• Speaker: Dr Judy-anne Osborn, CARMA, The University of Newcastle
  • Title: A visual combinatorial interpretation of the Kolakoski density question
  • Location: Room V205, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 3:00 pm, Wed, 8th Jun 2016
  • Abstract:

    The density of 1's in the Kolakoski sequence is conjectured to be 1/2. Proving this is an open problem in number theory. I shall cast the density question as a problem in combinatorics, and give some visualisations which may suggest ways to gain further insight into the conjecture.
