Karin Baur: Interactions between Algebra and Geometry - Pure Mathematics Colloquium
|Starts:||15:00 28 Feb 2020|
|Ends:||16:00 28 Feb 2020|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Organiser:||Department of Mathematics|
|Who is it for:||University staff, External researchers|
Algebra, Geometry and Combinatorics are closely linked. Starting from classical theorems by Pythagoras and Ptolemy we will discuss the combinatorics of triangulations of surfaces. This yields a beautiful approach to cluster algebras, a young and thriving research area with links to various fields in Mathematics. Of particular interest are approaches to Grassmannian cluster algebras with their impact on representation theory.
There will be coffee before the talk, and a reception with snacks and drinks after the colloquium.
