Title: Recruitment Symposium: Formulas for Degeneracy Loci
Abstract: In the 1840's, Cayley and Salmon found formulas for the loci of m by n matrices which do not have maximal rank. Because these varieties are defined by many more equations than their codimension, finding such formulas has been a challenge and stimulus to the development of intersection theory ever since.
