Pure Maths Colloquium: Real K3 surfaces

Presented by V.V. Nikulin (Liverpool),

31 October 2005 16:00 in CM221

"Up to deformation, there are three real forms of elliptic curves which depend on the number of real ovals: 0, 1 or 2. All elliptic curves are hyper-elliptic, and there real forms can be obtained by the double covering of P1/R ramified in four points, some of them conjugate.
K3 surfaces give a 2-dimensional generalization of elliptic curves. What about similar results as above for them? This will be the subject of the talk."
