Title:
Cayley-Hamilton Theorem for Mixed Discriminants

Abstract of Talk

Straubing gave a graph-theoretic proof of the Cayley-Hamilton Theorem. A readable exposition of the proof was given by Zeilberger. We first outline that proof. We then use the same technique to obtain an extension to mixed discriminants. This is joint work with Souvik Roy.
