Title:The Hilbert-Mumford Criterion
Seminar:Tensor Networks and Applications Seminar
Speaker:Jacob Turner, Penn State University
Abstract:
In Invariant theory, understanding the Zariski closure of orbits is very important. However, since the Zariski topology is not Hausdorff, the usual notion of limits of sequences fails. We instead focus on a tool that allows us to still consider limit points, namely the Hilbert-Mumford criterion. We look at alternate formulations of this criterion as well as some motivating examples.
