Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar I

Expander Random Walks: A Fourier-Analytic Approach
11:15am|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

A random walk on expanders, despite its strong underlying correlations, poses extremely useful pseudorandom properties. The expander hitting property and the expander Chernoff are two such classic examples. That is, the AND function and certain...

Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar II

Linear spaces of matrices
10:30am|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

The study of linear spaces of matrices arises naturally (and independently) in many different areas of mathematics and computer science.  In this survey talk, I will describe some of these motivations, and state and prove some (old and new)...
