Challenges in Mathematics Colloquium Lecture Series

On Friday, November 16, 2018, at 4:00 –5:20 p.m. in WB 3, Dr. Raymond Paulino will hold a lecture titled:

Groups, Rings, and Things: Minimal Reductions

"Abstract Algebra is a branch of Mathematics that started out from solving equations in the 1800s, and now has many applications. I first introduce the star of Abstract Algebra known as a Group and give a brief sample of Group examples. Then I move to realm of Commutative Algebra. I will introduce the notion of a Ring and, in particular, Ideals, Noetherian Rings and Cohen-Macaulay Rings. Finally, I will discuss some of my results on Minimal Reductions of Edge Ideals."

The Challenges in Mathematics Colloquium Lecture Series is organized by the Division of Mathematical Sciences of the Colleges of Natural and Applied Sciences of the University of Guam. Our location is at the Division of Mathematical Sciences in Warehouse B, next to the Health-Science Building. Our intention is to introduce a wider audience of those who are interested in mathematical challenges into state-of-the-art mathematical theories, puzzles and open problems. We invite students, colleagues working in any area of science and everybody who wants to learn more about mathematics in an accessible setting.

Everybody is welcome!
