Abstract as follows: This talk is a gentle introduction to connections between algebra and geometry to non-mathematicians. Algebra and geometry are related in numerous ways but we will mainly focus on relations prevalent in the field of algebraic geometry, a field which overlaps with many parts of mathematics and also mathematical physics. The main distinguishing feature of algebraic geometry is that nearly everything is constructed using polynomial equations.
