Atlantic Graph Theory Seminar: Dr. Hugh Thomas, UQAM
January 20, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Dynamical algebraic combinatorics and independence sets of graphs
Dynamical algebraic combinatorics is a relatively new (and fun!) topic, which looks at cyclic group actions on objects from algebraic combinatorics, inspired by some questions coming from dynamical systems. I will give an introduction to the area, focusing on an action I have defined with Nathan Williams on the independent sets of a graph (arXiv:1805.00815). We also construct a partial order on the set of independent sets of a graph, which may be of independent interest.
The Atlantic Graph Theory Seminar series will take place every Wednesday from 3:30-4:30 ADT online via zoom. The talks, provided by researchers, postdocs and graduate students, will be on a variety of current topics in graph theory. If you would like to give a talk or attend, please email one of the organizers (Jason Brown and Danielle Cox).
