Workshop on FourierMukai transformation and abelian varieties. February 67 2004, Universität Essen 

DfG Schwerpunkt Globale Methoden in der komplexen Geometrie 

Organizers: Franziska Bittner and Manuel Blickle.  
Programme: Using Polishchuk's book [1] Abelian Varieties, Theta Functions and the Fourier transform we want to understand the modern technique of FourierMukai transforms. As a concrete goal we aim for Beilinson's and Polishchuk's [2] proof of the Torelli theorem which uses FourierMukai transforms. The workshop will also discuss some classical results on abelian varieties but will present them from a modern point of view. See the link below for a more detailed description of the topics.
