Crazy Wednesday

Wednesday 4 May is going to be a crazy day in Cambridge (ah, high-class problems). Packing in as much as you can will take Planning. Here’s what is on the menu for geometry seminars and the Birch–Swinnerton-Dyer conference. Scramble as best you can!

1.30–2.30 in MR 2
Bryan Birch (Oxford) and Peter Swinnerton-Dyer (Cambridge).
How It Happened

2.30–3.30 in MR 13
Max Lieblich (Washington).
Derived categories of K3 surfaces in positive characteristic

3.00–4.00 in MR 2
John Cremona (Warwick).
Numerical evidence for the Birch Swinnerton-Dyer Conjecture

4.00–5.00 in MR 13
Francis Bonahon (USC).
Character varieties of surfaces and Kauffman brackets

4.30–5.30 in MR 2
John Tate (University of Texas at Austin).
Old thoughts on elliptic curves, BSD, and algebraic cycles

Actually, Thursday is at least as jam-packed, so pace yourself.
