COVID-19 Update

As a result of Covid-19, the seminar for this semester will be a mix of virtual and in-person talks. The default Zoom link for the seminar is https://uwmadison.zoom.us/j/9502605167 (sometimes we will have to use a different meeting link, if Michael K cannot host that day).

Title: The Rank of Syzygies

Abstract: I will explain a notion of rank for the relations amongst the equations of a projective variety. This notion generalizes the classical notion of rank of a quadric and is just as interesting! I will spend most of the talk developing this notion but will also explain one result which tells us that, for a randomly chosen canonical curve, you expect all the linear syzygies to have the lowest possible rank. This is a sweeping generalization of old results of Andreotti-Mayer, Harris-Arbarello and Green, which tell us that canonical curves are defined by quadrics of rank four.

Michael Brown

Title: Tate resolutions as noncommutative Fourier-Mukai transforms

Abstract: This is joint work with Daniel Erman. The classical Bernstein-Gel'fand-Gel'fand (or BGG) correspondence gives an equivalence between the derived categories of a polynomial ring and an exterior algebra. It was shown by Eisenbud-Fløystad-Schreyer in 2003 that the BGG correspondence admits a geometric refinement, which sends a sheaf on projective space to a complex of modules over an exterior algebra called a Tate resolution. The goal of this talk is to reinterpret Tate resolutions as noncommutative analogues of Fourier-Mukai transforms, and to discuss some applications.
