Let’s count: 1, q, q+1; here, q is a power of a prime p. In this talk, I will sketch an analogy between the geometry of a class of hypersurfaces over a field of positive characteristic p, which I call q-bic hypersurfaces, and the geometry of low degree hypersurfaces, such as quadrics and cubics…

The Hilbert scheme of n points in P^2 is smooth of dimension 2n and the tangent space to any monomial subscheme admits a pleasant combinatorial description. On the other hand, the Hilbert scheme of n points in P^3 is almost always singular and there is a conjecture by Briançon and Iarrobino…
