Chip-firing Games and Riemann-Roch Theory for Graphs
A "divisor" on a graph is simply a configuration of dollars (integer numbers) on its vertices. In each step of a "chip-firing game" you are allowed to select a vertex and then lend one dollar to each of its neighbors, or borrow one dollar from each of its neighbors.  The mathematica structure arising from this process is very rich and beautiful.  For example, this process produces a canonical abelian group whose size is the number of spanning trees of the graph.  Moreover, in this setting, there is an analogue of the classical "Riemann-Roch theorem". This talk is mostly expository, so it will be self-contained and aimed at a general mathematical audience.
