Algebraic Geometry: "Toric surfaces over an arbitrary field"

Dr. Fei Xie, UCLA

Category: Seminar

Description: I will introduce toric varieties over arbitrary fields and classify minimal smooth projective toric surfaces. Then I will give an overview of the Merkurjev-Panin motivic category and give an explicit construction of the decomposition of toric surfaces in the motivic category into products of finite Azumaya algebras. I will explain how these Azumaya algebras determine the corresponding toric surfaces.
