Polytopal linear groups (Anton Shafarevich)

Event ended

The talk of Anton Shafarevich at the Seminar of the Laboratory on Algebraic Transformation Groups.

Let P ⊆ R^n be a lattice polytope; i.e., P is a convex hull of a finite subset of Z^n ⊆ R^n. Consider the subsemigroup S_P in Z^{n+1} generated by the set {(x; 1)| x ∈ P∩Z^n}. The polytopal algebra associated with P is the semigroup algebra k[S_P] where k is a field. The algebra k[S_P] is naturally graded by the group Z. Following the work of Winfried Bruns and Joseph Gubeladze we will give a description of the group of graded automorphisms of k[S_P].
