Title: Syzygies of algebraic varieties

Abstract: The embedding of a projective variety in projective space can be described as the common zero locus of homogeneous polynomials in a polynomial ring. I will introduce Green's property $N_p$ and the Koszul property for embeddings of projective varieties, and present some results for toric varieties, as well as for the GIT quotient of points in $\P^1$ modulo the $\SL(2,\C)$ action.
