Daniel Greb (Universität Duisburg-Essen) will speak in the geometry seminar on Tuesday 17 March 2020 at 11h am in the Salle des Profs. Daniel’s title is *Projectively flat sheaves and characterisations of finite quotients of projective spaces* and his abstract is below.

*I will explain how to extend the classical characterisation of projective space among Kähler-Einstein Fano manifolds in terms of a Chern class (in)equality to the class of Fano varieties with Kawamata log terminal singularities. I will spend significant time on discussing the necessary tools, which range from analysis (harmonic metrics / Simpson correspondence) and classical differential geometry to algebraic geometry (local fundamental groups of klt singularities). This is joint work with Stefan Kebekus and Thomas Peternell, and partly with Behrouz Taji.*
