Title: Z-graded noncommutative algebraic geometry


In commutative algebra, there is a rich interplay between
ring theory and algebraic geometry. As noncommutative rings are a
larger class of rings than commutative ones, they are less well
understood. In this talk, we give an overview of the techniques of
noncommutative algebraic geometry and then focus on the study of
Z-graded noncommutative rings. This talk includes work in progress
that is joint with Jason Gaddis and Calum Spicer.
