Analysis Seminar

English

 

SPEAKER: Brice Rodrigue Mbombo (University of São Paulo)             ABSTRACT: We will present several Ramsey properties for matrices and some applications, including the extreme amenability of the group of isometries of the Gurarij space and an alternative proof of the Graham-Leeb-Rothschild theorem on Grassmannians over a finite field. This is a joint work with Dana Bartošová (University of São Paulo) and Jordi López-Abad (ICMAT Madrid).

Seminar

English

SPEAKER: Tanya Schmah (Univ. of Ottawa)

In optimal transport problems, the aim is to optimally transform a given measure into another one. This has many possible interpretations:

as actual mass transport; as transformations of images; or as transformations of probability distributions. The Data Science and Machine Learning group is starting a reading group on this subject. This week’s seminar will be an overview, followed by discussion and scheduling of future talks. Please consider suggesting papers for the group to read.

Logic Seminar

English

 

SPEAKER: Richard Blute (University of Ottawa)             ABSTRACT: In this expository talk, we introduce these algebras as an algebraic way to capture the notion of antidifferentiation. We discuss constructions and examples, and discuss how this may ultimately lead to a theory of integral linear logic.
