Title: Pinsky Lecture III: Adding Up a List of Numbers
Speaker: Professor Persi Diaconis
Speaker Info: Stanford Univeristy
Brief Description:
Special Note:

The usual process of carries when adding up a list of numbers can be analyzed using an amazing matrix (Holte). This matrix has a card shuffling interpretation. This leads to new results about addition, shuffling, and the Hilbert series of Veronese subrings. This is joint work with Jason Fulman.
