Topic: | On Random Bernoulli Matrices: Singularity and Determinant |

Speaker: | Van Vu |

Affiliation: | University of California at San Diego |

Time/Room: | 10:30am - 12:30pm/S-101 |

We study properties of random Bernoulli matrices. In particular, we determine the typical value of the determinant. We also obtain a new bound on the probability that the matrix is singular. Joint work with T. Tao.
