Director’s Cuts is excited to welcome Prof. Alex Iosevich (University of Rochester), who gives a self contained talk on tiling, bases, and elementary combinatorics. The talk is supposed to be friendly to general audience in analysis. Here is an abstract:
We are going to prove a result due to Iosevich, Mayeli, and Pakianathan which says that a subset of , prime, has an orthogonal basis of characters if and only if this subset tiles by translation. The proof involves simple analytic, combinatorial, and number theoretic ideas that work together in somewhat unusual ways.
As usual, Prof. Iosevich will also host a follow up office hour, scheduled on Wednesday, November 30 at 3:05pm US Eastern Time. Interested viewers are welcome to join us at the Zoom link:
