Student Combinatorics

Location:  3866 East Hall (4:00 PM to 5:00 PM)

Title:  Lightning Talks!

Abstract:   Come hear mini-talks 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 non-negative Grassmannian.

Mia Smith: Roth's Theorem

Roth's Theorem states that any subset of the natural numbers with positive upper density will contain a 3-term arithmetic progression. Although originally proved using Fourier analytic methods, Szemer├ędi 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.
