3-Manifold Seminar: Growth of chromatic polynomials of planar triangulations and Tits' alternative for linear semigroups

Seminar | March 7 | 3:40-5 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall

 Ian Agol, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

I'll discuss an answer to a question posed by Treumann and Zaslow on mathoverflow regarding the growth of the number of chromatic polynomials of planar triangulations based on a version of Tits' alternative for linear semigroups. We'll discuss some generalities, then give a fairly explicit example (joint with Slava Krushkal). http://mathoverflow.net/a/262904/1345
