Collatz Polynomials: an introduction with bounds on their zeros
Matthew Hohertz, Rutgers University
Location: Hill 705
Date & time: Thursday, 20 February 2020 at 5:00PM - 6:00PM
Abstract: In this talk we consider Collatz polynomials. In particular, we bound the moduli of the roots of these polynomials using a determinantal approach, prove theorems on when these polynomials have rational integer roots, and suggest further applications and avenues of research.
