A Geometric Approach to Complexity Theory

22 Oct
Tuesday, 10/22/2019 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Computer Science Building Room 140
Theory Seminar
Speaker: Patrick Lei

Geometric complexity theory, introduced by Ketan Mulmuley, relates complexity-theoretic problems to problems in representation theory and algebraic geometry. We present the basic ideas of GCT and discuss relationships to interesting problems in mathematics.

We broadly follow Mulmuley's articles that are available at gct.cs.uchicago.edu.
