Learning Seminar in Representation Stability

Date:  Friday, April 01, 2022
Location:  1866 East Hall (4:00 PM to 4:50 PM)

Title:  Matrices

Abstract:   I will discuss a new concept I am excited about: Matrices. Matrices are a way of encoding the information of a linear map between two vector spaces with distinguished bases. There is even a matrix "multiplication" operation that corresponds to the composition of linear maps! I will discuss these ideas as well as other exciting notions like the trace and determinant of a matrix. Based on joint work with Andrew Snowden.

DISCLAIMER: This is not an April fools joke.
