Title:  27 Lines on a Cubic Surface

Abstract:   This will be an introductory talk, with the end goal of establishing the classical result that there exist 27 lines on a cubic surface. We will discuss a bit of intersection theory and the other preliminary notions: in particular, we will more precisely state what it means to be a "line" on a cubic surface.
