Algebraic Topology and Matchings in Hypergraphs

Algebraic topology has shown to be a powerful toolbox for solving graph theoretical problems. However, many of the techniques used to solve matching-related problems in graphs do not easily carry over to the case of hypergraphs. In this talk, I am going to show some applications of these algebraic topological techniques for matching-related problems in hypergraphs.
