From the reviews: “Robin Hartshorne is the author of a well-known textbook from which several generations of mathematicians have learned modern algebraic. In the fall semester of I gave a course on deformation theory at Berkeley. My goal was to understand completely Grothendieck’s local. I agree. Thanks for discovering the error. And by the way there is another error on the same page, line -1, there is a -2 that should be a

Hence there must be an equation relating those a and b which describe isomorphic elliptic curves. Sign up using Facebook.

These are very different from the first order one, e. I think the defirmation you mentioned is the following one: I have tried reading few lecture notes, for example: Ravi’s introductory lecture was probably good, although it has been a long time since I’ve watched it.

Retrieved from ” https: This is true for moduli of curves.

If we have a Galois representation. Krish Here is one version: For genus 1, an elliptic curve has a one-parameter hartshore of complex structures, as shown in elliptic function theory.

In other words, deformations are regulated by holomorphic quadratic differentials on a Riemann surface, again something known classically. I came across these words while studying these papers a Desingularization of moduli varities for vector bundles on curves, Int. The rough idea is to start with some curve C through a chosen point and keep deforming it until it breaks into several components.

Seminar on deformations and moduli spaces in algebraic geometry and applications

There was also an MSRI workshop some years ago; I think the videos are still online and there is a draft of a book written by the organizers floating around the web.

Considering families over a fatter point, e. Dedormation Kontsevich is among those who have offered a generally accepted proof of this.

As it is explained very well in Hartshorne’s book, deformation theory is: Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

There is an obstruction in the H 2 of the same sheaf; which is always zero in case of a curve, for general reasons of dimension. Still many things are vague to me. Everything is done in a special case and shown to follow from basic algebra. Here is MSE copy: Brenin I have now deformahion idea about deformation.

One might think, in analogy, of a structure that is not completely rigid, and that deforms slightly to accommodate forces applied from the outside; this explains the name. Dori Bejleri 3, 1 11 In a “neighborhood” of this member of the family, eeformation other curves are smooth conics, so when we stare at this unique, very special singular conic, the natural question arises: Post Your Answer Discard By clicking “Post Your Answer”, you acknowledge that you have read our updated terms of serviceprivacy policy and cookie policyand that your continued use of the website is subject to these policies.


A simple application of this is defornation we can find the derivatives of monomials using hartshoorne. It is typically the case that it is easier to described the functor for a moduli problem instead of finding deformxtion actual space. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

Deformation theory – Wikipedia

I would appreciate if someone writes an answer either stating 1 Why to study deformation theory? These examples are the beginning of a theory applying to holomorphic families of complex manifolds, of any dimension.

There we found another strong link with moduli! Since we want to consider all possible expansions, we will let our predeformation functor be defined on objects as. A pre-deformation functor is defined as a functor.

May be as I read more I will understand it better.

I am finding it difficult to understand why everyone suddenly starts talking about artinian local algebras.

I’ll tell you later what nice group describes these objects! So it turns out that to deform yourself means to choose a tangent direction on the sphere.
