Student Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Mixed Hodge structures

Seminar | April 3 | 4-5 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall

We will discuss how to define mixed Hodge structures (via Deligne) on the cohomology of non-smooth and non-proper varieties, with examples. We will then apply these results to a cohomological vanishing problem in representation theory.
