Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry: The Fellowship of the Ring: Projective bundles and their Chow rings

Seminar | February 20 | 3:45-5 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

We give a gentle introduction to projective bundles, and explicitly describe their Chow rings (as we will see, this is closely related to the Chern classes as previously introduced). We will see how this allows us to describe Chow rings of interesting varieties, such as blowups along linear spaces.
