SUMMARY:Math Seminar Series
DESCRIPTION:
Colloquium\n
\n
John Lesieutre from Penn State University
will be speaking.\n
\n
The topic of the
colloquium is "Polynomial interpolation is
harder than it sounds."\n
\n
This colloquium takes
place online.\n
\n
The description is:\n
Suppose
that (x1,y1),...,(xr,yr) is a set of points
in the plane. Given a degree \n
d and multiplicities
mi, does there a nonzero polynomial
in two variables of degree at most d which
vanishes to order at least mi at(xi,yi)? What
is the dimension of the space of such polynomials,
and how does it vary with the parameters?
I will explain some of the basic results
and conjectures and show how this problem is
connected to some questions of current interest
in algebraic geometry.\n\n
