Slides from my talk at the GSUMC: Slides


April 2008: I will be speaking about my project and results on Saturday, April 12, 2008 at the Garden State Undergraduate Math Conference.  Slides will be posted shortly, or come to the conference to see them presented :).

March 2008:  After a Fall semester hiatus, we've resumed work on the project. Details and paper to come.

Update(8/22/07): We have found patterns and have results for all simple Lie algebras!  We now know the behavior for ALL simple Lie algebras, a huge step up from the results in the slides above. Bill Cook has written a Maple program that has verified that our patterns hold.  Only proofs remain.

August 2007: Types A_1, A_2, A_3, A_4, D_4, E_8, F_4, G_2 have been worked out, and things seem messy.  See the REU Final Presentations slides posted above for more
