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.
