Title:Mathematics and the astronomical mystery of "Dark Matter"
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Don Saari, UC Irvine
Abstract:
One of the more compelling scientific mysteries in the last 35 years has been the one from astronomy called "dark matter." What is it? In answering this question, it will become apparent that the central issue is one of mathematics, not astronomy. As described during this lecture, the answers coming from mathematics contradict long held beliefs about the amount of this mysterious stuff that is supposed to be out there.
