Title:F-pure thresholds of hypersurfaces
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Anurag Singh, University of Utah
Abstract:
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.
