We are testing a new system for linking grants to scientists.
The funding information displayed below comes from the
NIH Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools and the
NSF Award Database.
The grant data on this page is limited to grants awarded in the United States and is thus partial. It can nonetheless be used to understand how funding patterns influence mentorship networks and viceversa, which has deep implications on how research is done.

Mathematical Sciences: Conference On Operators and Function Theory: the Role of De Branges's Spaces; April 1315, 1989; Fayetteville, Arkansas
This project will support the Conference on Operators and Function Theory: The Role of de Branges's Space to be held April 1315, 1989 at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas. The focus of the conference will be a series of five lectures by Professor Donald Sarason on the interplay between operator theory and onedimensional complex function theory. There will also be a series of ten fortyminute talks given by other speakers on the topic of the conference. Publication of Professor Sarason's lectures in book form is planned.

Mathematical Sciences: Conference of Determinantal Ideals and Representation Theory; April 1820, 1991, University of Arkansas
The study of determinantal ideals has a long history in mathematics; in algebra, analysis and geometry. In particular, the study of generic matrices plays a central role in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry. The search over the past thirty years for a universal resolution of the ideal generated by the minors of order p of the m x n generic matrix has been intimately linked with the representation theory of the general linear group. This grant will partially support a conference devoted to the subject of determinantal ideals and representation theory, to be held April 1820, 1991 at the University of Arkansas. The principal lecturer will be David Buchsbaum from Brandeis University. The effectiveness of the conference also depends on the supporting speakers who will give shorter talks, and on the presence of young researchers and graduate students.

Lattice Polytopes With a View Toward Algebraic Geometry @ Case Western Reserve University
The PI pursues the systematic study of lattice polytopes with an emphasis on applications in neighboring areas, in particular, in toric geometry. The first project focuses on conjectures and relations to algebraic geometry and geometry of numbers that arise in the study of Ehrhart polynomials, which count the number of lattice points in integer multiples of lattice polytopes. Recently, an Ehrharttheoretic invariant (the degree of the h*polynomial) has opened up a refined way of looking at lattice polytopes without interior lattice points. The PI investigates the relations to other invariants such as the degree of the Adiscriminant, the spectral value or the nef value of a polarized toric variety and explores possible generalizations beyond the realm of lattice polytopes. The goal of the second project is to enhance our understanding of reflexive and Gorenstein polytopes that play a crucial role in the BatyrevBorisov construction of families of mirrorsymmetric CalabiYau varieties. Here, one invariant of specific interest is the stringy Epolynomial of a Gorenstein polytope. A significant part of this research is also concerned with obtaining classification results in order to check conjectures and to search for counterexamples.
The theory of lattice polytopes lies at the intersection of algebraic, convex and discrete geometry, optimization and the geometry of numbers. The definition of a lattice polytope is extraordinarily simple: it is the convex hull of finitely many points in a lattice. Because of their elementary nature, these convexgeometric objects are ubiquitous in various disguises throughout pure and applied mathematics, and they provide fertile ground for interdisciplinary research. Most prominently, lattice polytopes provide an explicit, combinatorial approach to higherdimensional algebraic varieties, called toric varieties. This interaction has proven to be successful for algebraic geometry as well as for polyhedral combinatorics and has unexpected applications in other areas, notably in string theory. The PI studies open questions on lattice polytopes motivated from these different viewpoints. The fascination of lattice polytopes lies also in the fact that many problems can be formulated in an elementary way and are well suited for computational approaches which makes the area attractive to students. One component of this project is to finish writing a book on lattice polytopes with Christian Haase and Andreas Paffenholz that will make it as easy as possible for students to get into contact with current research topics.
