DIMACS - Graduate Student Combinatorics Seminar

Title: The Fourier Transform and Enumeration

Speaker: Kellen Myers, Rutgers University

Date: Wednesday, September 15, 2010 12:10pm

Location: Graduate Student Lounge, 7th Floor, Hill Center, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


This talk will provide a brief and gentle introduction into applications of the Fourier transform to enumerative problems. Some definitions and explanations will be provided, leading to comparisons between elementary enumeration techniques (that is, counting) and the techniques using the Fourier transform.

Lunch will be provided.
