Maciej Dunajski (Cambridge): Quartics, sextics, and beyond

Academic or specialist Colloquium / Congress / Forum

I will review the 19th century classical invariant theory of Cayley and Sylvester, and present a solution of an outstanding open problem concerning binary sextics. Both the subject and the problem are elementary - the talk should be accessible to undergraduate maths or physics students. This is joint work with Roger Penrose.
