Enumeration Through Partial Bell Polynomials

Combinatorics/Partitions Seminar

Meeting Details

For more information about this meeting, contact Matthew Katz, James Sellers, Stephanie Geyer, George Andrews.

Speaker: Mike Weiner, PSU Altoona

Abstract: We give a brief introduction to partial Bell polynomials and discuss how they can be used to enumerate trees, paths and polygon partitions. In this talk we will focus on finding the total number of colored partitions of a convex polygon by non-intersecting diagonals into convex polygons with prescribed properties. We give explicit examples and discuss how this approach uni es several known results.
