Mathematics in the Popular Press

"Mathematics is one of the most efficient means of approaching the great secret, of considering what lies past all that we can see or presently imagine. Mathematics doesn’t describe the secret so much as it implies that there is one..."

Microtutorials

UCR Microtutorial 2

The Microtutorials in Mathematics project team at UCR has conceived a new approach to producing a collection of micro-tutorials as supplementary instructional and learning materials. The intent is to assist the students and instructors to connect calculus with applications in various subject matters. The students could use them freely on any topics of their choice.  The videos are produced with follow-up questions to enable instructors to flip their classrooms if desired. For details, please visit its website: https://microtutorials.ucr.edu

Spectrum and curvature
November 16, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
Zoom
Jiaping Wang, U. Minnesota Abstract: The classical de Rham-Hodge theory implies that each cohomology class of a compact manifold is uniquely represented by a harmonic form, signifying the important role of Laplacian in geometry. The talk aims to explain some results concerning the size and structure of its spectrum. After a brief…
Some recent developments around entropy in ergodic theory
November 09, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
Skye 284
Jiaping Wang, U. Minnesota Abstract: The entropy rate of a stationary sequence of random symbols was introduced by Shannon in his foundational work on information theory in 1948.  In the early 1950s, Kolmogorov and Sinai realized that they could turn this quantity into an isomorphism invariant for measure-preserving…
