Title: Hodge structures in algebraic geometry
Hodge structures of weight 1 appear implicitly in the study of Riemann surfaces and their Jacobians, which are associated complex tori. In higher weight (degree, dimension), the theory of Hodge structures has been developed by Griffiths starting from the Hodge decomposition theorem.
I will explain what a Hodge structure is and how it can be used to study the geometry of algebraic varieties (or Kähler manifolds).
Reception will be held at 16:30 in the Faculty Lounge Amado Mathematics Building, 8th Floor.
