New preprint [arxiv.org:1310.7055], joint with Richard Arratia (a probabilist) and Joe Kilian (a computer scientist) on the birthday problem: how many people do you need to have c birthdays in common? Perhaps surprisingly, the results … Continue reading
New paper at joint with Bob Guralnick: Simple algebraic groups are (usually) determined by an invariant (arxiv.org:1309.6611). A very special case of our main results is a description of groups of type E8.
Come see Hernando Bermudez’s poster on our joint paper Linear preservers and representations with a 1-dimensional ring of invariants at MathFest.
I’m now associate director at the Institute for Pure & Applied Math at UCLA. Don’t bother knocking on the door of my Emory office!
New paper from my group: Degree 3 cohomological invariants of groups that are neither simply connected nor adjoint. [arxiv.org:1305.2899]
See me talking on CNN Newsroom today with Martin Savidge around 7:30pm eastern.
