Varieties with Euler characteristic 1

Sofia Tirabassi (University of Utah)

We give a complete characterization of varieties with Euler characteristic equal to one of maximal Albanese dimension an irregularity 2dim(X)-1, extending in higher dimension results of Hacon-Pardini on the surfaces. We also provide a new birational characterization of theta divisors. This is joint work with Z. Jiang and M. Lahoz.
