Title: Cluster structures for Grassmannians
by Karin Baur (University of Leeds) as part of Copenhagen-Jerusalem Combinatorics Seminar

Interactive livestream: https://ucph-ku.zoom.us/j/69204766431?pwd=bCtTczMzVEg2cG03cldKVjdvS09UUT09

Abstract
The category of Cohen Macaulay modules over a quotient of a preprojective algebra is a cluster category associated to the coordinate ring of the Grassmannian Gr(k,n). We study this category and describe some of its indecomposable modules. We also explain how one can associate frieze patterns to them.

Title: Cluster structures on braid varieties
by Eugene Gorsky (UC Davis) as part of UCLA Combinatorics Seminar

Lecture held in MS 7608.

Abstract
Given a positive braid, one can define a smooth affine algebraic variety called the braid variety. Braid varieties generalize several important varieties in Lie theory such as open Richardson and positroid varieties. I will construct a cluster structure on a braid variety of arbitrary type using combinatorial objects called weaves. This is a joint work with Roger Casals, Mikhail Gorsky, Ian Le, Linhui Shen and Jose Simental.

9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
[gt.go] - Smaller Universal Graphs for Caterpillars and Graphs of Bounded Path-Width by Cyril Gavoille

/Exposé en français/Talk in french / English slides / transparents en anglais

In this talk, I will given a rather simple construction of a graph U n with at most 8n vertices with the property that every n-vertex caterpillar is isomorphic to some induced-subgraph of U n . Previous constructions of so-called induced-universal graph for caterpillars used 256n vertices in the best (Bonichon et al. SIROCCO’06 and Alstrup et al. FOCS’15).

Then, I will also present an extension to path-width-p graphs with an induced-universal graph of n.2 O(p) vertices. This is complemented with a n.2 Ω(p) lower bound. With bounded path-width graphs, our construction considerably enlarge the family of n-vertex graphs having an induced-universal graph of O(n) vertices, which is optimal. Such unexpected property was known only for trees, bounded maximum degree outerplanar graphs and maximum degree-2 graphs.

The extended result is obtained from an algorithmic approach by designing an adjacency labeling scheme for these graphs using log(n) + O(p) bit vertex labels and with a constant time adjacency test.

This is a joint with Arnaud Labourel.

Title: The primitive Eulerian polynomial
by Jose Bastidas (LACIM) as part of CRM-Séminaire du LACIM

Abstract
We introduce the Primitive Eulerian polynomial $P_\mathcal{A}(z)$ of a central hyperplane Arrangement $\mathcal{A}$. It is a reparametrization of the cocharacteristic polynomial of the arrangement. Previous work (2021) implicitly showed that this polynomial has nonnegative coefficients in the simplicial case. If $\mathcal{A}$ is the arrangement corresponding to a Coxeter group $W$ of type A or B, then $P_\mathcal{A}(z)$ is the generating function for the (flag)excedance statistic on a particular subset of $W$. No interpretation was found for reflection arrangements of type D.

We present an alternative geometric and combinatorial interpretation for the coefficients of $P_\mathcal{A}(z)$ for all simplicial arrangements $\mathcal{A}$. For reflection arrangements of types A, B, and D, we find recursive formulas that mirror those for the Eulerian polynomial of the corresponding type. We also present real-rootedness results and conjectures for $P_\mathcal{A}(z)$. This is joint work with Christophe Hohlweg and Franco Saliola.
