Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2022

Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Location: Virtual through Zoom

Professor Alan Edelman obtained his Ph.D. from MIT in 1989, where is currently a Professor of Applied Mathematics. He is also the Chief Scientist at Julia Computing, Inc. He is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society, Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics, Association for Computing Machinery and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. In 2019, he received the IEEE Computer Society Sidney Fernbach Award. Professor Edelman has lead a somewhat unusual life proving "pure math" theorems in random matrix theory, developing numerical algorithms, and improving software for high performance computing. He has found that the theory and the practice go hand in hand. https://klein.mit.edu/~edelman/index.php.
