    Colloquium - Geometric combinatorics: an intro to Ehrhart theory
    11th Floor Lecture Hall
    • Andres Vindas Melendez, University of California, Berkeley
    Abstract
    Geometric combinatorics is an area of mathematics concerned with counting properties of geometric objects described by a finite set of building blocks. Polytopes are geometric objects that can be formed by taking the convex hull of finitely many points. When extracting combinatorial information from geometric objects, a natural approach is to subdivide the combinatorial object into smaller, more accessible pieces. In the case of polytopes a natural approach is to triangulate the polytope into simplices or parallelepipeds. The Ehrhart polynomial of a lattice polytope P encodes the number of integer lattice points in dilates of P, and the h*-polynomial of P is the numerator of the accompanying generating function. In this talk I will present background on polytopes, lattice-point enumeration, and share my favorite family of polytopes. I will conclude the talk with some open problems.

    Pattern avoidance in Parking Functions
    Virtual
    • Virtual Speaker
    • Ayo Adeniran, Colby College
    Abstract
    Parking functions have been well-studied in combinatorics. We extend the classical definition of patterns in permutations to parking functions. In particular, we study parking functions that avoid permutations of length 3. A number of well-known combinatorial sequences arise in our analysis, and this talk will highlight several enumeration results and conjectures. This project is joint work with Lara Pudwell(Valparaiso U.)
