Should cohomology of $mathbb{C} P^infty$ be a polynomial ring or a power series ring?

Some people define total cohomology of a space $X$ to be $bigoplus_{i geq 0} H^i(X)$, which would make $H^*(mathbb{C} P^infty)$ a polynomial ring in one generator of...

How to find a rational $mathbb{F}_{!q}$-curve on a quite classical Calabi–Yau threefold?

Take a finite field $mathbb{F}_{!q}$ such that $q equiv 1 pmod 3$, i.e., $omega mathrel{:=} sqrt[3]{1} in mathbb{F}_{!q}$, $omega neq 1$. Also, for $i in...

Eigenvectors of random unitary matrices

Any unitary matrix $U$ can be diagonalized by another unitary matrix $V$,$$U=VDV^dagger,$$where $D={rm diag}(z_1,z_2,...,z_N)$ is diagonal. If $U$ is taken at random uniformly...

Exceptional divisor of the Hilbert-Chow morphism of the punctual Hilbert scheme

Let $X$ be a smooth and projective variety of dimension $d>1$. Let $X^{[2]}$ denote the Hilbert scheme of length two subschemes of $X$. Let $X^{(2)}:=Xtimes X/mathbb{Z}_2$, where $mathbb{Z}_2$ acts by...
