Department of Mathematics and Statistical Science Algebra Seminar Series

About the Seminar

The Department of Mathematics and Statistical Science Algebra Seminar is a graduate student led seminar series that provides graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in mathematics the opportunity to give professional mathematical talks. These talks are open to any who would like to attend, and their contents reflect a variety of mathematical disciplines.

Times and Locations

For Spring 2022, the Algebra Seminar meets on alternating Tuesdays, from 11:00am - 12:00pm, on Zoom (occasionally it will also be offered in-person in TLC 247; the in-person offerings will be noted in the schedule below).

  • We will use the same Zoom Link each week. Passcode: 818108
  • Check the schedule below for more information.

Dr. Stefan Tohaneanu (Univ Idaho)
Ideals generated by fold products of linear forms

Abstract: On method for computing the minimum distance of a linear code is to check if certain projective schemes are empty or not. The defining ideals of these schemes are ideals generated by fold products of the linear forms that are dual to the generating matrix of the linear code. Geometrically, the projective varieties defined by these ideals are union of subspaces of various dimensions, and they generalize the more classical objects known as star configurations.

In this talk I will review some (most) of the algebraic properties of these ideals, taking the chance to introduce the audience to some of the classical concepts in commutative algebra.
