## Lecture 15: Monday, September 23, 2013

Today we discuss how some familiar objects — namely the circle, the sphere, the torus, and even elliptic curves — are each examples of non-singular algebraic curves which are also compact, connected Riemann surfaces. Advertisements

## Lecture 14: Friday, September 20, 2013

Eventually, we wish to show that every compact, connected Riemann surface is a nonsingular algebraic curve. Today, we discuss what is means to be a “nonsingular algebraic curve” using Dedekind Domains.

## Lecture 13: Wednesday, September 18, 2013

In Lecture 11 and Lecture 12, we discussed examples of Riemann Surfaces and their relation with the Riemann Sphere . Today, we put things into perspective by considering the larger picture: we discuss tesselations of the upper half plane, covering … Continue reading

## Lecture 12: Monday, September 16, 2013

Last time, we introduced the Fundamental Domain in terms of the extended complex plane . Felix Klein showed the existence of a function , invariant under , giving these isomorphisms. Today, we use Richard Dedekind‘s function to create similar functions … Continue reading
