"  Some graph-theoretic properties of right-angled Artin groups "
  David Carroll  


"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.
