Title: Can one summarize a text without reading it?

Abstract: There is an area of research that lies in the intersection of graph theory, linear algebra, probability, (discrete) stochastic processes, linguistics, literature, history and many areas in humanities.

This talk will be a leisurely excursion into this type of mathematics with examples from ongoing research. As a fun example, I will also demonstrate how one can summarize a text without actually reading it.
