4:00 pm Tuesday, November 30, 2010 Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Zero Cycles on Principal Homogeneous Spacesby
Jodi Black (Emory) in HB 227- Let k be a field and let G be a connected linear algebraic group over k. Let X be a principal homogeneous space under G over k. Serre has asked the following: "If X admits a zero cycle of degree one, does X have a k-rational point?" We discuss some settings in which the answer to this question is yes.
