# Combinatorial Aspects of Commutative Algebra

Share this page *Edited by *
*Viviana Ene; Ezra Miller*

This volume contains the proceedings of the
Exploratory Workshop on Combinatorial Commutative Algebra and Computer
Algebra, which took place in Mangalia, Romania on May 29–31, 2008. It
includes research papers and surveys reflecting some of the current
trends in the development of combinatorial commutative algebra and
related fields.

This volume focuses on the presentation of the newest research
results in minimal resolutions of polynomial ideals (combinatorial
techniques and applications), Stanley-Reisner theory and Alexander
duality, and applications of commutative algebra and of combinatorial
and computational techniques in algebraic geometry and topology. Both
the algebraic and combinatorial perspectives are well represented and
some open problems in the above directions have been included.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in combinatorial commutative algebra and applications.
