Gunnar Carlsson, the Ann and Bill Swindells Professor of Mathematics at Stanford University, will present two lectures on the Colorado State University campus. On Monday, Oct. 20, at 11 a.m., Carlsson will talk about “The Shape of Data” and recently developed methods for the analysis of large, high-dimensional and complex data sets. The lecture will be held in the Grey Rock Room of the Lory Student Center, and will be preceded by a reception with refreshments at 10:30 a.m. On Tuesday, Oct. 21, at 1 p.m., Carlsson will conduct a special seminar about “The Algebraic Geometry of Persistence Barcodes,” in Room 221 of the TILT building on the Oval. This talk will be followed by a reception, with refreshments, at 2 p.m. Both presentations are part of the ISTeC Distinguished Lecture Series, sponsored by CSU’s Information Science and Technology Center. Carlsson’s lectures are presented in conjunction with the Mathematics, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Computer Science departments at Colorado State University.
