From April 15 til May 8, Prof. Masaaki Homma from Kanagawa University visits the algebra group. He will work with Peter Beelen and Mrinmoy Datta on problems related to the intersection of a Hermitian surface and a surface of degree d. The aim is to solve a conjecture posed by a Danish Ph.D. student A.B. SÃ¸rensen in 1991. For d=1 and d=2 the conjecture is known to be true, while Peter and Mrinmoy recently made significant progress for d=3, see this previous post. For d>3 nothing is known as yet, but this may change soon!
