Unirationality of Low Degree Hypersurfaces


There are several notions which define classes of projective varieties which are close to projective space: unirationality, rationality, stable rationality, etc.  I will discuss what is known about some of these notions for hypersurfaces. The focus of my talk will be on unirationality of hypersurfaces and how spaces of linear subvarieties can be used to show low degree hypersurfaces are unirational.

This is based on joint work with Eric Riedl.
