Noetherian operators are differential operators that encode primary components of a polynomial ideal. We develop a framework, as well as algorithms, for computing Noetherian operators with local dual spaces, both symbolically and numerically. For a primary ideal, such operators provide an alternative representation to one given by a set of generators. This description fits well with numerical algebraic geometry, taking a step toward the goal of numerical primary decomposition. This is joint work with Justin Chen, Robert Krone and Anton Leykin.

Abstract: In this talk we introduce basic definitions in tropical convexity, and give an overview of some of the main results. The focus will then shift to joint work with Faye Pasley Simon and Sara Lamboglia on the interaction between tropical and ordinary convex hull. We will introduce results including the characterization of tropically convex polyhedra and give a lower bound on the degree of a fan tropical curve using only tropical techniques. The talk will conclude with some more recent results and several open questions.

The definition of hyperbolic polynomials stems from stable polynomials, with many interesting properties related to convex geometry and optimization, including the construction of hyperbolicity cone. We will discuss some of these results and mention the application to locally PSD matrices.

We have seen that Hankel index of varieties can be controlled by some invariants such as $$N_{2,p}$$ or p-base point free property. Also, we know that the Hankel index of (a linear join of) variety of minimal degree is infinity (and all invariant above are same as infinity). As next case, I will share some computations of invariants on a variety that projecting rational normal curve away from a point (which is a variety of almost minimal degree).

The dual of the cone of non-negative quadratics (on a variety) is included in the dual of the cone of sums of squares. Moreover, all (points which span) extreme rays of the dual cone of non-negative quadratics is point evaluations on real points of the variety. Therefore, we are interested in extreme rays of the dual cone of sums of squares which do not come from point evaluations. The dual cone of sums of squares on a variety is called the Hankel spectrahetron and the smallest rank of extreme rays which do not come from point evaluations is called Hankel index of the variety. In this talk, I will introduce some algebraic (or geometric) properties which control the Hankel index of varieties and compute the Hankel index of rational curves obtained by projecting rational normal curve away from a point (which has almost minimal degree).

Noetherian operators are a set of differential operators that encode the scheme structure of a primary ideal. We propose a framework for studying primary ideals numerically by using a combination of witness sets and Noetherian operators. We will also present a method for computing Noetherian operators using numerical data. 

The first step in the theory of Noetherian operators are the Macaulay dual spaces. Indeed, for an ideal that is primary over a maximal ideal corresponding to a rational point, the generators of the dual space are a valid set of Noetherian operators. We will start by presenting basic ideas, results and algorithms in the classical dual space theory, and then revisit some of these ideas in the context of Noetherian operators.
