Shape of Associativity
Introductory Workshop: Geometric and Topological Combinatorics September 05, 2017 - September 08, 2017
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
Associativity is ubiquitous in mathematics. Unlike commutativity, its more popular cousin, associativity has for the most part taken a backseat in importance. But over the past few decades, this concept has blossomed and matured. We start with a brief look at how this has transpired, and then explore the visualization of associativity in the form of the associahedron polytope and its generalizations.
