Title:Linear Programming, Matrix Games, and Linear Approximation II
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Leonid Vaserstein, Penn State
Linear Programming is about optimization of linear functions subject to linear constraints; Matrix Games is about 2-player 0-sum games; Linear Approximation is about approximate solutions for system of linear equations (precise definitions will be given, so talk will be accessible to undergraduate students). Several connections between these 3 big (in comparison with algebra and number theory) areas of applied mathematics (and some other areas, e.g., statistics) are known. We will show that these 3 areas are equivalent (at least, from the computational point of view).
