Hi there!

My name is Xingyu (Tiger) Cheng. I am a 3rd year mathematics PhD student at UNC Chapel Hill working under Prakash Belkale. I received my undergraduate degree at Purdue University in 2021 with a BS in mathematics and with minors in German and Computer Science. I am roughly interested in algebraic geometry and representation theory. I think a lot about moduli of vector bundles on curves and local systems.

Some miscellaneous notes

Here are some various notes that I've typed up over time, either for class presentations or various talks I've given at UNC. These are listed in no particular order.


At UNC I've had the opportunity to be a graduate student mentor for the Directed Reading Program (DRP):

The Directed Reading Program (DRP) pairs undergraduate students with graduate student mentors for semester-long independent study projects. It is an opportunity for motivated students to get one-on-one mentorship as they learn about a math topic of their interest but is out of the scope of the courses offered at UNC. Topics can include specific problems of interest, more in-depth learning about a course topic, or an introduction to higher level math.
