Commutative Algebra Geometric, Homological, Combinatorial and Computational Aspects
Packed with contributions from international experts, Commutative Algebra: Geometric, Homological, Combinatorial, and Computational Aspects features new research results that borrow methods from neighboring fields such as combinatorics, homological algebra, polyhedral geometry, symbolic computation, and topology. This book consists of articles presented during two conferences held in Spain and Portugal in June, 2003. It encompasses a variety of topics, including blowup algebras, Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity, integral closure and normality, Koszul homology, liaison theory, multiplicities, polarization, and reductions of ideals. This comprehensive volume will stimulate further research in the field.
