Macaulay2: expanded functionality and improved efficiency

September 25 to September 29, 2023

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, Pasadena, California

organized by

David Eisenbud, Claudia Polini, Claudiu Raicu, and Emily E. Witt

Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to expanding and enhancing the capabilities of the computer algebra software Macaulay2. The main topics for the workshop are:

  1. The structure of infinite resolutions in the non complete intersection case.
  2. Efficient computations of ideal quotients and residual intersections.
  3. Borel–Weil–Bott theory in characteristic $p$.
  4. Local cohomology, $b$-functions, Hodge ideals.
The workshop will bring together researchers with a solid background in both the theoretical and computational aspects of the proposed topics, with the goal of creating software packages that implement some of the recent findings, and also are suitable to assist with future research. The chosen topics are not disjoint, with many of the prospective participants working in more than one, which will encourage the cross-fertilization of ideas and techniques.
