'''Monday, October 15, 2007''':  Abstract: A "combinatorial algebra" is an algebra over a ring whose module basis is indexed by a class of combintorial objects with multiplication on basis elements typically determined by some combinatorial operation. Some examples of combinatorial algebras include the symmetric group algebra of order n (indexed by permutations of size n), the algebra of Schubert polynomials (indexed by permutations), partition algebras (indexed by set partitions satisfying certain constraints), and the symmetric function algebra (indexed by integer partitions). In this talk, I will go over support for combinatorial algebras in SAGE with an emphasis on symmetric functions, some issues that have arisen in their implementation, and things still left to do. }}}

'''Monday, November 19, 2007''':  Abstract: What the heck is an abelian variety? Elliptic curves are the 1dimensional abelian varieties. What are they in general? Maybe something like an abelian group and an algebraic variety? A complex torus is a complex manifold which is diffeomorphic to an ntorus. All such structures can be obtained as a quotient of CC^n by a lattice, and this procedure gives us a compact complex manifold. For n=1, this is an elliptic curve. For n >= 1, any variety structure on a complex torus must be unique, and Riemann proved that there is such a variety structure if and only if the torus can be embedded in complex projective space. More specifically, CC^n/L is an abelian variety if and only if there is a positive definite Hermitian form whose imaginary part takes integral values on L.
