Title: (NONSTANDARD TIME) Strength of polynomials
Abstract: This talk is about the strength of homogeneous polynomials. The strength is a subadditive invariant determined by the convention that a nonzero polynomial has strength 1 exactly when it is reducible. This invariant has been defined by Ananyan and Hochster in their paper proving Stillman's conjecture and has appeared in various works since.
- Why look at the strength of polynomials?
- How do you compute it?
- Is bounded strength a closed condition?
- What is the strength of a generic polynomial?
I will answer some of these questions.
