Event Title

Arithmagons

Description

Arithmagons are polygonal graphs whose vertices and edges are numbered by natural numbers in such a way that the product of the labels of two adjacent vertices equals the label on the edge that connects them. During the talk, Franco will briefly explore the conditions for solvability. The remainder of the talk will focus on counting the number of arithmagons that can be constructed so that the multiplication of all the values on the edges equals a fixed natural number.

Presenter Bio

Jose Franco has an M.S. and Ph.D. from Baylor University and is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of North Florida. His research interests include representation theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras.
