From cubic resolvents to geometry over the field with one element

Lecturer: Jean-Pierre Tignol, Université catholique de Louvain

The construction of the cubic resolvent of a quartic equation is best understood in terms of algebraic geometry in dimension 0. Expanding this construction to a correspondence between quartic algebras and quadratic extensions of cubic algebras leads to operations on quadrics over the field with one element.
