Title: Tight triangulated manifolds
Speaker: Bhaskar Bagchi (ISI, Bangalore)
Date: 14 February 2014
Time: 3:30 – 4:30 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department

Wolfgang Kuhnel introduced the notion of tightness and conjectured that all tight triangulations of closed manifolds are strongly minimal. In a recent paper with B. Datta (European J. Comb. 36 (2014), 294–313), the speaker obtained a very general combinatorial criterion for tightness and found results in partial confirmation of this conjecture. We shall discuss these results.
