Daniel Corey, Zoom (Link To Be Emailed to Math-Gad): Initial degenerations, tropicalization, and matroids
Wednesday, September 30, 2020, 06:00pm - 07:00pm
I will introduce the notions of initial degenerations, tropicalization, and matroids, in preparation for my talk "Initial degenerations of Grassmannians." The Back Porch seminar is a seminar in which speakers give an introductory talk on their research area before their talk in the geometry seminar (which, before Covid, was often held on someone's back porch). The talks are largely informal and are intended to bridge the gap for beginning graduate students from the basics of geometry to the speaker's research area.
