Student Commutative Algebra

Location:  4088 East Hall (3:00 PM to 4:00 PM)

Title:  Differential operators and symbolic powers

Abstract:   A classical theorem of Zariski and Nagata describes symbolic powers of prime ideals in polynomial rings in terms of differential operators. In this talk, we will introduce Grothendieck's notion of differential operators on commutative rings. Following Dao, De Stefani, Grifo, Huneke, and Nunez-Betancourt, we will give a proof of one of the containments in the Zariski-Nagata theorem. No previous experience with differential operators is required.
