An Introduction to Symplectic Geometry and some Applications

Monday, October 19, 2020 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Online via Zoom

Associate Professor

Symplectic geometry has its origins in Hamiltonian mechanics, but now also exists as an independent area of pure mathematics. The goal of this talk is to provide an accessible introduction to symplectic geometry and to highlight some modern connections to both polymer physics and statistical signal processing. 

This presentation includes some joint work with Jason Cantarella and with Tom Needham.
