Spring 2017 Chern-Simons Lectures: Ivan Corwin, Columbia University, April 3-7
Prof. Corwin works to unify algebraic structures within mathematics, build bridges between these structures and domains of physics, and discover universal phenomena within these domains. He has uncovered universal distributions (modern day parallels of the bell curve) in models of interface growth, traffic flow, mass transport, turbulence, and shock-fronts.
He will give lectures on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and the Mathematics Department colloquium on Thursday.
