**Pfaffian representations of quintics**:
It is known that a general quintic (homogeneous form of degree
five) in five variables can be expressed as the Pfaffian of a
skew-symmetric matrix in only finitely many ways upto equivalence. I will discuss attempts at finding this number. This is joint work with A.
Prabhakar Rao.
