Notes on symbolic powers
english version
versión en español
versão em português
These are the most recent versions of my lecture notes on symbolic powers. I wrote these notes for the Escuela de otoño de Àlgebra Conmutativa at CIMAT in November 2019 organized by Luis NúñezBetancourt and Abraham Martín del Campo, and earlier for the RTG Advanced Minicourse in Commutative Algebra at the University of Utah in May 2018, organized by Anurag K. Singh and Srikanth B. Iyengar. The older version of my notes on symbolic powers is no longer kept updated, so I'd recommend reading the newer version above.
Here is video of a talk I gave on symbolic powers at the Fellowship of the ring, the virtual Worldwide Commutative Algebra Seminar, hosted by MSRI.
