Title: The Hilbert Scheme of points on a surface and a related combinatorial problem

Abstract: We will introduce the idea of a Hilbert scheme, and in particular the Hilbert scheme of points on a surface. We will also briefly discuss a problem about the ‘limits of multiple points’, which is most properly expressed as the closure of a certain locus in the Hilbert scheme of points.
