Love a good problem?  Like to solve difficult puzzles?
Join professors, graduate students and undergraduates as we tackle problems presented from several mathematical journals.  An interest in higher level mathematics is all that is required to join our round table.  Offer what you know, learn what you don't in a relaxed environment with some of our department's finest!

This year Problem Solvers is joining together with both GRE Prep and the Putnam Practice sessions.  We will start by discussing Putnam and GRE caliber questions, and  move into open questions from the American Mathematical Monthly Problems and Solutions.  Stop on by, learn a little, and contribute your two cents worth!

Algebra Combinatorics Reading Seminar

The Algebraic Combinatorics Reading Seminar meets about once a week.  The format is very informal, the idea is that we collectively select a topic for the semester and present material surround that theme.  Original research is not typically presented and we encourage participation from all levels. Graduate students with an interest in algebra/combinatorics are especially encouraged to attend.  In Fall 2017 we studied concepts and constructions involved in the recent proof of the Rota-Welsh conjecture given by Adiprasito-Huh-Katz.  This included matroid theory, characteristic polynomials, toric varieties, intersection theory (and connections among all these).  This semester we have a couple of outside speakers including Jesus De Loera and Art Duval. The theme is a bit less focused but topics include random constructions in combinatorics (including monomial ideals and permutations), chordal graphs and complexes, and algebraic statistics.

Ellen Robinson, 512.245.4757
Campus Sponsor:
Mathematics



Talk Math 2 Me is a seminar for students by students. Talk Math 2 Me provides students, both graduate and undergraduate, an opportunity to present anything related to mathematics to an audience of their peers. Undergraduate and Graduate math students or any students interested in mathematics are highly encouraged to attend. The talks are each 15‐60 minutes long and possible speaking topics include Undergraduate and Graduate mathematics research, math history, and STEM research with a heavy footing in mathematics. By presenting, students gain great experience communicating mathematics while developing presentation skills in a relaxed environment. By attending the seminar, students will be introduced to new mathematics and see applications of mathematical concepts in different perspectives. Some weeks will even include visits from professors to discuss how students can get involved with research and the math department.

Weyl groups, Schubert Varieties and Hyperplane Arrangements


All faculty, graduate students, and upper level undergraduate students are welcome. The seminar will provide a platform for faculty and students to present their research developments in discrete mathematics and related areas, foster research interactions among faculty and students, and create research opportunities and collaborations for faculty and students. Speakers from Discrete Mathematics, Combinatorics, Computer Science, and other related areas are all welcome. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary research which applies mathematics as a tool to solve problems in other areas such as CS, BioInformatics, Bio‐sciences, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, etc.
