Fundamental Homomorphism Theorem for Impartial Combinatorial Games

Date: Feburary 28 and March 7, 2023

Speaker: Dana Ernst (NAU)

Abstract: The aim of this talk is to formalize some folklore from combinatorial game theory and to introduce a result that we can think of as the First Isomorphism Theorem for impartial games. All welcome!

Chromatic numbers of graphs and “quantum” relaxations of these quantities

Date: February 21, 2023

Speaker: Samuel Harris (NAU)

Abstract: As the title suggests, I’ll present on the chromatic numbers of graphs and quantum relaxations of these quantities. All welcome!

Codelassification of circle bundles over the two-dimensional sphere

Date: January 31 and February 7, 2023

Speaker: Michael Falk (NAU)

Abstract: I’ll present the classification of circle bundles over the two-dimensional sphere, with an ensuing discussion of the sheaves of local sections of complex line bundles over the complex projective line. All welcome!
