Special determinants in higher-rank Brill-Noether theory

Osserman, B
Thursday 21 April 2011, 15:30-16:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


We give a brief survey of the role of special determinants in higher-rank Brill-Noether theory, including the original work of Bertram, Feinberg, and Mukai on smooth curves in the case of canonical determinant, generalizations to other determinants, and work (joint with Montserrat Teixidor i Bigas) on degeneration techniques in this context.
