3:45PM: The Equations of K3 CarpetsDavid EisenbudK3 surfaces are one possible answer to the question: what's the 2dimensional analogue of elliptic curves? There is a rich and beautiful geometric theory, but I'll talk about a highly degenerate form, the K3 carpets. There's a simple discrete classification, an easy way to write down the equations and Groebner bases, and an intriguing connection to Green's Conjecture on canonical curves.
