Title:Hibi rings in invariant theory
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Roger Howe, Yale University
Hibi rings are a special type of semigroup ring with very nice properties. They were discovered as part of the effort to understand the conceptual structure of Hodge's standard monomial theory, which was developed to facilitate computations in theory and related algebraic geometry. It has turned out that Hibi rings have many applications in invariant theory and representation theory. This talk will discuss some history and uses of Hibi rings.
