I’m speaking tomorrow in the AMS Current Events Bulletin about the work of Adiprasito, Huh, and Katz on the Rota-Welsh conjecture and Hodge theory for matroids. See this previous post for an introduction to their work. [*Note added 9/21/17*: My write-up for the Current Events Bulletin can be found here.]

Here’s an excerpt from the last section of my slides which I may or may not have time to discuss in tomorrow’s talk. It concerns this recent paper of June Huh and Botong Wang. (*Note added*: As anticipated I did not have time to cover this material! Here are the slides themselves: ceb_talk)
