Coherent systems

Leticia Brambila Paz
CIMAT, Mexico.


Coherent systems on algebraic curves are a natural generalisation of classical linear systems. They relate to maps into Grassmannians in much the same way as linear systems relate to maps into projective spaces. In this talk, I will give an introduction to the subject, survey results from the past 15 years and state some open problems.
