2020 Combinatorial Algebra Meets Algebraic Combinatorics

  • Start Date: 01/24/2020
  • End Date: 01/26/2020

Dalhousie University


"Combinatorial Algebra meets Algebraic Combinatorics" (CAAC) is a series of annual workshops that has been meeting since 2004. The main achievement of these meetings is the establishment of an ongoing dialogue between two separate research groups who had previously been using different techniques to study similar mathematical problems.


These include among others:


(1) the representation theory of quivers (also known as directed graphs);

(2) combinatorial Hopf algebras, which refers to a Hopf algebraic structure related to (quasi)symmetric functions, permutations, trees, and other combinatorial objects; and

(3) edge ideals, a monomial ideal one can associate to a simple graph,
and use the algebraic invariants of the ideal to describe the graph, and vice versa.
