Irit Dinur, Ph.D.Department of Applied Math and Computer Science, Weizmann Institute of Science
Simons Foundation Presidential Lectures are free public colloquia centered on four main themes: Biology, Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science, and Neuroscience and Autism Science. These curated, high-level scientific talks feature leading scientists and mathematicians and are intended to foster discourse and drive discovery among the broader NYC-area research community. We invite researchers in the area — as well as interested members of the metropolitan public — to join us for this weekly lecture series.
Expander graphs have been useful in computer science with versatile applications, including coding theory, networking, computational complexity and geometry.
High-dimensional expanders are a generalization that has been studied in recent years and hold promise for some new and exciting applications in theoretical computer science.
In the talk, Irit Dinur will survey some fascinating local to global properties of high-dimensional expanders. Can these be harnessed for further computer science applications? She will describe the state-of-the-art and interesting future directions.
