Welcome to the home page of the Mathematics Graduate Student Organization (MGSO) at Texas A&M University in College Station. The purpose of this organization is to encourage communication among students, faculty, and staff, and contribute to a rich social life in the department through cultural and scientific dialogue. We would also like to provide an environment where students in the mathematics department can practice their presentation skills as well as view the techniques of others. It is our goal to be a source of support and information for all graduate students.
The main activity of the MGSO is the Graduate Student Seminar. This seminar is for grad students, (largely) by grad students: Volunteer to give a talk!
Seminar: Spring, Thursdays, Blocker 506A, 4:00-4:50 PM
Speaker: Yuyu Zhu
Title: Hilbert Nullstellensatz and P vs. NP
Time / Date: 4:00 - 5:00 , February 23
Hilbert Nullstellensatz is the problem of deciding if a system of polynomials with integer coefficients has a complex solution. We will explore Koiran's results on the connection between this problem and the famous P vs. NP problem under the assumption of GRH (generalized Riemann Hypothesis). We will also provide a fast algorithm to determine the satisfiability of the system and relate to number theoretical problem of short interval estimates.
