Open Neighborhood Seminar

The next talk in the Open Neighborhood seminar will be Monday, April 1 at 4:30 p.m. in SC 507, with snacks to follow in the common room. Our speaker will be John Mackey (Carnegie Mellon): Title: Tournaments having the most cycles Abstract: In celebration of March Madness, we will consider the problem of maximizing the number of cycles in round robin tournaments. A round robin tournament is a set of matches in which each contestant plays all other contestants. A cycle is a sequence of contestants, each beating the one that follows it, with the last beating the first. This problem is about three-fourths solved. Open problems and connections with the zeta function will be discussed. Also, GIIM is hosting a talk by Eunice Kim (Tufts) titled "Dynamical Systems and Physical Phenomena" this Thursday, March 28 at 4:30 p.m. in SC Hall E.
