PLACE | Room 403, Center for Mathematical Challenges (CMC)
ABSTRACT | In this talk I will introduce two results (joint works with Filip Cools, University of Leuven) based on tropical techniques for the study of phylogenetic inference. In particular I will show a complete description, in term of tropical equations, of space of m-dissimilarity tensors (which arise naturally in the study of DNA chains) and a further results on graphs of genus 1 which represent, in biology, particular cases of speciation.
