Final Mathematics Colloquium Series Talk of the Semester: “Invariant Subspaces and Their Invariants” Apr. 28

The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Division of Math, Science, and Technology will conclude this year’s Mathematics Colloquium Series with a guest lecture titled, “Invariant Subspaces and Their Invariants,” led by Markus Schmidmeier, Ph.D., associate professor at Florida Atlantic University. The event will take place on Apr. 28, from 12 – 1 p.m. in the Mailman-Hollywood Building, room 309. All NSU students, faculty and staff members are welcome to attend.

About the topic:
Subspaces of vector spaces that are invariant under the action of a linear operator have garnered a lot of interest since the late 19th Century. In the Jordan Normal Form Theorem, vector spaces are decomposed as a direct sum of cyclic invariant subspaces. In case the base field is finite, the invariant subspaces can be counted; one can try to classify them up to isomorphy, or study their projective variety.

In this talk, Schmidmeier will discuss combinatorial isomorphism invariants that are based on partitions.  The Klein tableaux play a particular role as they link the counting problem, the classification up to isomorphy, and the geometric approach.
