Abstract/Media

The j-multiplicity was introduced by Achiles and Manaresi in
1993 as a generalization of the Hilbert-Samuel multiplicity for arbitrary ideals in a Noetherian ring. Many of the properties and algebraic applications of the Hilbert-Samuel multiplicity of zero dimensional ideals have been extended to more general classes of ideals using the j-multiplicity.

In this talk, I will review some of these properties and applications. At the end of the talk, I will briefly discuss my current research in this area.
