Daubechies Lecture 2021: Waves: Building Blocks in Nature and in Mathematics
In this talk, MIT Abby Rockefeller Mauze Professor of Mathematics Gigliola Staffilani will provide an overview of wave phenomena in nature and explain how mathematicians use tools from many different areas of mathematics such as Fourier analysis, harmonic analysis, dynamical systems, number theory, and probability to understand these phenomena. Examples will be provided of the beautiful interaction between the "concrete" and the "abstract" and how this interaction constantly moves the boundaries of research forward.
This keynote, in honor of Duke professor and renowned mathematician Ingrid Daubechies, is one of the many events during Duke Research Week 2021. Register to join at dukeresearchweek.vfairs.com.
