CalTitle1: Algebra Seminar: Britz -- Codes, matroids, designs, and graphs - and big polynomials

Auth: anthonyh@asti.maths.usyd.edu.au

Matroids are combinatorial objects that generalise mathematical objects
from linear algebra, graph theory, matching theory, and many other areas.
In this talk, I will present several ways in which classical results from coding theory may be generalized with respect to matroids, and I will explain why such generalizations are interesting. Designs, graphs, and some big polynomials will be making guest appearances. The talk is intended for a general audience. After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.
