NCTS Mini-Course in Algebraic Geometry: Linear systems on algebraic varieties
 

Lecturer: Prof. Caucher Birkar (University of Cambridge / NCTS Scholar)

Many fundamental properties of a projective algebraic variety X are determined by linear systems |D| of divisors D. Of particular interest are linear systems related to the canonical bundle KX. For example we would like to understand the linear systems |mKX| where m is a natural number. One asks whether the linear system gives a birational embedding of X or the so-called Iitaka fibration of X for relatively small numbers m.

The aim of these lectures is to give an overview of the subject. We will see that numerous tools and techniques of modern birational geometry naturally show up in the process. For example singularities play a crucial role.

NCTS/CMMSC Short Course in Probability: Genenal theory of Markov processes
 

Speaker
Yuan-Chung Sheu (National Chiao Tung University)

Course Description
Topics:
I. General definitions and existence problem
II. Feller semigroups
III. The strong Markov property
IV. Two important classes of Feller processes
V. From infinitesimal generators to Feller processes

The goal of this short course is to give a coincise introduction to the important ideas in the theory of continuous time Markov processes. We concentrate rather quickly on the case of Feller processes, and introduce in this framework the notion of generators, which permits attaching to the Markov processes a family of important martingales.

Time
13:00 – 15:30, Monday (3/23, 3/30, 4/13, 4/20, 4/27)

Venue
NCTU SA307 (交通大學 科學一館307室)
