2013 Tutorials in the
Pingree Park mountain campus of Colorado State
29-31 July 2013
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
Two tutorials on hot topics related to the SIAM
AG13 conference at Colorado State University:
Participants will need to choose which tutorial they would like to attend, as they will run concurrently.
- TORIC GEOMETRY - SESSION FULL: REGISTRATION CLOSED
(College of the Holy Cross),
(University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign)
No class of algebraic geometric objects is more widespread in applications than are
This ubiquity allows methods from algebraic geometry to be applied in many different
areas, and it allows the transfer of methods and ideas between different application
Participants will become familiar with some of the fundamental and elementary aspects of
toric varieties and their relation to geometric combinatorics.
They will also see how they arise in coding theory and in geometric modeling.
- NUMERICAL ALGEBRAIC GEOMETRY - SESSION FULL: REGISTRATION CLOSED
Frank Sottile (Texas A&M University),
Jonathan Hauenstein (North Carolina State University)
With the increasing parallelism of computers, the future of solving polynomial systems
lies in algorithms that exploit this parallelism.
The parallelizable algorithms underlying numerical algebraic geometry have the potential
to revolutionize computation in algebraic geometry and are already finding use in many applications.
Participants will install and use Bertini, gain an understanding of
the basic algorithms in numerical algebraic geometry, and gain
experience working on one or more real-world applications (including
those provided by the attendees). This tutorial will be accessible to
those who wish to solve polynomial systems but possibly have little or
no experience with algebraic geometry.
Monday, July 29 - Wednesday, July 31, with SIAM AG13 beginning Thursday, August 1 in Fort Collins
Participants should plan to arrive at Denver International Airport on the morning of Monday, July 29, in order to catch a 60-90 minute shuttle (SuperShuttle or GreenRide) to Fort Collins,
arriving in Fort Collins NO LATER than 5 p.m. Participants will
need to make shuttle reservations themselves, though exact details about where in
Fort Collins to meet will be sent later (so please don't book the shuttle yet). Please note that the shuttles from
the airport leave approximately hourly.
A bus departing around 5 p.m. will then take all participants 90 minutes up into the mountains, to the Pingree Park mountain campus.
A bus will also bring participants back down to the Fort Collins campus on Wednesday evening, in preparation for AG13.
Pingree Park mountain campus of Colorado State University. In a secluded Rocky mountain valley at 9,000 feet, about 90 minutes outside of Fort Collins, Colorado.

This program is being run by
Dan Bates (Colorado State
Frank Sottile (Texas A&M University),
with the assistance of the facilitators listed above and the support of the
CSU Department of Mathematics.
Funds for this meeting have been requested from the U.S. National Science Foundation, but no funding is guaranteed. Participants should plan to cover their own travel expenses. Lodging expenses will be in the vicinity of $300/person (total), to be confirmed shortly, including a double room (shared with one roommate), all meals, and travel from and to Fort Collins.
We hope to cover some or all of the lodging costs and reimburse some or all travel costs, but this depends on the availability of funding.
Once we have confirmation on external funding, we will set up a website (if necessary) where lodging expenses can be paid.
We have reached our maximum occupancy, and registration is now closed.
Please contact Dan Bates (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Frank Sottile (email@example.com) with any questions.
