(UNI Münster )

im Hörsaal A 027 über das Thema

(x^2 + x)^3 + (y^2 + y)^3 + (z^2 + z)^3 = t

Abstract: I will describe the polynomial of the title through the eyes of a differential geometer. The story involves 4-manifolds, Einstein metrics, the Calabi conjecture and complex hyperbolic geometry. All of these concepts will be introduced in the talk; the only prerequisites are the definition of a polynomial and the implicit function theorem.
