Tracing a Path -- From Walks on Graphs to Invariant Theory

Thursday, March 2, 2017
  3:40–5 p.m.

Location: Surge Building 284
  Parking Information

Category: Colloquium

Description: Tea time @ 3:40 p.m.

Talk begins @ 4:10 p.m.


Molien's 1897 formula for the Poincaré series of the polynomial invariants of a finite group has given rise to many results in combinatorics, coding theory, mathematical physics, algebraic geometry, and representation theory. This talk will focus on analogues of Molien's formula for tensor invariants and will discuss various connections with representation theory, and the McKay Correspondence. The approach is via walking on graphs.
