Topological properties of Abelian integrals
The second “learning in groups” meeting will be devoted to the study of the Gauss–Manin connexion in homology, which will ultimately result in a local representation of Abelian integrals as linear combinations of real powers and logarithms with analytic coefficients analytically depending on parameters.
This representation already suffices to produce local uniform bounds for the number of isolated zeros, as was explained on the previous Tuesday.
Recommended reading: Section 26 from the book (printing disabled), esp., subsections F and I-K.
Time and location: Tuesday Dec. 18, 2007, 14:00 (in place of the usual Geometry & Topology seminar time), Pekeris Room.
What it will be about: 😉
