Recent Developments in Commutative Algebra

Scope of the special session

The aim of this special session is to disseminate recent developments in commutative algebra, to foster collaboration among the participants and to set up new directions for further investigations. We will focus, among others, on the following topics:

  • Characteristic p methods.
  • Structure of the free resolutions.
  • Hilbert functions.
  • Groebner bases and determinantal ideals.
  • Homological methods.


  • Giulio Caviglia (Purdue University, USA)
  • Joan Elias (University of Barcelona, Spain)
  • Philippe Gimenez (University of Valladolid, Spain)
  • Maria Evelina Rossi (University of Genoa, Italy) -
