Title: Watson-Crick pairing for RNA and Milnor's link invariants
Speaker: Dr. Siddhartha Gadgil, IISc
Date: 22 January 2008
Time: 4:00 p. m.
Venue: Lecture Hall III, Dept. of Mathematics

We study the secondary structure of RNA determined by Watson-Crick pairing without pseudo-knots using Milnor invariants of links. We focus on the first non-trivial invariant, which can be interpreted in terms of the Heisenberg group as well as lattice paths, which we call the Heisenberg invariant.
