- Algebra Seminar: 12:30, SH 235. Lance Miller, University of Arkansas: Singularities of Rees-like Algebras. Abstract: The Eisenbud-Goto conjecture was recently settled in the negative by the introduction of a new construction, the Rees-like algebra by McCullough and Peeva. All counter examples so far have been singular. In this talk, we discuss what singularities arise in this construction and give an explicit decomposition of the singular locus.
