Mateusz Michałek, Bernd Sturmfels: Invitation to Nonlinear Algebra

Abstract

Participants will work through the 13 chapters of the book manuscript with that title. The course will be a mix of lectures by participants and study sessions, with 2 hours devoted to each chapter. A tentative schedule is as follows:

1.Polynomial Rings(June 4, 10 - 12)
2.Varieties(June 4, 14 - 16)
3.Solving and Decomposing(June 5, 10 - 12)
4.Mapping and Projecting(June 5, 14 - 16)
5.Linear Spaces and Grassmannians(June 6, 10 - 12)
6.Nullstellensaetz(June 6, 14 - 16)
7.Tropical Algebra(June 11, 10 - 12)
8.Toric Varieties(June 11, 14 - 16)
9.Tensors(June 12, 14 - 16)
10.Representation Theory(June 13, 10 - 12)
11.Invariant Theory(June 13, 14 - 16)
12.Semidefinite Programming(June 14, 10 - 12)
13.Combinatorics(June 14, 14 - 16)

Each chapter will be assigned to one or two leading presenters. Participants from nearby universities (Leipzig, Berlin, Magdeburg,...) are most welcome. Travel support is available for assigned leaders.
