Hodge theory is a beautiful and powerful subject, and the algebraic geometry prerequisites are minimal.
We will follow Voisin's book, Hodge Theory and Complex Algebraic Geometry I. It is available in electronic form via the University of Liverpool library website.
This is intended as a friendly learning seminar; we will take the time to introduce the foundational material and discuss examples. I have a timeline for the first part of the seminar, but feel free to put forward suggestions for additional topics. Everybody is welcome!
The seminar will be held virtually on Teams. The team name is "Working seminar on Hodge theory". Please email me if you need the team link.
Schedule: Wednesday 4-5pm
First talk: April 22, 2020
