Survey Article: A tour of the weak and strong Lefschetz properties
An artinian graded algebra, $A$, is said to have the weak Lefschetz property (WLP) if multiplication by a general linear form has maximal rank in every degree. A vast quantity of work has been done studying and applying this property, touching on numerous and diverse areas of algebraic geometry, commutative algebra and combinatorics. Amazingly, though, much of this work has a ``common ancestor" in a theorem originally due to Stanley, although subsequently reproved by others. In this paper we describe the different directions in which research has moved starting with this theorem, and we discuss some of the open questions that continue to motivate current research.
