|Title:||The number of equations defining an algebraic set|
|Seminar:||Department of Mathematics Colloquium|
|Speaker:||Anurag Singh, University of Utrah|
|Given an algebraic set---i.e., the solution set of a family of polynomial equations---what is the minimal number of polynomials needed to define this set? The question is surprisingly difficult, with a rich history. We will give a partial survey, and discuss results and questions coming from local cohomology theory.|
