**Professor Hal Schenck**

Abstract:** **This talk will give an overview of the spectacular success of algebraic methods in studying problems in discrete geometry and combinatorics. First, we'll discuss the face vector (number of vertices, edges, etc.) of a convex polytope and recall Euler's famous formula for polytopes of dimension 3. Then, we'll discuss graded rings, focusing on polynomial rings and quotients. Associated with a simplicial polytope P (every face is "like" a triangle) is a graded ring called the Stanley-Reisner ring, which "remembers" everything about P and gives a beautiful algebra/combinatorics dictionary. I will sketch Stanley's solution to a famous conjecture using this machinery and touch on connections between P and objects from algebraic geometry (toric varieties). No prior knowledge of the terms above will be assumed or needed for the talk.

Speaker: **Professor Emeritus Frank Uhlig** (Auburn)

Title: Hands-on inverted teaching of Lesson Plans 3 - 5, in class study of Matrix Theory and Matrix Computations

**From Professor Uhlig: ** read page 15 with an intro and questions before "class" on Wednesday. This is necessary for inversely taught classes; it is homework for Wednesday!

Especially important is the last questionnaire page. I will have 50 printed in the office (thanks!) before my talk and bring them to ACLC 010 myself.

Of course we will read/look at some of the Lesson Plans as well directly on-line if that is possible.
