Abstract: Using a small puzzle as a motivating example, we'll explore how algebra and geometry can be used to model and solve a problem. The major players in this story are ideals, varieties, and the relationship between them. I'll describe these objects and their interplay in the course of the talk, and at the end, we'll touch on some applications of these techniques to scientific questions.
