"An introduction to the Clemens-Schmid exact sequence"

Abstract

In this talk, we give a very elementary introduction to the Clemens-Schmid exact sequence. In a classical setting, this is a topological result about certain families of complex varieties or manifolds. Therefore, the purpose of the talk is to explain all the concepts involved.

If time allows, we will introduce the elements to understand in which cases we can obtain an arithmetic version of this result.
