Commutative Algebra

Date:  Thursday, February 22, 2018
Location:  B735 East Hall (3:00 PM to 4:00 PM)

Title:  Many associated primes of powers of primes

Abstract:   We use the notions of splitting and spreading to construct a family of prime ideals in polynomial rings for which the number of associated primes of the second power is exponential in the number of variables. Splitting is a generalization of McCullough-Peeva's step-by-step homogenization. This is joint work with Jesse Kim.
