Title: Configurations of points and tensor analysis
Abstract: I will make an overview on the theory of secant varieties to projective varieties, starting with fundamental motivations and basic tools, and focusing on some recent developments of the theory. The general pattern shows that properties of secant varieties to X are intimately related with the geometry of its configurations of points, thus with the intrinsic geometry of the variety X. The recent awareness of strong connections between the theory of secant varieties and multilinear algebra suggests several lines of investigations which involve highly sophisticated geometric tools, and poses questions on projective loci that represent a challenge for the development of Algebraic Geometry.
