**Title:** Graded algebras with pure resolution-I

**Speaker:** J.K.Verma, IIT Bombay

**Abstract:** We will give an expository account of several examples of graded algebras
with pure resolution. These arise as homogeneous co-ordinate rings of projective
varieties of minimal degree, rational normal scrolls, certain determinantal varieties,
Pfaffian ideals, Stanley Reisner ideals of simplicial complexes whose
Alexander duals are Cohen-Macaulay.
