## Student/Postdoc Working Geometry Seminar

**Date: ** November 27, 2023

**Time: ** 4:00PM - 5:30PM

**Location: ** BLOC 628

**Speaker: **JM Landsberg, TAMU

**Title: ***How to get rid of uninvited guests? or Why I am trying to learn commutative algebra*

**Abstract: **Progress on classical questions in linear algebra and complexity theory had been blocked for some time. Machinery from algebraic geometry has led to recent breakthroughs and points to further breakthroughs. I will give a broad overview and then specialize to a specific question that will be one of the main topics of the working seminar in the spring.
