## Max Glick |

I am a lecturer in the mathematics department at Ohio State University. I was a postdoc at University of Connecticut from 2016 to 2017, an NSF postdoc at University of Minnesota from 2013 to 2016 and a postdoc during the 2012-2013 year at MSRI and UC Berkeley. I completed my PhD in 2012 at University of Michigan under the supervision of Sergey Fomin.

I have a cv and a research statement.

My interests lie in the field of algebraic combinatorics, and more specifically, cluster algebras. I would like to better understand how cluster algebras relate to projective geometry and discrete integrable systems.

For a quick taste of my mathematical interests, take a look at the animation in slides 9 through 16 of this presentation. Trying to understand the incidence theorem in question leads in many surprisingly deep directions that have informed my work on the pentagram map and also that of my REU student (who proved that the green lines on slide 16 intersect at the center of mass of the eight vertices on slide 9).

These lecture notes are based on our presentation at the 2016 ASIDE summer school. - (Appendix) K. Baur, M. Glick, and P. Martin, The number

fibers of the Scott map on polygon tilings are the flip
equivalence classes, arXiv:1601.05080.

This was my first foray into pure enumerative combinatorics. We counted the number of polygonal tilings of a convex n-gon up to flip equivalence (say a diagonal in a tiling is*flippable*if it is part of two triangles and that the corresponding*flip*replaces such a diagonal with the other diagonal of the enclosing quadrilateral).

I play bridge in my free time. An article about my team back in
Michigan was written here (thanks to
Jin for supplying the file).

New Fall 2018: I am trying to get a weekly math department bridge game going. Please let me know if you are interested. We would be happy to teach you the rules, and experienced folks are also welcome.
