Title: | Using Frobenius to produce global sections in characteristic p |

Seminar: | Algebra and Number Theory Seminar |

Speaker: | Karl Schwede, Penn State University |

Abstract: |

In characteristic zero, one common way to prove that sections of line bundles exist is to set up various short exact sequences and use Kodaira vanishing (and generalizations). These vanishing theorems are false in characteristic p. Fortunately, I'll describe some methods which can be used to produce global sections of line bundles and discuss some recent applications (some by me, some not). |
