Triangles and Suicidal Clowns

Friday, November 9, 2012, 3:45pm
Ungar Building Room 402


Abstract:What do the trangulations of regular polygons and a clown on a cliff with a death wish have in common? This talk will be an introductory survey into Catalan numbers, a deep topic in combinatorics. We will examine many Catalan objects, their recursive properties and try to determine a closed formula.
