Algebraic Geometry - history, challenges and applications
From Greg McCracken
This talk was part of the Birational Geometry and K-stability of Fano Varieties workshop at ICMS.
The talk is a brief introduction to Algebraic Geometry, one of the oldest (and most beautiful) areas of Mathematics, living at the confluence of Geometry and Algebra. After highlighting some historical aspects and developments, we will explain an important application of Algebraic Geometry to modern cryptography.
