Minicourse by Alexander Fink: Algebraic geometry for matroids

Oct 22, 2018 - Nov 14, 2018

I anticipate discussing topics such as my work with Speyer on constructing the Tutte polynomial from torus orbits on a Grassmannian, the "Hodge package" techniques used by Adiprasito, Huh and Katz to prove their log-concavity result, and hyperfields and their Grassmannians. More precise schedules will be posted as the lectures draw nearer.

This minicourse will take place on:

 Monday 22 October - 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Wednesday 24 October - 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Monday 12 November - 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Wednesday 14 November - 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
