Date: 2 February 2017 Location: Hempfield High School, Room 213 Speaker: Henry Chan, Franklin & Marshall College Title: To Finiteness and Below Abstract. The study of "finite spaces" is an interesting branch of algebraic topology and combinatorics. The goal of this talk is to introduce the theory of finite spaces, and eventually on "covering finite spaces", which is a past REU project with Adele Padgett (now a graduate student at UC Berkeley).
