Compactified Jacobians and Abel maps for singular curves

Tuesday, March 10, 2009 -
4:30pm to 6:30pm
We will discuss the problem of extending the construction of the classical Abel maps for smooth curves to the case of singular curves. The construction of degree-1 Abel maps will be shown, together with an approach for constructing higher degree Abel maps.
