The Canonical Element Conjecture, Direct Summand Conjecture and Improved New Intersection Conjecture date back about 40 years, to the early 1970s. There has been much literature concerning them. The idea of the project will be to study some of the literature, and to look at a new approach to these conjectures using smash nilpotence.
