Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry: The Fellowship of the Ring: The Priddy Koszul complex and resolution of the residue field of a local ring

Seminar | April 9 | 5-6 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

Last week Mike Stillman spoke about recent investigations of Koszul algebras. I'll give some more general background on resolutions of the residue field of a local ring, and talk about work of Conca and others on bounds for the syzygies of a Koszul ring.
