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

### Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

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

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

**Title:** Canonically embedded curves II.

**Abstract:** We will show that the canonical map is always an embedding for non-hyperelliptic curves, understand the canonical map in the hyperelliptic case, and discuss the ‘geometric interpretation’ of the Riemann-Roch theorem, via the canonical embedding.

Note that the seminar is starting later than its usual time, and will only go for an hour this week.
