Undergraduate Colloquium: Combinatorial Enumeration in Pascal's Triangle

Friday, February 17, 2017
4:00 PM  to 5:00 PM

227  Herman Brown Hall
Rice University
6100 Main St
Houston, Texas, USA

Combinatorics is the branch of mathematics that deals with questions of enumeration. We will use Pascal’s Triangle to generate conjectures of certain combinatorial identities, and we will give combinatorial proofs of (some of) these conjectures. The talk will introduce an applications of involutions, i.e., functions which are their own inverse, and Fibonacci numbers will make a guest appearance.
