All courses for every first-year Science student will be delivered online this fall. A limited number of students in their second, third and fourth years will return to campus for part of the semester.

Women in Math Seminar -Johanna Franklin - Algorithmic randomness and its connections to analysis

Description

Speaker: Johanna Franklin


Title: Algorithmic randomness and its connections to analysis

Abstract: I will characterize randomness using concepts from computability theory with three different approaches as starting points: algorithmic information theory, probability, and measure theory. After discussing what it means to say that an infinite binary sequence is random, I'll extend this notion to more traditional mathematical contexts and explain the strong relationships that exist between algorithmic randomness and classical theorems in analysis.
