Chapters on algebraic surfaces

TLDR
This is a first graduate course in algebraic geometry, with lots of interesting topics taken from the classification of surfaces, and a human-oriented discussion of some of the technical foundations, but with no pretence at an exhaustive treatment.

Geometric cycles on moduli spaces of curves

The aim of this thesis is the explicit computation of certain geometric cycles in moduli spaces of curves. In recent years, divisors of Mg,n have been extensively studied. Computing classes in

3264 and All That: A Second Course in Algebraic Geometry

Introduction 1. Introducing the Chow ring 2. First examples 3. Introduction to Grassmannians and lines in P3 4. Grassmannians in general 5. Chern classes 6. Lines on hypersurfaces 7. Singular

Linear manifolds in the moduli space of one-forms

We study closures of GL_2(R)-orbits on the total space of the Hodge bundle over the moduli space of curves under the assumption that they are algebraic manifolds. We show that, in the generic

Lectures on K3 Surfaces

TLDR
Famous open conjectures, for example the conjectures of Calabi, Weil, and Artin–Tate, are discussed in general and for K3 surfaces in particular and each chapter ends with questions and open problems.

THE MODULI SPACE OF CURVES AND ITS TAUTOLOGICAL RING

T he moduli space of curves has proven itself a central object in geometry. The past decade has seen substantial progress in understanding the moduli space of curves, involving ideas, for example,

Geometry of general curves via degenerations and deformations

This thesis studies the geometric and deformational behavior of linear series under degenerations with the aim of attacking the maximal rank conjecture. There are three parts. The first part gives an

Hyperbolic secant varieties of M-curves

Abstract We relate the geometry of curves to the notion of hyperbolicity in real algebraic geometry. A hyperbolic variety is a real algebraic variety that (in particular) admits a real fibered

Algebraic Brill-Noether Theory

We give an overview of the foundations and the basic results of the classical Brill-Noether Theory, which deals with the geometry of the moduli varieties parametrizing effective divisors and linear

OK, we've seen upper semicontinuity of the ramification sequence

So again, let's try to wonder what the " limit " linear series of the V t will be: this should be a bunch of linear series on X, Y

What do we get in the limit? This is what the game of specialization is all about. We let these linear series degenerate at zero, and see what we might get
