**About the Potts model and some of its combinatorial relations**

Friday, September 17, 2010, 2:30pm

Ungar Building Room 402

**Abstract:** I will be discussing how the Potts model is defined in statistical mechanics and some combinatorial relations derived from its definition. The talk aims to be essentially combinatorial but will borrow some terminology from fundamental concepts in physics. The discussion in this talk is due to Alan D. Sokal and can be found in his paper.
