Andrew Chan (Warwick) Gröbner bases have several nice properties that mean that certain problems in algebraic geometry can be reduced to the construction of a Gröbner basis. For example Gröbner bases allows us to easily determine whether a polynomial lives in some ideal, find the solutions to systems of polynomial equations, as well as having applications in robotics. In this talk I shall introduce Gröbner bases and see the problems that arise when trying to adapt this theory to polynomial rings over fields with valuations. We shall discuss how these Gröbner bases are interesting to algebraic geometers and how they have important applications to tropical geometry.

Crepant resolutions and quiver algebras Superpotential algebras from three-fold singularities. The orbifold X = C^3 / Z_3 is a simple but interesting example of a (non-compact) Calabi-Yau threefold. Physicists predict that type II string theory on X reduces in the low-energy limit to a gauge theory, which is described by a quiver and a superpotential. We'll discuss how these objects arise mathematically.

Michael Selig (Warwick University) We use the following well-known graded ring construction: given a polarised variety (X,D), under certain assumptions the graded ring R(X,D) = ⊕ _{n≥0}H^{0}(X,nD) gives an embedding XProj(R(X,D)) ∈ wℙ. It is well known that the numerical data of (X,D) is encoded in the Hilbert series P_{X}(t) := ∑ _{n≥0}h^{0}(X,nD)t^{n}. We aim to break down the Hilbert series into terms associated to the orbifold loci of X. The talk should be fairly introductory. I will explain the ideas behind the work from scratch, exhibit some results in 3-D and explain some ideas for the 4-D case.

Tom Sutherland (University of Oxford) Affine cubic surfaces and cluster varieties In this talk we will consider affine cubic surfaces obtained as the complement of three lines in a cubic surface where it intersects a tritangent plane. We will interpret certain families of these affine cubic surfaces as moduli spaces of local systems on the punctured Riemann sphere. We will see how to draw quivers on the sphere so that the associated cluster variety is related to the total space of these families.
