Fault-tolerant Coding for Quantum Communication

MATHEMATICAL PICTURE LANGUAGE

January 26, 2021      10:00 am
Speaker: Matthias Christandl - University of Copenhagen

Designing encoding and decoding circuits to send messages reliably over many uses of a noisy channel is a central problem in communication theory. When studying the optimal transmission rates achievable...

Complexity of neural networks

MATHEMATICAL PICTURE LANGUAGE

January 19, 2021      10:00 am
Speaker: Kaifeng Bu - Harvard University and Tsinghua University

One of the central problems in the study of deep learning theory is to understand complexity of the neural networks. In this talk, we will introduce the topological entropy from...

CMSA New Technologies in Mathematics: AI and Theorem Proving

CMSA EVENTS

January 13, 2021      3:00 pm
Speaker: Josef Urban - Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics

The talk will discuss the main approaches that combine machine learning with automated theorem proving and automated formalization. This includes learning to choose relevant facts for “hammer” systems, guiding the proof search...

Stable character polynomials for symmetric groups

MATHEMATICAL PICTURE LANGUAGE

January 12, 2021      10:00 am
Speaker: Christopher Ryba - University of California Berkeley

Schur functions serve as characters of representations of unitary (and general linear) groups; the multiplicative structure of Schur functions determines the fusion rules for representations of unitary groups. We will...

Fundamental bound on time signal generation

MATHEMATICAL PICTURE LANGUAGE

January 5, 2021      10:00 am
Speaker: Renato Renner - ETH-Zurich

Does quantum theory impose any limits on how accurately we can map out spacetime and, if yes, what are they? This question has been studied already in the early days...
