BAD Math Day XXV

The 25th Bay Area Discrete Math Day (BADMath Day) will take place at Saint Mary's College of California on Saturday, November 17, 2012 between 9 AM and 5 PM. All talks will be held in the Hagerty Lounge, in De LaSalle Hall.

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.
