Title: Tensors and Syzygies.
Abstract: Tensors are higher dimensional analogues of matrices. But unlike
matrices, there is still so much we don't know about their fundamental
algebraic properties. For example, for rankr matrices we know that the
determinants of all (r+1)minors of the matrix furnish a generating set
for the ideal of all relations among the entries of such matrices, but for
general rankr tensors we have almost no idea what polynomials generate
their ideals. Moreover the entire minimal free resolution of the ideal in
the matrix case is know in terms of representation theory (Lascoux,
EagonNorthocott, Weyman, and others), but relatively little is known in
the tensor case, (not even the length of the resolution).
I'll present evidence toward a conjecture on arithmetic
CohenMacaulayness that would generalize the EagonHochster result in the
matrix case. I'll also highlight recent work with Raicu and Sam where we
compute precise vanishing and nonvanishing of the syzygies of rank1
tensors.
