Time: 15:40
Place: Mathematics Seminar Room, SA – 141

Abstract: After In the minimal model program it is known that there exist many examples of rationally connected varieties, such as smooth Fano varieties. In this talk I will present a paper by Janos Kollar, mainly concerned with the etale fundamental groups of separably rationally connected varieties.
