Research Expertise and Interest
mathematics, algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, computation
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.
