On Tuesday I gave a talk on Anderson’s log-algebraicity at Ohio State University to an audience of mostly grad students and advanced undergrads in a seminar entitled What is…?. I used the extremely powerful transcendence results of M. Papanikolas and others as motivation for where log-algebraicity can take you. There are also applications of Anderson’s results to the new constructions of L. Taelman that we’ve been studying on this blog, but these are not mentioned below.
Notes for the talk are attached are linked RIGHT HERE. Any comments, corrections, hints, tips, or tricks are welcome.
