Computational Algebra Seminar: Elsenhans -- K3-surfaces and Picard groups

Speaker: Andreas-Stephan Elsenhans (Bayreuth)
Title: K3-surfaces and Picard groups
Time & Place: 3:05-4pm, Thursday 3 March, Carslaw 535

The most interesting invariant of a K3 surfaces is its Picard group.
A method for the computation was introduced by van Luijk. In this talk
I will present my work on improving and testing this method.
