Pierpaola Santarsiero (MPI MiS, Leipzig): The geometry of geometries: Matroid theory, old and new
Ort: MPI für Mathematik in den Naturwissenschaften Leipzig, Inselstr. 22, E1 05 (Leibniz-Saal)
This lecture is based on Federico Ardila's preprint "The geometry of geometries: matroid theory, old and new" (https://arxiv.org/pdf/2111.08726.pdf). After reviewing basic definitions related to matroids, in this talk we introduce some key invariants of a matroid and we discuss recent achievements of matroid's theory. This is a preparatory lecture for the ICM talk of Federico Ardila.
