The matroids seminar & reading group meets 10:00--10:45 on Fridays in Van Vleck 901 in order to discuss matroids from a variety of viewpoints. In particular, we aim to

  • survey open conjectures and recent work in the area
  • compute many interesting examples
  • discover concrete applications

We are happy to have new leaders of the discussion, and the wide range of topics to which matroids are related mean that each week is a great chance for a new participant to drop in!

To help develop an inclusive environment, a subset of the organizers will be available before the talk in the ninth floor lounge to informally discuss background material e.g., "What is a variety?" (this is especially for those coming from an outside area).
