Mathematics, Computational, and Applied Mathematics Colloquium: Bernd Sturmfels (MPI Leipzig and UC Berkeley)

4:00–5:00 pm Jones, Room 303 (5747 S Ellis Ave)


The Grassmannian parametrizes linear subspaces of a real vector space. It is both a projective variety (via Plücker coordinates) and an affine variety (via orthogonal projections). We examine these two representations, through the lenses of linear algebra, commutative algebra, and statistics. 

This is a joint event between the mathematics colloquium and the CAM colloquium on the occasion of Sturmfels' honorary degree
