  • Dr. Nanayakkara Colloquium Talk Thursday Sept 19 2019

    The Department of Mathematics and Statistics would like to invite anyone interested, including undergraduate and graduate students, to a Colloquium Talk by Dr. Basic Nanayakkara on Thursday September 19, 2019 from 2:30 to 3:30 PM. The talk will take place in South Block 216 and is entitled Rings and the spectra in Algebraic Geometry.

    Abstract:

    Given a commutative ring with unity, we will construct its spectrum as a topological space. If time permits we will study the notion of affine schemes. This is an introductory talk on algebraic geometry and so is accessible to undergraduate students who are familiar with the notion of rings and the definition of a topology on a set
