TITLE: Rank 2 Non-commutative Laurent Phenomenon and Positivity
ABSTRACT Rank 2 cluster algebras are defined recursively using a pair of binomial exchange relations. In this talk I will generalize this construction in two directions. I will work in the fully non-commutative setting and consider polynomial generalizations of the exchange relations. I will present a combinatorial description of the resulting "cluster variables" which establishes a Laurent phenomenon and positivity for certain polynomial exchanges.
