Hyperbolic secant varieties

  • Rainer Sinn (Freie Universität Berlin)
G3 10 (Lecture hall)


The goal of this talk is to discuss hyperbolic hypersurfaces, an extremal real topological type. A particular emphasis is on singular examples and I want to discuss one source of them, namely a method to construct them by considering secant varieties of real curves with the maximal number of connected components (aka M-curves).

This is based on joint work with Mario Kummer.
