Project Details


This is a project to support a three-day commutative algebra conference at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), May 7-9, 2005. The main goals of this conference will be to help recent

Ph.D.s and graduate students in the field to meet experienced researchers, to learn

about recent developments in commutative algebra, to exchange ideas with one another,

and to develop collaborations for future research. The primary topics will be aspects

of representation theory, homological algebra, computational algebra and ideal theory

that interact with commutative algebra. Speakers will be invited to discuss connections

among these topics.

We seek support primarily for a target group of participants: those who are recent

Ph.D.s, graduate students or women, as well as faculty from under-represented groups or

primarily teaching institutions. Most of the talks will be accessible to graduate students

and will demonstrate the main problems and techniques in the discipline.

Over the last fifteen years there has been intense and ground-breaking activity in commutative algebra, activity which has been rapidly transforming

the field. There is also extensive interaction with researchers in areas as diverse as

algebraic geometry, coding theory, combinatorics, homotopy theory, K-theory, and rep-

resentation theory. The proposed gathering will provide an opportunity for algebraists

to interact and establish research connections with each other; in particular the targeted

participants will benefit from the interaction and from seeing recent developments in the

field and its relationships with other areas.
