Guest Lecture

Besides lectures and tutorials, we also organize guest talks for EPYMT students.

In 2017 summer, we are going to organize the following talks:

1. Guest Lecture on 24 July 2017
TopicProbability: from intuition to mathematics
SpeakerProf. WONG Ting-Kam Leonard
Assistant Professor, University of Southern California
Date24 July 2017 (Mon)
Time 2:30pm - 4:00pm
VenueLT, William M.W. Mong Engineering Building (ERB),
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (Map)
Abstract What is randomness, and what can mathematics say about it? We begin by discussing various meanings and applications of probability. Then, we turn to its mathematical foundation. After explaining the subtleties of the axioms of probability, we give a glimpse of modern research: limit theorems - patterns behind random processes, and connections with geometry. No previous knowledge of probability is required.

2. Guest Lecture on 28 July 2017
TopicTopology and surfaces
SpeakerMr. SO Tse Leung

Time2:30pm - 4:00pm
VenueLT, William M.W. Mong Engineering Building (ERB),

In 2016 summer, we also held two guest talks. Many students enjoyed the talks and raised further mathematics questions. Click here for details.
