Sarah Rees (Newcastle, Maths): Rewriting in Artin groups

Time and Location:

13:00 in E360 (Durham)

see also http://community.dur.ac.uk/algorithms.complexity/seminars.html

Abstract:

This is about the word problem in Artin groups.

For a group G = < X | R > defined (presented) by finite sets of generators and relations, the word problem is soluble if there is an algorithm which, given a word over X (ie string over X and its set of formal inverses) can decide whether or not w represents the identity element.

David Cushing (Durham, Maths): Ollivier-Ricci idleness functions of graphs

Time and Location:

13:00 in CM101 (Durham)

see also http://community.dur.ac.uk/algorithms.complexity/seminars.html

Abstract:

Ricci curvature plays a very important role in the study of Riemannian manifolds. In the discrete setting of graphs, there is very active recent research on various types of Ricci curvature notions and their applications.
