Abstract: Two families of lattices which draw considerable attention in combinatorics are the bond lattices of graphs and the lattices of noncrossing partitions. Recent research has considered a variant of these two families: the noncrossing bond lattices of graphs. These noncrossing bond lattices are strictly finer graph invariants than ordinary bond lattices, but have a subtler combinatorial structure.

In this talk I will discuss a family of graphs whose noncrossing bond lattices have nice combinatorial properties. To do so, I will give a brief introduction to the tools from poset topology used to analyze such posets.
