Supporting Physics and Math Teaching & Research in Latin America
Physics Without Frontiers (PWF) and Physics Latam are pleased to announce our upcoming mini-course on Algebraic Geometry.
This mini-course will be taught online 3 times a week from the 1st - 31st of August 2023 by Daniel Galviz, YMSC (Tsinghua University) & ICTS (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research) and Francisco Villacis, Waterloo University.
Algebraic Geometry is the study of geometric objects defined by algebraic equations. In this mini-course, we will introduce students to the basic concepts and techniques of Algebraic Geometry. We will cover topics such as varieties, schemes, sheaves, cohomology, and the Riemann-Roch theorem. Students will gain an understanding of the fundamental concepts and techniques of Algebraic Geometry and will be equipped with the necessary tools to study more advanced topics in the field.
Students will have the opportunity to solve weekly assignments and participate in online discussions. To further enhance the learning experience, the course will feature a series of expert guest speakers who will deliver lectures on the latest developments in Algebraic Geometry and applications.
This advanced course is designed for senior undergraduate and graduate students from Latin America who have a background in Abstract Algebra and Topology, notions of Differential Geometry might be useful.
Students who complete the course will receive an ICTP-PWF certificate.
Physics Latam is committed to providing a platform for students in Latin America to pursue advanced studies in physics and Mathematics. As part of this commitment, top-performing students without MSc./Ph.D. will be mentored to pursue studies abroad by providing advice and recommendations about scholarships at international programs.
