Mondays 2:30 PM to
3:30 in Malott 206

Topics of interest are discrete geometry and algebraic combinatorics, including the geometry and combinatorics of polyhedra, enumeration in partially ordered sets and triangulations, matroid theory, the theory of rigid and flexible frameworks, tilings, packing, and graph theory.
