Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry: The Fellowship of the Ring: Linkage, Curves, and Koszul homology

Seminar | May 1 | 5-6 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Department of Mathematics

We conclude the linkage portion of the student seminar, by completing the proof of the theorem of Lazarsfeld-Rao that general curves of high degree are minimal in their linkage class. Time permitting, we will also discuss how Koszul homology behaves under linkage, including properties like being strongly Cohen-Macaulay or sliding depth.
