Laplace Equations and the Weak Lefschetz Property
We prove that $r$ independent homogeneous polynomials of the same degree $d$ become dependent when restricted to any hyperplane if and only if their inverse system parameterizes a variety whose $(d-1)$-osculating spaces have dimension smaller than expected. This gives an equivalence between an algebraic notion (called Weak Lefschetz Property) and a differential geometric notion, concerning varieties which satisfy certain Laplace equations. In the toric case, some relevant examples are classified and as byproduct we provide counterexamples to Ilardi's conjecture.

Keywords:osculating space, weak Lefschetz property, Laplace equations, toric threefold

About the Defectivity of Certain Segre--Veronese Varieties
We study the regularity of the higher secant varieties of $\PP^1\times \PP^n$, embedded with divisors of type $(d,2)$ and $(d,3)$. We produce, for the highest defective cases, a ``determinantal'' equation of the secant variety. As a corollary, we prove that the Veronese triple embedding of $\PP^n$ is not Grassmann defective.

Keywords:Waring problem, Segre--Veronese embedding, secant variety, Grassmann defectivity

Apolar Schemes of Algebraic Forms
This is a note on the classical Waring's problem for algebraic forms. Fix integers $(n,d,r,s)$, and let $\Lambda$ be a general $r$-dimensional subspace of degree $d$ homogeneous polynomials in $n+1$ variables. Let $\mathcal{A}$ denote the variety of $s$-sided polar polyhedra of $\Lambda$. We carry out a case-by-case study of the structure of $\mathcal{A}$ for several specific values of $(n,d,r,s)$. In the first batch of examples, $\mathcal{A}$ is shown to be a rational variety. In the second batch, $\mathcal{A}$ is a finite set of which we calculate the cardinality.}

Quasi-Homogeneous Linear Systems on $\mathbb{P}^2$ with Base Points of Multiplicity $5$
In this paper we consider linear systems of $\mathbb{P}^2$ with all but one of the base points of multiplicity $5$. We give an explicit way to evaluate the dimensions of such systems.
