3:45PM: Tensor complexesDaniel ErmanThe EagonNorthcott complex is a free resolution built from a matrix (i.e. a 2tensor). I will discuss how to take an arbitrary higher tensor and build a number of free resolutions from that tensor. Our construction generalizes the construction of the EagonNorthcott complex, and we can describe the resulting free resolutions quite explicitly. This is joint work with Berkesch, Kummini, and Sam.

5:00PM: Maximal Minors and Leading TermsAdam BoocherIn this talk I'll follow a paper by Sturmfels and Zelevinsky concerning the maximal minors of a matrix. By studying a certain Newton polytope, I'll describe how they were able to combinatorially answer the question of whether the maximal minors form a universal Groebner basis.}
