Participate in the CIMPA-ICTP online course of Rodrigo Gondim!


Join Rodrigo Gondim's course "Hessians and the Lefschetz Properties" from June 26 to 29.

Rodrigo Gondim is a professor at

Universidade Federal Rural de Pernambuco (Brazil)

The course will be given in English on zoom.

This is a recurrent meeting, so please register only once for all 4 sessions:…

The course will take place on the following days (Paris time zone):

  • Monday 26 June: 3pm - 5pm
  • Tuesday 27 June: 3pm - 5pm
  • Wednesday 28 June: 3pm - 5pm
  • Thursday 29 June: 3pm - 5pm


In this course we revisit classical problems involving hypersurfaces with vanishing Hessian, we present the structure of standard graded Artinian Gorenstein algebras and the notions of higher order Hessians. We show how these Hessians control the Lefschetz properties of the algebra and we link it with the classical theory.

Please note that the CIMPA/ICTP courses will be recorded and broadcasted on our Youtube channel "CIMPA Math" and on

Programme of other courses.

CIMPA does not provide certificates of attendance for online courses.

This course will be filmed at ICTP (Trieste, France).
