Title: 3-Flows with large support

Abstract: We will start at the very beginning, discussing graphs and flows. We will bump into Tutte's famous flow conjectures on the way to some context for our main result, which is about 3-flows with large support. This result is recent joint work with DeVos, Pivotto, Rollova, and Samal. While we will not delve too far into the proof, we will discuss some of its key ideas, as well as highlight connections to another topic in graph theory - colouring.
