Special Seminar

Title: Using combinatorics to study resolutions of monomial ideals
Speaker: Sonja Mapes
Speaker Info: Notre Dame
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Minimal free resolutions of ideals measure the complexity of an ideal by looking at relations on the generators, relations between the relations, etc. In general these can be difficult to compute, but they carry a lot of important algebraic and geometric information. For ideals generated by monomials there are a variety of combinatorial objects that one can associate to the ideal. These can help us figure out information about resolutions. This talk will explain what a free resolution is, and give examples showing how tools from combinatorics can be used to help us understand the resolutions of monomial ideals and other related invariants.
