[One of the greatest architects of the “geometric Risorgimento” (Coolidge 1927, 352) in Italy, Corrado Segre provides a shining example of the role of mentor in the history of mathematics. His university courses were a veritable forge for future researchers. The years between 1891 and the...
[It is well known that the construction of an identity for the Italian School of Algebraic Geometry directed by C. Segre was the result of a complex dynamic of scientific exchanges with the international mathematical community. In particular, Felix Klein was a reference interlocutor for Segre,...
[Two of C. Segre’s earliest papers, (Segre 1883a) and (Segre 1884), dealt with the classification of quadratic line complexes, a central topic in line geometry. These papers, the first written together with Gino Loria, were submitted to Felix Klein in 1883 for publication in Mathematische...
[In 1886 Corrado Segre wrote to Felix Klein about his intention to study ‘géométrie projective pure’, completing and developing the work of von Staudt. He would continue this research project throughout the whole of his scientific life. In 1889, following a suggestion of Segre, Mario Pieri...
[At the end of the 1880s, Segre guided Castelnuovo’s research towards the geometry of algebraic curves, introducing Castelnuovo, whose earlier studies had been focused on n-dimensional projective geometry, to birational geometry, which is the starting point of the Italian school of algebraic...
[Corrado is born in Saluzzo to a well-to-do Jewish family. In 1870 the family moves to Turin. His father, Abramo Segre, was an industrialist in silk production, and his mother, Estella De Benedetti, came from a cultivated family of the upper-middle class. Corrado had two brothers, Mario e Arturo.]
[This article studies algebraic elements of the Cremona group. In particular, we show that the set of all these elements is a countable union of closed subsets but it is not closed.]
[We introduce the notion of Segre function sX for a variety X embedded in a product of projective spaces and determine some initial property of sX, when X is a finite subset. We show in the last section how these properties can be used to derive results on the identifiability of specific tensors.]
[In this paper we present an effective method for linearizing rational varieties of codimension at least two under Cremona transformations, starting from a given parametrization. Using these linearizing Cremonas, we simplify the equations of secant and tangential varieties of some classical...
[We study instanton bundles on three-dimensional quadrics, paying special attention to the family of ’t Hooft bundles. We give explicit families of instanton bundles which are not ’t Hooft. In the last section we propose a generalization of an instanton bundle on odd dimensional hyperquadrics...
