Title:  Cutting Cake with Algebraic Topology

Abstract:  A group of people want to divvy up a piece of cake "fairly". What does "fairly" mean? How do they this? What does this have to do with the Borsuk--Ulam theorem? I will try to say something about these questions, and a bit more, time permitting.

Speaker: Vladimir Retakh

Title: Introduction to Noncommutative Birational Geometry

Abstract:  I will discuss several phenomena related to noncommutative triangulations of surfaces.

 This seminar is in conjunction with Graduate Algebra and Representation Theory Seminar (GARTS))
