Interpolation problems for curves in projective space

Isabel Vogt (Brown)

Location:  Zoom
Date & time: Wednesday, 19 October 2022 at 3:30PM - 4:30PM

Abstract: The interpolation problem is one of the oldest in mathematics.  In its most broad form it asks: when can a curve of a given type be passed through a given number of general points?  I'll survey work on the interpolation problem from Euclid to the modern day, ending with recent joint work of mine with Eric Larson that completely solves this problem for general curves.
