Computational complexity and 3-manifolds and zombiesStudent-Run Applied & Math Seminar
|Speaker: ||Eric Samperton|
|Location: ||2112 MSB|
|Start time: ||Fri, Apr 3 2015, 12:10PM|
I'll give a brief introduction to the theory of computational complexity, review some results about the computational complexity of problems in 3-manifold topology, and state and outline a proof of a new joint result with my advisor, Greg Kuperberg. I hope to cover much more ground than I did in a similarly titled talk given at the student-run seminar a few weeks ago. In particular, there should be even more topology.
