Title:Interpolation problems in algebraic geometry
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Jack Huizenga (Host: Yuxi Zheng), University of Illinois at Chicago
Classical Lagrangian interpolation states that one can always prescribe n+1 values of a single variable polynomial of degree n. This result paves the way for many beautiful generalizations in algebraic geometry. I will discuss a few of these generalizations and their relevance to important questions in mathematics. I will then discuss recent connections between interpolation problems and the birational geometry of Hilbert schemes of points and moduli spaces of vector bundles.
