Description: | Commutative algebra seminar Speaker: Madhusudan Manjunath Date and time : Tuesday 20 Feb, 11.30am-1.00pm Venue: Room 215 Title: Groebner bases of Toric Ideals. Abstract: This is the first of two lectures where we'll cover Groebner bases of toric ideals. We start with an introduction to toric ideals and then study their Grobener bases. Our main goal will be a theorem of Bernd Sturmfels from 1991 that relates (certain) initial ideals of toric ideals to regular triangulations of an associated point configuration. The lectures are based on Chapters 4 and 8 of the book ``Groebner Bases and Convex Polytopes'' by Sturmfels. |
