Infinite Veronesean Caps

at 12 noon in MLR 2 on Tuesday 13 April.

Abstract: Veronesean varieties are fundamental objects in geometry, be it classical algebraic geometry or modern finite geometry. In the finite case both quadric Veroneseans and Hermitian Veroneseans, which are defined algebraically, were characterized geometrically as Veronesean caps. Replacing counting arguments by a more synthetic approach we were able to extend these results to arbitrary division rings. Moreover, we consider a much larger class of Veronesean caps, and their relation with Jordan algebras. (joint work with H. van Maldeghem).
