The Bay Area Discrete Math Day, SPRING 2001
The Second BADMath Day will take place at San Francisco State University, April 14,
2001. As the
First BADMath Day, this one-day meeting hopes to facilitate the
between researchers and graduate students of discrete mathematics around
the San Francisco bay area. BADMath Days happen semi-annually where
we create a fairly informal atmosphere to talk about discrete
term ``discrete mathematics''
is chosen to include at least the following topics:
Algebraic and Enumerative Combinatorics, Discrete
Geometry, Graph Theory, Coding and Design Theory, Combinatorial
Aspects of Computational Algebra and Geometry, Combinatorial Optimization,
Probabilistic Combinatorics, Combinatorics in Mathematical Physics, etc.
The Second BADMath Day will be held in the Blakeslee Room
on the top floor of Thurnton Hall, the building where
the Mathematics Department is. The Math department is on the ninth
floor of the building and you need to take the elevator to this
floor, and then walk one flight up to Blakeslee Room. There will
be clearly marked signs on the day of the meeting.
Andrei Okounkov from UC
from Technische Universität Berlin agreed to give one-hour talks.
The complete program of the meeting is below.
You can also read the abstracts in postcript
or in pdf format.
