Combinatorial Resolutions of Monomial Ideals

Dr. Selvi Kara
Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Bryn Mawr College

One of the central problems in commutative algebra concerns understanding the structure of an ideal in a polynomial ring. Abstractly, an ideal’s structure can be expressed through an object called its minimal resolution, but there is no explicit method to obtain a minimal resolution in general, even for the simpler and fundamental class known as monomial ideals.

In this talk, we will focus on resolutions of monomial ideals. In particular, I will introduce a new combinatorial method that provides a resolution of any monomial ideal using tools from discrete Morse theory.
