topic for learning how to apply the theories in algebraic topology to the combinatorial objects. The course will also display some applications of algebraic topology in data analytics through topologica...
