# Sofia Tirabassi: Algebraic Geometry and the Classification Problem

**Time: **
Tue 2024-02-13 13.00 - 15.00

**Location: **
Albano, Cramer room

**Participating: **
Sofia Tirabassi (SU)

**Abstract:**

I will give an overview of what smooth projective and quasi-projective varieties are and introduce the problem of classifying them. I will state celebrated classification theorems of Castelnuovo, Enriques, Chen–Hacon, as well as a very recent extension by myself (joint with M. Mendes Lopes and R. Pardini).
