Title: Singularities of Rees-like algebras
Abstract: Recently, J. McCullough and I. Peeva provided the first counterexamples to the Eisenbud-Goto Regularity Conjecture. These examples are obtained by a construction dubbed Rees-like algebra. Since there is still hope that the Regularity Conjecture may hold under additional assumptions (e.g. in the smooth case), it is natural to ask: How "bad" can the singularities of Rees-like algebras be? How are singularities affected by the Rees-like algebra construction?
In this talk, based on joint work with J. McCullough and L. Miller, we will provide quantitative and qualitative answers to these questions.
