|Joint IAS/Princeton University Number Theory Seminar|
|Topic:||Modular forms and optimization in Euclidean space|
|Date:||Thursday, September 15|
|Time/Room:||4:30pm - 5:30pm/Fine 214, Princeton University|
In this talk we will show how modular forms can be applied to energy minimization problems in Euclidean space. Namely, we will explain Cohn-Elkies linear programming method and present explicit constructions of corresponding certificate functions. In particular, we will discuss optimization in dimensions 8 and 24.
