On cohomology of function fields

27 April 2017
Adam Topaz

 This talk will discuss the so-called ``generic cohomology’’ of function fields over algebraically closed fields, from the point of view of motives and/or Zariski geometry. In particular, I will describe some interesting connections between cup products, algebraic dependence, and (geometric) valuation theory. As an application, I will mention a new result which reconstructs higher-dimensional function fields from their generic cohomology, endowed with some additional motivic data. 

   Everyone welcome!
