Professor Sweta Suryanarayan will give a math talk on this topic.
The Grassmannian Gr(k,n) is the set of all k dimensional subspaces of n-dimensional complex vector space. Vast research has been conducted in understanding the Grassmannian as it has a very rich topological, geometrical and combinatorial structure. In this talk I will introduce how I use “the Node-firing game” in studying the Grassmannian. I will also introduce you to a current research problem that I am working on.
The talk is aimed at a general audience. All of the terms used above will be defined in the talk.
