Combinatorics and Algebra Seminar-The Sticky Matroid Conjecture

Title: The Sticky Matroid Conjecture

Speaker: Jaeho Shin, Korean Institute for Advanced Study
Date and time: Wednesday, July 6, 3-4 pm
Place: Phillips 736

Abstract: We show Kantor's conjecture (1974) holds in rank 4. This proves both the sticky matroid conjecture of Poljak and Turzík (1982) and the whole Kantor's conjecture, due to an argument of Bachem, Kern, and Bonin, and an equivalence argument of Hochstättler and Wilhelmi, respectively.
