**Introduction to Twisted Commutative Algebras**

by Steven V Sam, Andrew Snowden

**Publisher**: arXiv 2012**Number of pages**: 56

**Description**:

This article is an expository account of the theory of twisted commutative algebras, which simply put, can be thought of as a theory for handling commutative algebras with large groups of linear symmetries. Examples include the coordinate rings of determinantal varieties, Segre-Veronese embeddings, and Grassmannians.
