Rutgers Discrete Mathematics Seminar

Title: Equivariant topology methods and the colored Tverberg problem

Speaker: Benjamin Matschke, IAS

Date: Tuesday, November 15, 2011 2:00pm

Location: Hill Center, Room 425, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


The first part of this talk will be a quick survey on equivariant topology methods and how to use them in discrete geometry and combinatorics. The second part is about a particular application, the colored Tverberg problem, which is joint work with Pavle Blagojevic and GŁnter Ziegler.
