Dr. Werner Krandick Lecture: Dr. Doron Zeilberger on "Refined Counting of Binary Trees"

Monday, May 20, 2024

11:00 AM-12:00 PM

The Department of Computer Science at Drexel's College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) presents the Dr. Werner Krandick Lecture featuring Doron Zeilberger, PhD, distinguished professor of mathematics of the Department of Mathematics at Rutgers University - New Brunswick.

Lecture Title: "Refined Counting of Binary Trees (Inspired by Werner Krandick)"

This free event is open to the Drexel University community. No registration is necessary.

Talk Abstract:

The number of (full) binary trees with n internal vertices is famously the Catalan number (2n)!/(n!(n+1!). Twenty years ago, Werner Krandick published a combinatorial gem investigating certain "jump" statistics on such trees, and related them to trees that occur in real root isolation. In this talk, Zeilberger will illustrate the power of symbolic computation (so dear to Krandick) to expand on this theme.
