Math Seminar Series  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Student GAUSS Seminar

Craig Gross from Michigan State University will be speaking.

The title of the seminar is "Transform your life (fast!) with the Fast Fourier Transform."

This will be an expository talk, where we'll begin by introducing Fourier series for periodic functions. After an effusive discussion of their nice properties, we'll move to computer-land and talk about how to approximate coefficients of Fourier series "digitally". This will bring us around to what Gilbert Strang described as "the most important numerical algorithm of our lifetime": the Fast Fourier Transform. We'll talk about how it works and just how fast it really is.
