Introduction to the Hodge Conjecture

Al Vitter - TULANE UNIVERSITY

Abstract

 

This will be the first of probably 2 talks. The Hodge Conjecture concerns smooth (non-singular) complex projective varieties. It relates the purely algebraic structure of the variety to its topological/complex-analytic structure via its cohomology groups. I will begin by discussing in a relatively untechnical way, some of the mathematics needed to state clearly the Hodge Conjecture. Then I will concentrate on some aspects that  bring out (hopefully) the subtlety and importance of the conjecture.
