Algebra & Combinatorics Seminar

Title: Journey to the core of partitions
Speaker: Shubham Sinha (UC San Diego, USA)
Date: 01 July 2019
Time: 3:30 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department

Integer partitions have been an interesting combinatorial object for centuries but we still have a lot left to understand. In this talk we will see an uncommon way to view partitions using ‘Abaci’ and use this to illustrate partition division (defining t-cores and t-quotients of a given integer partition). I am planning to go in more detail with a special kind of partition called t-core (partitions) and discuss different ways to enumerate related objects.
