Sacramento State University Math Colloquium
Date of Presentation
Have you ever been working in one area of math, and another area arises unexpectedly? While working on a problem in 2008, we inadvertently discovered some trigonometric identities. This talk will explain fusion algebras, which are relatively simple algebraic objects that demonstrate nice algebraic applications of linear algebra. Then we will see how trigonometry can arise in even this most algebraic of settings.
