Itaï Ben Yaacov: Baby version of the asymptotic volume estimate

HUJI Logic Seminar

Tomorrow (27/12) we will have a lecture of Itaï Ben Yaacov in Sprinzak Building, between 10:00 – 12:00, room 102.

Please forward this mail to anyone that might be interested.

Baby version of the asymptotic volume estimate

Abstract: I’ll show how the Vandermonde determinant identity allows us to

estimate the volume of certain spaces of polynomials in one variable

(or rather, of homogeneous polynomials in two variables), as the degree

goes to infinity.

I’ll explain what this is good for in the context of globally valued

fields, and, given time constraints, may give some indications on the

approach for the “real inequality” in higher projective dimension.
