Multigraphs to symplectic circle actions

Donghoon Jang (UIUC Math)

Abstract: Consider a symplectic circle action on a compact symplectic manifold with isolated fixed points. We can associate a directed multigraph to the manifold. Y. Karshon proved that if the dimension of the manifold is four, this multigraph completely determines the manifold up to equivariant symplectomorphism. We prove that we can associate a multigraph that does not have any loops. As an application, we complete the proof of the symplectic Petrie's conjecture for eight dimensional manifolds. This is a joint work with S. Tolman. arXiv:1408.6580.

Introduction to elimination theory and implicitization

Eliana Duarte   [email] (UIUC Math)

Abstract: In this talk I will introduce the tools from commutative algebra that allow us to approach the implicitization problem using Rees-algebra techniques. These include local cohomology, Fitting ideals, MacRae’s invariants among others. The goal is to explain the big picture of how these tools interact with each other in the context of the implicitization problem.
