Algebraic Geometry is the study of the qualitative properties of geometric forms defined by polynomial equations. David Eisenbud's work is mostly on the algebraic side of this theory: commutative algebra. He is also very interested in symbolic computation, which gives the possibility of making experiments with algebro-geometric objects. Other occasional research interests on which he has published include statistics, knot theory, and juggling.
