Oeding awarded an NSF Grant to support an NSF CBMS Conference

Published: 11/07/2016

Dr. Luke Oeding was awarded an NSF Grant to support an NSF CBMS Conference on "Tensors and their uses in approximation theory, quantum information theory and geometry." The conference will be held on July 24–28, 2017 at Auburn University and will feature 10 lectures by Dr. J.M. Landsberg of Texas A&M University and 7 supporting lectures by other leading researchers in mathematics and physics.

The main goal of the proposed conference is to introduce a large group of individuals to the state of the art in theory and recent important applications. The aims of the lectures are to 

  • give an elementary introduction to tensors, their geometry and uses accessible to beginning graduate students. 
  • describe applications that have either not been treated in expository form previously, or had been treated from a completely different perspective (e.g., of physics or numerical analysis rather than a geometric perspective). 
  • describe recent breakthroughs in the study of tensor rank and border rank. 
  • bring attention to open questions—both old and recent—regarding tensors. 

Graduate students and young researchers will become equipped to start on open problems, allowing them to begin contributing to scientific discovery right away.
