Joint Seminar of Analysis, Geometry, and Topology Department
19 February 2019 @ 14:00 - 16:00
The next meeting of the Joint Seminar of Analysis, Geometry and Topology Department will be held on February 19, 2019 at 14:00 in Room 478 of IMI.
A talk on:
Cut-and-paste problem for polyhedral and algebraic varieties
will be delivered by Peter Petrov, IMI-BAS.
Everybody is invited.
Abstract. The first part of this talk includes the history of Hilbert’s third problem, and the idea of the proof, proposed by Dehn, plus some more recent results. After formulating the problem for varieties and some related to it problems, we will review the main results obtained, and will discuss briefly the case of toric varieties.
