This post is another brief update from the ongoing IPAM semester on Algebraic Techniques for Combinatorial and Computational Geometry.
If you are not in Los Angeles but are interested in these topics, you can now view videos of many of the talks that we had here. Talks from the tutorials week can be found here. Talks from the workshop “Combinatorial Geometry Problems at the Algebraic Interface” can be found here. I assume that talks from the workshop “Tools from Algebraic Geometry” will also be available soon.
Another brief update: You might remember that in my previous IPAM post I was excited about a talk by Larry Guth. Not only that you can now watch the video of this talk, but you can also read the paper.
And now for quote of the week:
It is like defining a ham sandwich as “what you have in your lunchbox after taking the apple out”.
Ben Lund, unsatisfied with a famous textbook’s definition of Grassmannians.
After three weeks without any main events, another workshop begins tomorrow. So more updates will follow.
