|Title:||F-pure thresholds of hypersurfaces|
|Seminar:||Algebra and Number Theory Seminar|
|Speaker:||Anurag Singh, University of Utah|
|The F-pure threshold is a positive characteristic analogue of characteristic zero log canonical thresholds; it is more subtle in that it distinguishes supersingular and ordinary elliptic curves. We will discuss the calculation of F-pure thresholds for elliptic curves and, more generally, Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces. This is work in progress with Bhargav Bhatt.|
