The latest talk in the Mathematics Colloquium Series will discuss joint faculty research on “An Inequality for Tensor Product of Positive Operators and Its Applications.”
Presenter: Fuzhen Zhang, Ph.D., professor at the college
Wednesday, April 8
Mailman-Hollywood Building Auditorium
Using words of operators in tensor product, this talk will present an inequality for positive operators on Hilbert space. The proof of the main result is combinatorial. As applications of the operator inequality and by a multilinear approach, this talk will show some matrix inequalities concerning induced operators and generalized matrix functions (including determinants and permanents as special cases).
About the Series
Hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences Division of Math, Science, and Technology, 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.
