Combinatorial Fixed Point Theorems

Francis Su*, Harvey Mudd College (Faculty)
Talk Abstract: 
The Brouwer fixed point theorem and the Borsuk-Ulam theorem are beautiful and well-known theorems of topology that admit combinatorial analogues: Sperner's lemma and Tucker's lemma. In this talk, I will trace recent connections and generalizations of these combinatorial theorems, including applications to the social sciences. Some of this work includes research with undergraduates.
