    Smirnov's work on the standard conjectures

    Friday 1st May, 12-1pm, Carslaw 273.

    The standard conjectures, formulated by Grothendieck in the late 60's, are about algebraic cycles on projective varieties. We will review the various conjectures, the relations among them, and recent progress.

    The talk will assume little (some undergraduate level algebraic topology).
