Title: Models of Matroids

Abstract:

Matroids are known for having many equivalent cryptomorphic definitions, each offering a different perspective. A similar phenomenon holds in the algebraic geometric approach to them. We will discuss different ways of viewing matroids, motivated by group actions, intersection theory, and K-theory, each of which has been generalized from the realizable case to a purely combinatorial approach.
