What is ... a Hodge locus?

This page hosts information on Ananyo Dan's talk "What is ... a Hodge locus?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, December 7, 5:30pm at HU, RUD 25 1.023.


Given a family of smooth projective varieties B, the Hodge locus corresponding to a Hodge class \gamma parametrizes all b \in B where \gamma remains a Hodge class. In this talk we discuss the definition of a Hodge class, variation of Hodge structures and the statement of the Hodge conjecture. We also look at the Lefschetz (1,1)-theorem which states that the Hodge conjecture is true in the case of divisors.
