 Linear Algebra Seminar Time: Apr 06, 2015 (04:00 PM) Location: Parker Hall 224 Details: Speaker: Dr. Luke Oeding Title: Equations for the Fifth Secant Variety of Segre Products of Projective Spaces Abstract:  We describe a computational proof that the fifth secant variety of the Segre product of five copies of the projective line is a codimension 2 complete intersection of equations of degree 6 and 16. Our computations rely on pseudo-randomness, and nu- merical accuracy, so parts of our proof are only valid with high probability.'' This is joint work with Steven Sam (UC Berkeley).
