Combinatorial Algebraic Topology and its Applications to Permutation Patterns

Jason Smith (University of Strathclyde)

Combinatorial algebraic topology is the application of topological methods to combinatorial structures, such as graphs and posets. By representing these structures as simplicial complexes we can study their topology, which can be used to determine certain properties of the underlying structure. In this talk I will give an introduction to the different complexes that can be constructed from graphs and posets, and some of the tools that can be used to study these. I will also present some applications of these tools focusing on the permutation poset.
