Description:
Title: Modifications of Sarkaria’s technique for Tverberg-type problems

Abstract:


Tverberg’s theorem is a central result in combinatorial geometry. During this talk we will discuss a linear-algebraic proof method by Sarkaria, and how to modify it to obtain meaningful variations of Tverberg’s theorem. We will also talk about variations of Tverberg’s theorem which are (currently) out of reach with Sarkaria’s technique. No prior knowledge of the subject will be assumed.
