The Apprenticeship Program in Commutative Algebra is a workshop for senior graduate students, postdocs, and other earlycareer researchers. From January 2024, 2025, small groups of participants will be guided by senior mentors to tackle a researchlevel problem in commutative algebra or a related field. The ultimate aim of the Apprenticeship Program is to demonstrate the process of creating an original research publication, including generating ideas, proving theorems, and writing up results. In addition, attendees will be able to participate in professional development activities during the week. Groups will continue working together after the weeklong program concludes in order to complete their research projects.
Application process and deadline: Anyone who is interested in participating in the program must complete the online application form (for both participation and funding) by August 15, 2024. Please note that there is limited space in the program.
Decisions: We have reviewed all applications and have finalized the list of applicants who will receive funding. Please note that only those who were selected will be contacted by October 7, 2024. We thank you all for your interest.
Mentors and research topics:
The dth Veronese subring of a standard graded polynomial ring S is the ring generated by all the monomials of S of degree d. In this setting, Veronese subrings enjoy exceptionally beautiful properties: for example, they are CohenMacaulay and Koszul. What features do the semigroup rings generated by all monomials of degree d of a nonstandard graded polynomial ring possess? We will try to answer this question with regard to properties of interest to the participants in the group.
