Title:Combinatorics arising from the study of tensors
Seminar:Applied Algebra and Network Theory Seminar
Speaker:Claudiu Raicu, Princeton
Abstract Link:http://www.math.princeton.edu/~craicu/
Abstract:
I will explain a polarization technique that allows one to translate basic algebro-geometric questions arising from the study of tensors into very concrete combinatorial problems via representation theory. In particular, I will describe the relationship between the syzygies of Segre and Veronese varieties and the homology groups of the clique complexes associated to certain graphs.
