Presented by:

Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
I'll discuss my recent proof, joint with Hacking and Gross, of Tyurin's conjecture on canonical theta functions for polarized K3 surface, and our expectation that the construction determines a canonical toroidal compactification of moduli of polarized K3 surfaces, such that the universal family extends to a family of SLC Gorenstein K-trivial surfaces.
