Mathematics Distinguished Lecture Series

Institut Teknologi Bandung

We aim to bring leading mathematicians to explore the role of mathematics from various fields in an engaging style. These distinguished lectures are aimed at a fairly wide audience, from mathematics students (advanced undergraduate and postgraduate), to mathematicians, lecturers, scientists, researchers and engineers. With this series of lectures we hope to foster and promote research culture and celebrate mathematics.

Abstract
Discrete geometric analysis is a discrete version of geometric analysis. In the digitalized society, how we understand phenomena in the physical world via their realization in the cyber world. Discrete geometric analysis aims to bridge between continuum and discrete, and to understand the hidden phenomena in discretized data. In the lecture I would like to share with you my study to develop discrete geometric analysis and its application to materials science.

Abstract
In 1985, Jean-Pierre Serre gave a series of lectures at Harvard about the maximal number of rational points on curves over finite fields. In my talk, I will tell about the motivations to study such problem and, through 3 snapshots, show recent research directions.

 

Abstract.
In the 20th century the dichotomy between abstract and concrete formulations created a deep dividing gap between pure and applied mathematics. In the 21th century a new unification is emerging. Pure mathematics is transformed by a focus on computable structures and algorithms, and computational mathematics is successfully using abstractions to design qualitatively better algorithms and software. Computational mathematics is becoming a strong unifying force of modern mathematics.

 

ABSTRACT
The study of permutations is both ancient and modern. One can view them as the integers 1,2, … , n in some order or as n x n permutation matrices. They can be regarded as data which is to be sorted. The explicit definition of the determinant uses permutations. An inversion of a permutation occurs when a larger integer precedes a smaller integer. Inversions can be used to define two partial orders on permutations, one weaker than the other. Partial orders have a unique minimal completion to a lattice, the Dedekind-MacNeille completion. Generalizations of permutation matrices determine related matrix classes, for instance, alternating sign matrices (ASMs) which arose independently in the mathematics and physics literature. Permutations may contain certain patterns, e.g. three integers in increasing order; avoiding such patterns determines certain permutation classes. Similar restrictions can be placed more generally on (0,1)-matrices.
There are continuous analogs of permutation matrices and alternating sign matrices, and even higher dimension analogs. We shall explore these and other ideas and their connections.

Abstract : Some objects in probability theory are “universal”, i.e. they arise naturally in in many different, only rather loosely related, contexts. We will discuss some of these objects and try to give a glimpse of some of the progress made over the past years towards their understanding.
