24 October 2013: my paper with Eggermont on the existence of poly-time membership tests for a wide class of phylogenetic models has just been accepted for J. Eur. Math. Soc.
1 May 2013: my paper with Kuhnt and Zwiernik on groups acting on Gaussian graphical models has just been accepted for Annals of Statistics.
Spring 2013: Robert
Krone from GeorgiaTech is visiting for three months. Together with
Eggermont we aim to prove finiteness-up-to-symmetry results for
certain infinite-dimensional toric varieties.
15 October 2012: the website of the CIME/CIRM course Combinatorial
Algebraic Geometry, taking place from 10-15 June 2013 in Levico Terme,
is up. Check it out!
1 September 2012: Emil Horobeţ from Babes-Bolyai university joins the group on the project Tensors of Bounded Rank.
23 January 2012: Tensors of Bounded Rank, an NWO free competition Ph.D. project proposal together with Monique Laurent and Siep Weiland has been awarded funding!
23 January 2012: Piotr Zwiernik is starting a Post-doc in the Vidi project.
1 September 2011: Rob Eggermont started his Ph.D. in the Vidi project.
2 March 2011: a manuscript with Johan P. de Jong on his Bachelor's
project has been accepted for publication in the EMS Newsletter. See this page.
6 October 2010: A Vidi grant!

This course is taught for the sixth time in Spring 2012,
de Weger and myself. See also the course
information and Benne de Weger's
page. Also, I'll put things on Oase.
My half of the course concerns computations in polynomial
rings. This fits well with Benne's topic (algorithmic number theory),
and also connects very well with research done in the group of Discrete Algebra and Geometry.
My half of the course requires
There will be weekly hand-in homework (for which some of the exercises
are from the book above) and an oral final exam (for both halfs simultaneously).
- a copy of the lecture notes (in Dutch);
- hand-outs that I will put on the oase page;
- for background material: access to the book Ideals,
varieties, and algorithms which you can find in the TU/e
- Mathematica running on your laptop.
