I was involved in the following seminars. The tensor networks and applications group has now been absorbed into the Applied Algebra and Network Theory Seminar. The Teaching Math Discussion Group is now run by Aleksey Zelenberg and David Zach.
About These Seminars
Tensor Network Seminar
A tensor network is a simple idea. We're looking at elements of tensored spaces and giving a graphical representation based on how these elements can be expressed. As with many simple ideas, however, the applications can be endless.
This seminar covers topics from areas in which tensor networks are used. It has covered topics in Complexity Theory, Quantum Computing, and Quantum Physics.
Jason Morton is the supervising faculty for the seminar.
Teaching Math Discussion Group
This group began out of a conversation I had in the Fall of 2012 with Shiv Karunakaran, then a Math-Education graduate student. He felt a connection between graduate students in Math and Math-Education would be mutually beneficial. We began organizing meetings between the two departments. These conversations, however, quickly focused on college math education. Math graduate students had a lot of questions and opinions about the process of learning math at the college level. Slowly, the group morphed into what it is today.
Over time, we'd like to expand the group to be more welcoming to all who teach math at the college-level.
