4:00 pm Tuesday, January 30, 2018 AGNT: Canonical rings of stacky curvesby David Zurieck-Brown (Emory University) in HBH 227- We give a generalization to stacks of the classical (1920's) theorem of Petri -- we give a presentation for the canonical ring of a stacky curve. This is motivated by the following application: we give an explicit presentation for the ring of modular forms for a Fuchsian group with cofinite area, which depends on the signature of the group. This is joint work with John Voight.
