Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar II

Factorization through L2, Rounding and Duality Part 2
10:30am|Remote Access Only - see link below

Let X and Y be normed spaces. In functional analysis, a ``theorem on factorization through L2'' refers to the following type of statement: 

Every bounded linear operator A mapping X to Y (i.e. sup_x ||A(x)||_Y/||x||_X

Such factorization...

Galaxy Clusters : the largest particle accelerators in the Universe
Gianfranco Brunetti
11:00am|Virtual Meeting

Galaxy clusters and cosmic filaments are the largest structures in the Universe. During mergers between clusters shocks and turbulence are driven in the intra-cluster-medium (ICM) and dissipate a fraction of their energy into particle acceleration...

Stability and Testability

Approximations of groups, subquotients of infinite direct products and equations over groups
Lev Glebsky
11:00am|Remote Access - see Zoom link below

Let C be a class of groups. (For example, C is a class of all finite groups, or C is a class of all finite symmetric groups.) I give a definition of approximations of a group G by groups from C. For example, the groups approximable by symmetric...
