Pure Maths Colloquium: Friezes
17 March 2014 16:00 in CM221
Friezes are sequences of positive integers satisfying some
multiplication rules. They were introduced by Conway and Coxeter in the
70's, and their very simple definition yields surprising combinatorial
properties. Their relationship with the recent theory of "cluster
algebras" has led to new insights, results and generalisations.
In this talk will appear, in undefined order (and not exclusively):
friezes, Fibonacci numbers, triangulations of polygons, linear
recurrence relations, mutations, and maybe some representations of quivers.
