Explicit Real Cubic Surfaces
The topological classification of smooth real
cubic surfaces is
recalled and compared to the classification in terms of
the number of real lines and of real tritangent planes,
as obtained
by L.~Schl\"afli in 1858.
Using this, explicit examples of
surfaces of every possible type are given.

A New Proof of a Theorem of Magnus
Using naive algebraic geometric methods a new proof of the
following celebrated theorem of Magnus is given:
Let $G$ be a group with a presentation having $n$ generators and $m$
relations. If $G$ also has a presentation on $nm$ generators, then
$G$ is free of rank $nm$.
