Math/Stats Colloquium: Cory Colbert

Tue, October 19, 2021 • 4:00pm - 5:00pm (1h) • CMC 306

Speaker: Cory Colbert (Washington and Lee University)

Title: Complete Sequences

Abstract: A sequence of positive integers is said to be complete if every positive integer can be expressed as a sum of distinct terms from that sequence. We explore some examples complete sequences and show a neat criterion due to J. L. Brown for detecting completeness. Time-permitting, we'll make connections to Ostrowski decompositions and other topics. This talk is geared towards undergraduates with an introductory or developing background in mathematics.
