Mathematics Program presents

Scissors, Glue, and First-order Logic with Parity Quantifiers

Thursday, February 21, 2013

A lecture by
Amanda Redlich
Candidate for the position in Mathematics

When is it possible to glue two graphs together? When is it possible to slice a large graph? What does "first-order logic with parity quantifiers" mean, and what does it have to do with gluing and cutting graphs? In this talk I will answer all four of these questions. No previous knowledge of parity, first-order logic, graphs, scissors, or glue will be assumed.
