Seminar on Applied Algebra and Geometry

Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Room 2-105

 Speaker: Heather Harrington, Oxford University

 Title: Computational algebraic geometry for topological data analysis
 Abstract: I will present how computational algebra can be used to study problems arising in topological data analysis. I will motivate each of these problems using applications. Specifically I will discuss two ongoing projects, one using numerical algebraic geometry to sample points on real algebraic varieties. The other project proposes new interpretable invariants for multi-parameter persistent homology using computational commutative algebra.
