UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA
Department of Mathematics
Fall 2013 - Hans Rademacher Lectures in Mathematics
Ben J. Green
will speak on
Approximate algebraic structure and applications
Abstract: What should we understand by an approximate group, approximate field, or approximate polynomial? What algebraic structure can we discern in these objects, and what applications does this have? The four talks will be fairly independent, although there are connections between the topics covered.
