The geometry of scheduling

Geometric and topological combinatorics: Modern techniques and methods October 09, 2017 - October 13, 2017

Speaker(s): Caroline Klivans (Brown University)
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
  • Geometric combinatorics

Primary Mathematics Subject Classification
Secondary Mathematics Subject Classification No Secondary AMS MSC



By considering a simple form of a scheduling problem, we explore the geometric combinatorics behind a host of polynomial counting functions. Along the way we will encounter Coxeter complexes, quasisymmetric functions, inside out polytopes, Hilbert series, h-vectors and other favorites of the audience
