Colloquium Talk Dr. Michelle Molino: An introduction to Symmetric Determinantal Varieties

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics would like to invite graduate students as well as anyone else interested to a talk by Dr. Michelle Molino entitled An introduction to Symmetric Determinantal Varieties. The talk will take place on Monday February 3 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM and be held in Thistle room 240. Graduate students are encouraged to attend.  Note: This post has been updated to a new time and location for the talk.

In this talk, we will introduce the definition, main results, and properties of symmetric determinantal varieties. In addition, we are going to define the multiplicity of a pair of modules, and calculate such multiplicity for a special pair of modules (Jacobian and Normal modules) associated with a symmetric determinantal variety. Finally, we will show the connection between this multiplicity and the Singular Theory.
