DAMUT lunchbag colloquium

Our mathematics department organizes the monthly DAMUT lunchbag colloquium from 12:45 till 13:35 in room RA 1501 (Ravelijn). ! Ordered lunchbags will be provided 10 minutes before a talk starts !

Organisers: Alexander SkopalikChristoph Brune and Stephan van Gils

The organisers invite high-profile speakers. The talks are aimed at a broad mathematically inclined audience including master students. Topics include, but are not limited to, new developments in various fields of mathematics, impact and applications of mathematical research, addressing the overview of current state of the art and open problems.
If you will be giving a talk in the colloquium, please take some time to read the guidelines for speakers .

Upcoming dates:

20 November 2019: Volker Kaibel (University Magdeburg)

TITLE: Projections in Combinatorial Optimization


Formulating problems via linear inequalities and projections is at the heart of the polyhedral combinatorics approach to Combinatorial Optimization. We present some xamples for which this can be achieved with surprisingly few inequalities and we give an almost pictorial proof showing that for other problems exponentially many inequalities are required.
