Mathematical Sciences Departmental Seminar

These Departmental Seminars are for everyone interested in Maths. We encourage anyone interested in the subject in general, or in the particular subject of the seminar, to come along. It's a great opportunity to meet people in the Maths Department and join in with our community. 

Refreshments are shared in the Department (STEM 5.1) after every seminar.

Classification of (m,k)-special cyclic presentations

Dr Ihechukwu Chinyere

In mathematics a group presentation is a method of defining a group. This definition is up to isomorphism and in general it does not reveal much of the properties of the group. For some natural numbers m>1 and k>2 a presentation is said to be (m,k)-special if it's star-graph is the incidence graph of a generalized m-gon. It turns out groups defined by such a presentation has some interesting properties.

In this talk Dr Chinyere will explain in details the concept of (m,k)-special presentations, define a more general concept as well as provide a classification result on this notion for cyclic presentations.
