By Renaming If Necessary

Abstract:We explain here how renaming can be insufficient. In particular, we
show that in many rings, there exists a function that is not a conjugate
of some polynomial function. The only tools needed are from typical
undergraduate Mathematics courses, such as Linear Algebra. If time
permits, we will show some relevant computations in MathCAD, and in
the Universal Algebra Calculator. This talk is intended to be accessible
to undergraduate students.

All are welcome.
