Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry

David Cox

Amherst College, USA   -

This talk will survey aspects of the emerging field of combinatorial algebraic geometry. The topics covered will include polytopes involved in quantum computing, formulas for a classical secant variety, likelihood functions, and the combinatorics of a classical moduli space as revealed by tropical geometry. I will also mention some of the computational issues involved.
