Knot theory and deformations of singularities of complex curves
Vortrag von Dr. Marco Golla Datum: 07.12.16 Zeit: 10.00 - 12.00 Raum: Y27H46
Knots and links naturally appear in the neighbourhood of the singularity of a complex curve; this creates a bridge between algebraic geometry and differential topology, and this connection has been studied for almost a century. I will discuss some new results about 1-parameter families of singular curves, obtained using modern tools in low-dimensional topology (namely, Heegaard Floer homology). This is joint work with József Bodnár and Daniele Celoria.
