The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences will welcome Ramazan Türkmen, Ph.D., from Selcuk University in Konya, Turkey, to speak as part of the Mathematics Colloquium Series. The event is hosted by the college’s Division of Math, Science, and Technology.
“Some New Majorization Inequalities for Matrices”
Wednesday, Apr. 18
Mailman-Hollywood Building | Room 309
Inequalities have been a major mathematical research area. They have various applications in pure and applied mathematics. Majorization is one of the most powerful techniques for deriving inequalities. Many interesting and powerful results about eigenvalues, singular values, and norms of matrices were obtained using majorization. It is applied in fields such as optimization, signal processing, wireless communications, and quantum information theory. In this presentation, Türkmen will provide some basic definitions and fundamental results about matrices and majorization. He will also present some new results concerning partitioned positive semidefinite matrices.
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.
