About applied algebra - Emanuele Delucchi
14 October 2020
Manno, Galleria 1, 2nd floor @12h00 Room 222
The field of applied algebra encompasses a wide range of subjects in pure mathematics with applications in areas such as data analysis, biology, optimization and coding theory, to name a few. A hallmark of this research area is the mutual interaction between the development of abstract mathematical tools and the problems coming from real-world applications.

In the talk I will illustrate this fascinating subject by means of a few examples that are especially related to my own research, including applications to computational biology, consensus methods in data analysis and neural networks.

The exposition will not assume any preliminary knowledge, and everybody is welcome to attend.

The speaker

Emanuele Delucchi is SNSF-Professor of mathematics at University of Fribourg since 2014. He obtained his Ph.D. in mathematics from ETHZ in 2006 and has since held postdoctoral positions in Italy (Pisa), the USA (MSRI Berkeley and SUNY Binghamton) and Germany (Bremen). He obtained his "Habilitation" in Bremen in 2011. In 2019 he was appointed an ISA fellow at the University of Bologna. 
His research is in combinatorics, topology, algebra and their applications. He is also interested in mathematics education.
