Topology Seminar

Title: Iterated traces
Speaker: Kate Ponto
Speaker Info: University of Kentucky
Brief Description:
Special Note:

The trace of a matrix does not seem like an operation that should be iterated, but if we step back and think of trace as an operation on endomorphisms (or almost endomorphisms) that is invariant under cyclic permutation this becomes more plausible. I'll make sense of iterated traces in significant generality, describe independence of order for iterated traces, and connect this result to (disguised) examples that have appeared in the literature.
