Seminar in Cluster algebras

  •  Beyond Aztec Castles and from Dungeons to Dragons
  •  10/24/2017
  •  10:00 AM - 10:50 AM
  •  C304 Wells Hall
  •  Gregg Musiker, University of Minnesota

In this talk I will discuss certain tessellations of the torus, known as brane tilings, and highlight how cluster algebras give rise to connections between combinatorics and physics. In particular, I will focus on algebraic and combinatorial formulas arising from quivers associated to del Pezzo surfaces and how such formulas allow us to investigate anew perfect matching problems of Propp from the turn of the century.
