SUMMARY:Mathematics Colloquium | Rajendra Bhatia
DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Rajendra Bhatia\nProfessor\, Department of Mathematics\, Ashoka University\nTitle: Loewner Matrices\n\nAbstract: Given a function f on R\, a positive integer n and a choice of points p_1\,….\,p_n\, the Loewner matrix L(f\, p) is the nxn matrix whose (i\,j) entry is the divided difference [f(p_i) – f(p_j)] / [p_i – p_j]. These matrices arise in several contexts\, one of them being the celebrated Loewner’s theory of matrix monotone functions. Some of this theory was discussed in Siddharth Mulherkar’s talk on 6 April. We will talk some more of these matrices. The talk is intended for and will be accessible to\, students who have taken a second course on Linear Algebra. The first part will be on the blackboard introducing all concepts involved.\n\nNote: This talk will not be recorded or made available later
