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

### Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

**Time:** 2:00-3:30 p.m ** Place:** Jeffery Hall 116

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

**Title:** Beauville’s results on classification of Kähler manifolds with $c_1(K_X)=0$.

**Abstract:** We will discuss Beauville’s paper giving a classification statement for (compact, complex) Kähler manifolds with vanishing first Chern class. The Hilbert scheme of points comes in to construct examples of ``irreducible holomorphic symplectic manifolds’’, one of the pieces appearing in the classification.
