ALGEBRA SEMINAR - Jaiung Jun (SUNY Binghamton)

Speaker: 
Jaiung Jun (SUNY Binghamton)
Topic: 
Algebraic Geometry in Characteristic One

Abstract: We review some basic ideas and motivations of algebraic geometry in characteristic one (aka F_1 geometry). We will focus on geometric aspects of three different algebraic objects; monoids, semirings, and rather exotic structure called hyperrings. If time permits, we also review how these objects are related to the recent branch of algebraic geometry (tropical geometry).
