A categorical realization of the cut and flow lattices of graphs

Speaker: Zsuzsanna Dancso, MSRI

I will introduce some fundamental concepts of lattice theory and explain why we expect them to appear naturally on a homological algebra level. We will discuss the example of the cut and flow lattices of a graph, and a categorical realization which serves as an example for lifting lattice theoretic concepts as mentioned above. We end with a number of open questions and possible applications. Joint work with Anthony Licata.
