Abstract:
This talk will be based on the paper of Dan Abramovich, Kalle Karu, Kenji Matsuki and Jaroslaw Wlodarczyk. We will discuss the proof of the weak factorization conjecture: every birational map between complete nonsingular varieties over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero is a composite of blowings up and blowings down with smooth centers. Also we will see the difference between this proof and another proof, given by the fourth author.
