## Curves Seminar - Mike Roth (Queen's University)

### Wednesday, October 9th, 2019

**Time:** 4:00-5:30 p.m ** Place:** Jeffery Hall 319

**Speaker:** Mike Roth (Queen's University)

**Title:** Classical results on canonical embeddings.

**Abstract:** We will discuss the canonical map in the case of hyperelliptic curves, the geometric interpretation of the Riemann-Roch theorem via the canonical map, the Hilbert polynomial and Hilbert function of canonically embedded curves, and start looking at examples of resolutions of canonical embeddings in small genus.
