Syzygies are among the most important, useful, and beautiful objects in algebra. After this talk, you’ll have a feel for what they are and what they can do. Ignite talks are fast-paced: 20 slides at 15 seconds each

Just about everyone agrees that partisan gerrymandering is unfair; arguments center around how to detect it and whether there are other gerrymanders (racial, ethnic, socioeconomic) that we should be looking for, too. We will examine several mathematical criteria and metrics for fair districting that have been, are being, and will be discussed in legislatures and courts across the country.
