Student Commutative Algebra

Date:  Tuesday, April 10, 2018
Location:  3096 East Hall (3:00 PM to 4:00 PM)

Title:  What is...a Waldschmidt constant?

Abstract:   I'll discuss an numerical invariant of homogenous polynomial ideals as it intersects with various topics in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry. It will resurge with a cameo in my talk in the U-M Combinatorics seminar on Friday. I aim for this to be a truncated survey talk of about 30 minutes duration, where I name-drop a handful of facts, omitting proofs.
