Simons Foundation Supports Savage’s Research

Dr. Carla Savage, professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $30,000 by the Simons Foundation to support her research proposal titled “Lecture Hall Polytopes, Inversion Sequences, and Eulerian Polynomials.”
The award will run from September 1, 2012 to August 31, 2017.
Abstract – Over the past ten years, lecture hall partitions have emerged as fundamental structures in combinatorics and number theory, leading to new generalizations and new interpretations of several classical theorems. This project takes a geometric view of lecture hall partitions and uses polyhedral geometry to investigate their remarkable properties.
