Title: Universality of random functions

Speaker: Oanh Nguyen, Princeton University

Date: Monday, March 5, 2018 2:00 pm

Location: Hill Center, Room 705, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


In this talk, we will discuss recent progress in the study of random functions with a focus on a general framework to prove some universality properties of the roots of random functions. We illustrate how to apply this framework to some popular models of random functions such as random Kac polynomials, random trigonometric polynomials, random Taylor series, and so on.

This is joint work with Van Vu.
