05/07/22: Math Café #3: Prep for Dr. Pin's Talk with Max von Hippel

Boston Computation Club

May 7, 2022

54 minutes

Plagiarizing Wikipedia: "Jean-Éric Pin is a French mathematician and theoretical computer scientist known for his contributions to the algebraic automata theory and semigroup theory."  He will also be our featured guest in a week, presenting The Generalized Star Height Problem.  In advance of his talk, he requested that the audience familiarize themselves with some basic mathematical definitions, such as "monoid" and "completion of a metric space".  To which end, I prepared a presentation, went through some light-weight peer review with random friends from the PL group at Northeastern, and then delivered this talk.  This is a fun little review on various useful topics in math, and also, a good refresher if you intend to attend Dr. Pin's talk.  I hope you enjoy!
