Extensions of the WHFPF in projective algebraic geometry will be discussed. In particular, an extension, described by Loring Tu (2015) as a lost theorem of Shimura, will be investigated.

Some comments will be made on Grothendiecks SGA 6 seminar series and on the proposed (but never written) EGA XI.


Dr Peter Donovan is from the UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics. He has publications in algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, representation theory, homological algebra, and the insecurity of Japanese naval ciphers in WW2. Currently his interests are returning to modular representation theory and geometrical physics.

Dr Donovan's book, "Code Breaking in the Pacific", co-authored with Professor John Mack, was released by Springer Publishing in September 2014.
