Prerequisite: This class is aimed at advanced students already having some familiarity with the subject area.

Course description: The goal of the class is to understand a major theorem or a recent result in algebraic geometry or related fields. Students will be assigned individual subjects after a preliminary discussion of possible choices. Grading will be based on an oral presentation or a written text. The instructor will mainly act as advisor, orienting students to background material and answering questions. In this way they will get a foretaste of future graduate work and individual research.
