Title:  "Life hacking" in toric algebras

Abstract:   To life hack means figuring out how to make some aspect of your daily life easier or more efficient.
As mathematicians, we really want to life hack the study of an unwieldy abstract construction, or of some palatable numeric data, or whatever.
I'll survey some cases of doing this in the ballpark of my research area, leveraging "ALGECOM" info (algebra-geometry-combinatorics), at the interface between asymptotic and combinatorial commutative algebra. While familiarity with notions in Math 614/631 is helpful, everyone is welcome to attend the talk.
