Title: Quot scheme theory of surfaces
Speaker: Woonam Lim (ETH Zürich)
I will give an overview of the theory of Quot schemes of surfaces and their virtual invariants. The main conjecture of this subject, due to Oprea-Pandharipande, concerns rationality of the Quot scheme partition functions. I will explain how to approach this conjecture via Hilbert scheme of points and curves.
