Algebra & Algebraic Geometry Seminar-Brian Harbourne-Geproci sets: a confluence of geometry, algebra, combinatorics and representation theory


Abstract:  Studying inverse scattering problems has led to remarkable advances in scientific knowledge. Here we propose carrying this idea over to classification problems in algebraic geometry. As a specific example we consider the following problem: which finite subsets of 3 dimensional projective space project from a general point to a complete intersection in a plane?
