Mathematics Continued Conference 2024
Mathematics Continued Conference 2024
Saturday, March 2nd, 2024
08:45 AM  04:30 PM
Monteith BuildingThe main goal of the conference is to give undergraduate students interested in math an idea of what graduate school may be like and to showcase some current research done by grad students and faculty members. The talks will be given at the level of a junior or seniorlevel undergraduate. We will also host a poster session for undergraduate students to display their research.

Given an irreducible projective variety \(X\), the covering gonality of \(X\) is the least gonality of an irreducible curve \(E\) contained in \(X\) and passing through a general point of \(X\).
In recent years, this birational invariant has been studied for various algebraic varieties, as e.g. hypersurfaces of the projective space and abelian varieties.
In this talk we will report on a joint work with Nicola Picoco, and we will be concerned with the covering gonality of the \(k\)fold symmetric product \(C_k\) of a smooth complex projective curve \(C\) of genus \(g>k\).
In particular, we will show that for \(k=2,3,4\), the covering gonality of \(C_k\) equals the gonality of the curve \(C\).
Moreover, we will see that under mild assumptions of generality on \(C\), the only curves \(E\) passing through a general point of \(C_k\) and having the same gonality as \(C\) are copies of \(C\) of the form \(p+C\), where \(p\) is a point of \(C_\).

MCHU 201 & ZoomAbstract
Many mathematical principles can be stated in the form “for all X such that C(X) holds, there is a Y such that D(X,Y) holds”, where X and Y range over secondorder objects, and C and D are arithmetic conditions. We can think of such a principle as a problem, where an instance of the problem is an X such that C(X) holds, and a solution to this instance is a Y such that D(X,Y) holds. I will discuss notions of reducibility between such problems coming from the closelyrelated perspectives of reverse mathematics and computability theory.
