Combinatorics Seminar – Oct 29, 2021

29 October 2021, 2:30pm, Zoom Speaker: Marcelo Sales (Emory)Title: ‘Ramsey and Density Results for Approximate Arithmetic Progressions’ Abstract: Let AP_k = {a,a+d,…,a+(k−1)d} be an arithmetic progression of length k. For a given ε > 0, we call a set AP_k(ε) = {x0,…,xk−1} an ε-approximate arithmetic progression of length k if for some a and d, |xi −(a+id)|<εd...


Rings and Modules Seminar – Oct. 19

19 October 2021, 2:40 pm, Zoom Speaker: Ranganathan Padmanabhan (University of Manitoba)Title: ‘Hungtington Varieties’ Abstract: A variety KK of lattices is called Huntington if every uniquely complemented lattice in KK is distributive. In 1904, E.V. Huntington conjectured that every uniquely complemented lattice was distributive. In fact, the conjecture had been verified for several special classes of lattices. However, in 1945, Dilworth...
