Speaker: Muhammad Azeem Khadam (Abdus Salam School of Mathematical Sciences, Lahore Pakistan)
Time: 10h15, Wednesday, 20/3/2019, Location: Room 611-612, Building A6, Institute of Mathematics Abstract: Cumulants are basic objects in probability and statistics. In this talk I'll discuss the use of certain variation of them to study secant varieties of Segre products. I'll further mention some of the geometric properties of these varieties recently investigated by Michalek, Oeding and Zwiernik. Moreover, I'll discuss the joint ongoing work with Michalek and Zwiernik about "secant varieties of special embeddings of affine spaces". |
