From birational invariants to elections

Research Horizons Seminar
Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - 12:05
1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
Skiles 005
Georgia Tech
This talk will traverse several topics in singularity theory, algebraic analysis, complex analysis, algebraic geometry, and statistics. I will outline effective methods to compute the log canonical threshold, a birational invariant of an algebraic variety, as well as its potential statistical applications.
