Symmetric Designs

Yael Davidov - Rutgers University

Location:  GSL
Date & time: Wednesday, 18 April 2018 at 12:15PM - 1:15PM

Abstract:  This talk will be about symmetric designs. Symmetric designs are mathematical objects that include but are not limited to finite projective planes and difference sets. I will define symmetric designs, give some cool examples, and provide an outline of a proof of the Bruck-Ryser-Chowla Theorem about the possible parameters of a design which uses some fun facts from algebra (quadratic forms) and number theory.
