Research Interests

Commutative Algebra

Prof. Katz' research interests lie primarily in the field of commutative algebra with tangential interests in homological algebra, algebraic geometry, and computational algebra. Among the topics he is particularly interested in are the asymptotic theory of ideals, multiplicity theory, Rees algebras of ideals and modules, and homological problems in mixed characteristic.
