This is a monthly event where anyone is invited to talk on a topic of maths or science that may be of interest to them. You may be a researcher and feel like telling other people about what you do; or you may be a computer scientist and want to share some cool programming techniques or computational approaches. We're interested in anything relating to science and maths, and technical talks are encouraged!
Addition and Inequality
The Cauchy-Schwarz inequality has had a major impact on mathematics and science since Augustin-Louis Cauchy first published the discrete version in 1821.
Using only high school level algebra, this talk will begin with a proof of Cauchy’s inequality and then proceed to some applications that demonstrate its real power.
About the speaker:
Jonathan Scanlan holds a Master of Statistics and Operations Research from RMIT. Since graduating with distinction in 2015, he has been working in advertising technology (AdTech), primarily on projects that serve to eliminate existing dependencies on human effort.
Note: The date is a small change from our usual pattern of last Wednesday of the month, on account of speaker availability.
