Algebra Combinatorics Reading Seminar
Day: Every Thursday
Time: 3:30-4:30 p.m.
Location: ED 4039
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 the Spring 2017 semester the theme was Combinatorics of Tropical Geometry and we mostly read through the recent textbook of Maclagan and Sturmfels. Participants also presented research papers that appealed to their particular interests, including connections to commutative algebra and economics.
