Title: Somos Sequences in Context

Speaker: **Michael Somos**, Georgetown University

Date: Thursday, April 5, 2007 5:00pm

Location: Hill Center, Room 705, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ

Abstract:

Somos sequences form a small part of the Elliptic Realm. How do they relate to other parts? How unexpected are they? How could they be discovered? What is their natural point of view? Are they related to classical recurrence sequences? I will answer these questions as time permits.
