**Title: **Enumerative Geometry of singular curves in a Linear System

**Abstract:** Enumerative geometry is a branch of mathematics that deals with the following question: "How many geometric objects satisfy certain constraints". A well known class of enumerative question is to count curves in a linear system H^0(X,L) that have some prescribed singularities. In this talk we will describe a topological method to approach this problem. We will express the enumerative numbers as the Euler class of an appropriate bundle. We will then go on to explain how we compute the degenerate contribution of the Euler class using a topological method.

**Title: Characterization of product of theta divisors**

Abstract: This is a joint work with Z. Jiang and M. Lahoz. We give a new cohomological characterization of product of theta divisors in principally polarized abelian varieties and we completely classify n-varieities with of maximal albanese dimension and with irregularity 2n-1 and euler characteristic 1, extending lower dimensional results of Hacon--Pardini. I will do my best to keep the first hour enjoyable and entertaining also for graduate students with background in algebraic geometry (and related areas).
