Welcome to the home page of the Mathematics Graduate Student Organization (MGSO) at Texas A&M University in College Station. The purpose of this organization is to encourage communication among students, faculty, and staff, and contribute to a rich social life in the department through cultural and scientific dialogue. We would also like to provide an environment where students in the mathematics department can practice their presentation skills as well as view the techniques of others. It is our goal to be a source of support and information for all graduate students.
The main activity of the MGSO is the Graduate Student Seminar. This seminar is for grad students, (largely) by grad students: Volunteer to give a talk!
Seminar: Fall 2015, Thursdays, Blocker 506A, 4:00-4:50 PM
Speaker: David Carroll
Title: Some graph-theoretic properties of right-angled Artin groups
Time / Date: 4:00 - 5:00 , September 3
"Right-angled Artin group" is a long-winded name for a straightforward concept. In this talk I'll show how to define a RAAG using an undirected graph and derive some structural and computational properties from the graph. I'll assume only basic knowledge of group theory. This is a joint work with Ben Francisco and Zoran Sunik.
