Triangle Lectures in Combinatorics

The latest installment of the Triangle Lectures in Combinatorics Workshop meets this weekend at NC State. This NSF-supported biannual conference series was launched by Patricia Hersh of NC State in 2010 with the assistance of Scott Provan from the Department of Statistics and Operations Research at UNC and Ezra Miller of Duke University. These conferences, which have also been held at Carolina and Duke, facilitate interactions not only between combinatorialists from across North Carolina and national visitors, but also with other discrete mathematics interests in other departments. The Workshop was last held in Chapel Hill in Fall 2011, organized by Profs. Prakash Belkale, Robert Proctor, and Richard Rimanyi from the Department of Mathematics, and Profs. Gabor Pataki and Scott Provan from the Department of Statistics and Operations Research.
