Title: [N choose k] equals [N choose N-k]


We will develop a deeper understanding of this standard binomial identity.
Over the last few years this has lead to a series of advances in representation theory, algebraic geometry and quantum topology. We survey some of these results while explaining how they are all tied together.

Wednesday, September 6, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.

Tea will be served at 4:00 p.m.
