Co-Lab Seminar  »

Associate Professor Linda Stals (MSI), Dr Josh Milthorpe (RSCS)
3pm 21 February 2020

On future extreme-scale computers, faults will become increasingly common as the number of individual components grows without a compensating improvement in reliability. We will explore a two-pronged complementary approach to both reduce the amount of redundancy and to speed up the recovery process.

Hyperplane arrangements and Hodge theory »

Professor Nick Proudfoot, (University of Oregon)
4pm 20 February 2020

The Top Heavy Conjecture is an elementary statement about linear algebra that was open for 43 years until its recent proof by Huh and Wang, using fancy algebraic geometry. I will describe this result and discuss associated generalizations.
