SUMMARY:Applying physics to mathematics
DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Eeshan Modak\n\nAbstract: \nThis talk is based on Tada
shi Tokieda's wonderful talk (https://www.youtube.com/watchv=tQQ3oiB32GI&t
=1s) as a part of ICTS's distinguished lecture series. To quote Tokeida\,
"Humans tend to be better at physics than at mathematics. When an apple fa
lls from a tree\, there are more people who can catch it—we know physica
lly how the apple moves—than people who can compute its trajectory from
a differential equation. Applying physical ideas to discover and establish
mathematical results is therefore natural\, even if it has seldom been tr
ied in the history of science."\n\nWe will see how we can derive fundament
al theorems like Pythagoras theorem\, Cauchy-Schwarz inequality\, AM-GM in
equality among others using simple physics.\n\nZoom link:\nhttps://zoom.us
