Some Problems of Combinatorial Geometry
Dept. of Mathematics, GMU
Tuesday, December 4, 2001 15:00-16:00,
There are multitudes of interesting and apparently difficult
problems relating to the combinatorics of convex sets.
We discuss open questions associated with the convexity theorems of Radon
and Tverberg, and questions concerning the crossing numbers of complete
graphs and their generalizations to higher dimensions.
Some of these questions are considered in the setting provided
by oriented matroids.
