Computational Algebra Seminar: Kasprzyk -- Classifying toric log Del Pezzo surfaces

Speaker: Alexander Kasprzyk (Kent)
Title: Classifying toric log Del Pezzo surfaces with the aid of a computer
Time & Place: 3-4pm, Thursday 19 Feb, Carslaw 535

In a recent work with Max Kreuzer and Benjamin Nill, techniques for
classifying all toric log Del Pezzo surfaces up to some arbitrary index
