Sofia Tirabassi (UiB): Characterization of product of theta divisors
Sofia Tirabassi (UiB), gives the Seminar in Algebra and Algebraic Geometry:
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).
