Title: What is a Sylvester Matrix?

Speaker: Boris Mityagin (Ohio State University)

Abstract: Since the 1850's, matrices

Sylvester Matrix

play an important, sometimes surprising, role in numerical analysis, probability theory, stochastic processes, statistical physics, quantum mechanics, number theory, etc.

We focus on two elementary questions:

  1. what are the eigenvalues of $S_n$;
  2. combinatorial identities with squares of integers (and random walks on a plane).

Homework assignment: Do [1].
