Invariant Theory and classification problems

Emmanuel Briand
University of Sevilla

Algebraic Invariant Theory provides equations for the orbits under a group action and thus can be used in many classification problems. I will illustrate this with examples in several fields: curves and surfaces in computer-aided geometric design, entangled systems in quantum information theory, tensors. I will also discuss the interactions with representation theory and symmetric functions.
