School of Math Ordway Distinguished Lecture: Applied Random Matrix Theory

Monday, April 23, 2018 - 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Keller 3-180
Random matrices now play a role in many areas of theoretical, applied, and computational mathematics. Therefore, it is desirable to have tools for studying random matrices that are flexible, easy to use, and powerful. Over the last fifteen years, researchers have developed a remarkable family of results, called matrix concentration inequalities, that balance these criteria. This talk offers an invitation to the field of matrix concentration inequalities and their applications.
