Abstract:   The Hilbert polynomial is an invariant which measures the size of a graded ideal in a polynomial ring: in particular, it gives the dimension and the multiplicity of the variety defined by a prime ideal. The Hilbert scheme (introduced by Grothendieck) parameterizes subschemes of Pr with a fixed Hilbert polynomial. This talk will discuss properties of Hilbert schemes related to exterior algebras or toric varieties.
