KELLER Colloquium in Computing & Mathematical Sciences

From Acoustics to the Lindelof Hypothesis
Thanasis Fokas, Professor of Nonlinear Mathematical Science, Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge

For many years,the employment of the Wienr-Hopf technique to acoustics and other physical problems,was the only manifestation in applications of the Riemann-Hilbert formalism.However,in the last 50 years this formalism and its natural generalization called the d-bar formalism,have appeared in a large number of problems in mathematics and mathematical physics.In this lecture,I will review the impact of the above formalisms in the following:theĀ  development of a novel,hybrid numerical-analytics method for solving boundary value problems(Fokas Method,www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fokas_method),the introduction of new algorithms in nuclear medical imaging,and most importantly,a novel approach to the Lindelof Hypothesis(a close relative of the Riemann Hypothesis).
