The 28th Bay Area Discrete Math Day (BADMath Day) will take
place at Santa Clara University on Saturday, April 12, 2014. All
talks will be held in the Williman Room in Benson Center (see campus map).
BADMath Days are one-day
meetings aimed at facilitating communication between researchers and
graduate students of discrete mathematics around the San Francisco Bay
Area. These days happen twice a year and strive to create an informal
atmosphere to talk about discrete mathematics. The term "discrete
mathematics" is chosen to include at least the following topics:
Algebraic and Enumerative Combinatorics, Discrete Geometry, Graph
Theory, Coding and Design Theory, Combinatorial Aspects of
Computational Algebra and Geometry, Combinatorial Optimization,
Probabilistic Combinatorics, Combinatorial Aspects of Statistics, and
Combinatorics in Mathematical Physics.
The online registration is now closed. There may be extra meals if there are cancellations, so if you are interested but did not register before April 6, please check in with the local organizer (Rick Scott) on the day of the conference.
Lunch: Lunch will be provided on site (Williman Room Patio) with
sandwiches from Bon Appetit if you
Dinner: There will a be dinner following the conference at the Adobe Lodge on the SCU campus (for those who singed up when they registered). Dinner will be subsidized
by donations from the D.E. Shaw Group, Elsevier, and the SCU Mathematics and Computer Science Department.
Both Lunch and Dinner will be vegetarian- and vegan-friendly.
All talks will he held in the Williman Room in Benson Center.
