Mathematics Colloquium Series Opens Semester with Talk on Matrix Functions, Sept. 21

Now in its third year, the Mathematics Colloquium Series will open its fall semester of talks with a presentation titled “Positivity of Generalized Matrix Functions.” The series is hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Division of Math, Science, and Technology.   

Presented by Fuzhen Zhang, Ph.D., professor in the college, the talk will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 21, from noon to 1:00 p.m., in the Alvin Sherman Library, room 3018.

About the Topic

This talk provides elegant proofs for a number of existing results by a unified approach. Zhang will also present new results on the positivity of generalized matrix functions associated with symmetric groups and irreducible characters.

Established in the fall of 2009, the Mathematics Colloquium Series aims to increase awareness of mathematics’ importance and applications in daily life. The series also gives mathematics faculty members and students the opportunity to discuss independent research and share their passion for the subject. These talks are free and open to the public.

For more information on this lecture or the college’s Mathematics Colloquium Series, please contact Vehbi Paksoy, Ph.D., or Iuliana Stanculescu, Ph.D., assistant professors in the college.
