SPECIAL SEMINAR TALK | |

Topic: | Nodal Lines of Random Waves |

Speaker: | M. Sodin |

Affiliation: | Tel Aviv University |

Date: | Tuesday, October 26 |

Time/Room: | 3:15pm - 4:15pm/S-101 |

In the talk, I will describe recent attempts to understand the mysterious and beautiful geometry of nodal lines of random spherical harmonics and of random plane waves. If time permits, I will also discuss asymptotic statistical topology of other natural polynomial-like ensembles of random functions. The talk is based on a joint work with Fedja Nazarov.
