3:45PM: Sequences of log canonical thresholds

Mircea Mustata

The log canonical threshold of a function is an invariant that measures which powers of the function are locally integrable. This is an invariant that appears in many contexts, and that found many applications in birational geometry. I will discuss results and conjectures dealing with limit points of log canonical thresholds. This is joint work with Tommaso de Fernex.
