Log-concavity and cross product conjecture in order theory

Swee Hong Chan (Rutgers)

Location:  Hill Center Room 705
Date & time: Monday, 24 October 2022 at 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Abstract: The study of log-concave inequalities has played a central role in the study of the order theory. One such inequality is Stanley's inequality, which asserts the log-concavity of the sequence \((N_k)\) of the number of linear extensions of partial order for which the rank of a fixed element x is equal to k. In this talk we will discuss various generalizations of these results together with related open problems. This talk is joint work with Igor Pak and Greta Panova, and is intended for the general audience.
