Algebraic geometry has long been a central subject within mathematics, enjoying deep and substantial connections to other parts of mathematics. In particular, the interplay between algebraic geometry and algebraic combinatorics has led to many important developments in these and other mathematical fields. The last fifteen years have seen an explosion of interest in algebraic varieties with rich combinatorial structures: Schubert geometry of flag varieties and their subvarieties, degeneracy
loci, toric varieties, moduli spaces and Gromov-Witten theory, and varieties with group actions. Powerful tools from algebraic topology, combinatorics, commutative and computational algebra, complex and symplectic geometry, and representation theory have been developed to study such objects. In this workshop, we will present the state of the art in combinatorial, enumerative, and toric algebraic geometry. We will highlight this part of modern algebraic geometry within the context of the broader parent program at MSRI, and convey its scope to young researchers.
