Düsseldorf-Münster Model Theory Seminar,

   Düsseldorf Doctoral Research Seminar in Pure Mathematics



This is a seminar with two purposes:

1. We have invited guests giving talks about their research.
2. We give talks among ourselves introducing each other to our own research. These talks should explain basic notions; interruptions, discussion and deviations from the original plan are very welcome.


The standard time and place is Mondays, 16:30-17:30, Room 25.22.03.73. Occasional exceptions from this rule (e.g. when a speaker is not here on Monday) will be marked next to the talk.

If you are interested in speaking or inviting a guest for this seminar, please contact one of the organizers:

                   Peter Arndt
                   David Bradley-Williams
                   Kevin Langlois


This seminar is part of the activities of the Research Training Group GRK 2240: Algebro-geometric Methods in Algebra, Arithmetic and Topology.

Abstracts:



  • Monday, 11. 02. 2019:     Dmitry Sustretov (Moscow), Geometry of Berkovich curves

    Berkovich analytification of a variety over a non-Archimedean complete real valued field k, such as C((t)), or Q_p, is a locally ringed arcwise connected topological space. The structure of such an analytification is tightly connected with the models of the variety over the value ring. This talk is an introduction to these notions. I will discuss semi-stable models of smooth projective curves and associated triangulations of their Berkovich analytifications, which are non-Archimedean analogues of pair of pants decompositions of Riemannian surfaces. This talk will serve as a preliminary talk to the Tuesday seminar.
