Math Colloquium: Eric Hogle '05, Gonzaga University

Homotopy, polytopes and parking - 

There’s a surprising connection between the way topologists consider a sequence of loops to be essentially the same and the way that a parking lot fills up if everybody has a favorite parking spot. Bridging this gap is a family of geometric objects called associahedra. This talk will assume no prior knowledge.
