Mathematics Program presents
Adinkras for Combinatorialists
A lecture by Yan Zhang, University of California, Berkeley
Thursday, March 13, 2014
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.
