Title. Non-commutative extensions of the MacMahon master theorem

Abstract. The MacMahon master theorem is a classic theorem in enumerative
combinatorics with many interesting applications. Recently, a
q-right-quantum generalization was given by Garoufalidis-Le-Zeilberger. In
this talk, we present a framework that not only gives a simple new proof of
the classical result, but also generalizes the GLZ master theorem and gives
some other extensions and applications.
