Mathematics & Statistics Colloquium: September 16, 2021

  • Thursday, September 16, 2021
  • 3:30 PM–4:30 PM
  • NH 276

Joshua Ruiter will give a lecture "The General Linear Group is a Beautiful Buttefly" at the Mathematics & Statistics Colloquim

on September 16, 2021 from 3:40 to 4:30.    Joshua is a Ph.D. candidate at Michigan State University. Join us for the lecture and then at the Fall Picnic immediately following.

The group of n-by-n invertible matrices is useful in many areas of mathematics, such as solving systems of linear equations. It also has a lot of internal structure, which will be my focus. We'll talk about the various parts of this group that correspond to the torso, wings, and pins of a pinned butterfly specimen you might see in a museum.
