Algebraic Geometry Seminar: "Spaces of rational curves on Fano hypersurfaces"

Speaker: Roya Beheshti Zavareh, Washington University in Saint Louis

Abstract: I will talk about the geometry of moduli spaces of rational curves and linear subvarieties on Fano hypersurfaces, focusing in particular on their dimension and irreducibility. I will also discuss some non-positivity results for spaces of rational curves on Fano hypersurfaces of low index. This is joint work with Eric Riedl.

Host: Matt Kerr
