Indroduction to Non Commutative Probability Part 2

Kesav Krishnan (UIUC Math)

Abstract: I will continue the talk from last friday, on the Introduction to Non Commutative Probability. In this talk, I will focus on limit laws, in particular the non commutative CLT and the universality of the semi-circle law.

A Brief Introduction to Problem Writing

David Altizio   [email] (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)

Abstract: Many of the best mathematics competition problems push the boundaries of pre-calculus math in unexpected ways. While these questions fuel the popularity of contests among middle and high school students, they also make competitions seem inherently unsustainable; constructing these questions appears to be a Herculean task. In this talk, I will shed some insight into how problems are made by exploring my eight-year-long journey through problem writing. In particular, I will discuss common writing philosophies, sources of inspiration, and the stories behind some of my favorite creations.

A probabilistic approach to quantizing Yang-Mills theory

Kesav Krishnan (UIUC)

Abstract: I will introduce the problem of rigorously quantizing Yang Mills Theory, and how probability theory can be used to that end. If time permits, I will talk about the discrete gauge-string duality as introduced by Sourav Chatterjee
