Nodal Lines of Random Waves

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.
