Abel Prize 2020

The Club of Mathematics in collaboration with Anvesha is organizing a public talk today on this year's Abel Prize, jointly awarded to Hillel Furstenberg and Gregory Margulis, for pioneering methods from probability and dynamics in varied areas.

Starting this year, the 'Abel Prize Talks' will be held every year, where an expert will give insight into the work that gets awarded and share their perspective in that field of research. The talk will be followed by a 5-10 min question and answer session. We very much hope that you will be able to attend the same, as well as interact with the speaker!

Speaker: Dr. Nikita Agarwal, IISER Bhopal
About the speaker: She completed her Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Houston, TX, and is currently a faculty at the Department of Mathematics, IISER Bhopal. Her primary research interests lie in pure and applied dynamical systems and ergodic theory. She is also an active member of the Indian Women in Mathematics (IWM).
Venue and time: Google Meet | 04:0 PM (GMT +5:30), Saturday, 24th October, 2020.

The talk will also be live streamed on the CMIT's youtube channel.
