In this talk, I will introduce my old(1.) and current works(2.).

1. Bounds on regularity of quadratic monomial ideals

We can understand invariants of monomial ideals by invariants of clique (or flag) complex of corresponding graphs. In particular, we can bound the Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity (which is a measure of algebraic complexity) of the ideals by bounding homol0gy of corresponding (simplicial) complex. The construction and proof of our main theorem are simple, but it provides (and improves) many new bounds of regularities of quadratic monomial ideals.

2. Pythagoras numbers on projections of Rational Normal Curves

Observe that forms of degree $2d$ are quadratic forms of degree $d$. Therefore, to study the cone of sums of squares of degree $2d$, we may study quadratic forms on Veronese embedding of degree $d$. In particular, the rank of sums of squares (of degree $2d$) can be studied via Pythagoras number (which is a classical notion) on the Veronese embedding of degree $d$. In this part, I will compute the Pythagoras number on rational normal curve (which is a veronese embedding of $\mathbb{P}^1$) and discuss about how Pythagoras numbers are changed when we take some projections away from some points.
