Determinantal Varieties

  • Joe Harris
Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics book series (GTM, volume 133)


In this lecture we will introduce a large and important class of varieties, those whose equations take the form of the minors of a matrix. We will see that many of the varieties we have looked at so far—Veronese varieties, Segre varieties, rational normal scrolls, for example — are determinantal.
