Initial degree and Waldschmidt constant of zero schemes and properties

  • Tu Chanh Nguyen The University of Danang - University of Science and Technology, Danang, Vietnam


We give a short survey about evaluation of initial degree and  Waldschmidt constant  of zero schemes  in projective space. We show main and updated results, some related conjectures and new computations of initial degree and Waldschmidt constant
