University Seminar: Logic Across Disciplines-Gram determinants and Temperley-Lieb algebras

Logic-Topology Seminar

Title: Gram determinants and Temperley-Lieb algebras

Abstract:  I will outline research completed with my students Rhea, Dionne, and Sujoy as part of our Mathathon IV project (December 2018-May 2019). We worked on Gram type determinants motivated and applied to Knot Theory. In particular, we found the closed formula involving Chebyshev polynomials for a Gram determinant involving the trace of Temperley-Lieb algebra.
