Speaker: Stefan van Zwam, Louisiana State University

Place: Rome 459
Abstract: A general theme in matroid structure theory is that highly connected matroids exhibit more structure than matroids with low-order separations. We will discuss several examples of this phenomenon, as well as an application to the theory of error-correcting codes.
