"Reducibility of Varieties of Commuting Matrices"
We will present some wellknown results on reducibility of the varieties C(k,n) of commuting ktuples of nxnmatrices. In particular, we will discuss the Motzkin—Taussky Theorem proving irreducibility of C(2,n) and Guralnick’s Theorem, which shows that C(3,n) is reducible when n ≥ 29.
