Abstract: The Catalan numbers are an incredibly pervasive sequence which count many recursive situations, and have been discovered to satisfy many combinatorial interpretations -- over 70 are known. In this talk, I'll give a few interpretations and prove they're counted by the Catalan numbers, as well as mention a few more exotic interpretations.
