MaPSS: Maths Postgraduate Seminar Series: Eric Hester -- Examples of Duality in Mathematics

Hello all, 

The next MaPSS talk of this semester will be at 17:00 on Monday 28th of October in
Carslaw 535.  It’s a great opportunity to meet fellow postgrads, listen to an
interesting talk, and of course get some free pizza! 


Speaker: Eric Hester 

Title: Examples of Duality in Mathematics 

Abstract: Vector and dual vector, matrix and transpose, covariant and contravariant.
Time and frequency, position and momentum, temperature and entropy.  Maths (and physics)
are full of "dual" concepts.  This talk will show some examples of this duality, and
draw some connections between them.  


See you there!
