Emmy Noether (1882-1935)

Emmy Noether Professorship

(Emmy-Noether-Gastprofessur)

In honour of the great mathematician Emmy Noether the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Göttingen has created a visiting professorship named after the scientist, who studied, taught und researched in Göttingen from 1915 until 1933. Once a year the faculty awards the Emmy Noether professorship to an outstandig female mathematician who will visit Göttingen for 3 to 4 weeks to present a current field of research in talks and seminars.

Wintersemester 2012/13

Prof. Claire Voisin from the Centre de mathématiques Laurent Schwartz at the Ecole polytechnique was the eleventh Emmy-Noether professor. She visited Göttingen from November 25 until December 7, 2012 and gave the following lectures:

  • talk ("Mathematische Gesellschaft"):
    "On the topology of algebraic varieties" (Thursday, Nov 29, 2012, 4:45-5:45 p.m.)
    This lecture will be devoted to presenting classical topological results in complex algebraic geometry, starting from the low dimensional situation, (curves and surfaces), and concluding with the Lefschetz theorem on hyperplane sections.
  • 1. lecture: "Hodge structures and algebraic cycles I" (Tuesday, Dec 4, 2012, 2:15-3:45 p.m.)
  • 2. lecture: "Hodge structures and algebraic cycles II" (Wednesday, Dec 5, 2012, 12:15-1:45 p.m.)
    In these lectures, I plan to give an introduction to Hodge structures and to describe the interplay between the complexity of Hodge structures and the size of Chow groups of an algebraic variety defined over the complex numbers.
