Uniform asymptotic growth of symbolic powers (Robert Walker, University of Michigan)

October 30 @ 12:15 pm - 1:10 pm

Algebraic geometry (AG) is a major generalization of linear algebra which is fairly influential in mathematics. Since the 1980’s with the development of computer algebra systems like Mathematica, AG has been leveraged in areas of STEM as diverse as statistics, robotic kinematics, computer science/geometric modeling, and mirror symmetry. Part one of my talk will be a brief introduction to AG, to two notions of taking powers of ideals (regular vs symbolic) in Noetherian commutative rings, and to the ideal containment problem that I study in my thesis. Part two of my talk will focus on stating the main results of my thesis in a user-ready form, giving a “comical” example or two of how to use them. At the risk of sounding like Paul Rudd in Ant-Man, I hope this talk with be awesome.
