Our seminar views algebraic combinatorics broadly, explicitly including algebraic enumeration and related asymptotic and bijective combinatorics, as well as algebraic combinatorics as it appears in pure algebra and in applications outside mathematics.
Our local audience consists principally of combinatorics faculty and grad students. Talks are 50 minutes with 10 minutes for questions.
Organizers: Olya Mandelshtam and Tim Miller
Time: Thursday afternoons Waterloo time at 1pm (unless otherwise noted)
Location: The seminar will be conducted in MC 6029 and streamed over Zoom.
