Adinkras for Combinatorialists

A lecture by Yan Zhang, University of California, Berkeley

[Adinkras for Combinatorialists]
Adinkras are graphical tools created for the study of representations in supersymmetry. Besides having inherent interest for physicists, adinkras offer many easy-to-state and accessible open problems for mathematicians from different trades (by the end of the talk, I will have pretended to have known stuff about Clifford algebras, posets, coding theory, switching graphs, and algebraic topology...), but especially combinatoralists! I will include my original results, but mostly, I just want to share my enthusiasm for these pretty objects. No specialist knowledge required.
