Title: Lightning Talks!
Abstract: Come hear minitalks from three different speakers!
Katie Waddle: Plucker Coordinates from Planar Networks
We will see how to start with certain planar circular directed graphs and get points in the totally nonnegative Grassmannian.
Mia Smith: Roth's Theorem
Roth's Theorem states that any subset of the natural numbers with positive upper density will contain a 3term arithmetic progression. Although originally proved using Fourier analytic methods, Szemerédi reproved the theorem using graph regularity in 1978  we'll do a lightning version of that combinatorial proof.
Will Dana: Quiver Representation Categories and Convex Geometry
I'll take a whirlwind tour through the background of my research, a connection between stability conditions of quiver representations and the combinatorics of Coxeter groups.
