"Algebraic Varieties and Lagrangian Cycles"

** Abstract: **
In this talk we shall outline a recent direction of research interrelating
symplectic geometry and algebraic geometry. We shall explain how methods
and ideas from symplectic geometry can be used to study classical
algebro-geometric problems on hyperplane sections and degenerations of
algebraic varieties.

Light refreshments will be served in the faculty lounge at 3:30.
