Time: 3 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department
We will survey recent progress of birational geometry in positive characteristic fields. As well, we will introduce subadditiviy of Kodaira dimension and canonical bundle formula in positive characteristics. These are joint work with Caucher Birkar, Lei Zhang and Yi Gu.
