Hyperplane arrangements "cut to the bone".

Algebra & Discrete Mathematics

Speaker: Emanuele Delucchi, MSRI
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Mon, Nov 19 2007, 4:10PM

After a brief introduction to discrete Morse theory, we will see how this technique allows us to explicitely reduce to its `bare bones'; the complement of a complexified hyperplane arrangement. The talk does not need special prerequisites: everybody is welcome!
