Two gifts from complexity theory: $P$ v. $NP$ and matrix multiplication

Tuesday, November 22, 2011 -
4:30pm to 5:30pm
I will discuss how the Geometric Complexity Theory of Mulmuley-Sohoni and the problem of determining the complexity of matrix multiplication lead to beautiful questions in algebraic geometry and representation theory.
