New invariants for incidence structuresSpeaker: Vladimir Tonchev Affiliation: Michigan Technological University Room: Mathematics and Computer Building (MC) 5158
New isomorphism invariants for incidence structures based on a connection between trace codes and Galois geometry are discussed. Using these invariants, a new Hamada type characterization of the classical finite geometry designs is proved.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
