Deanna Needell's Abstract


Claremont Mathematics Weekend


Sponsored by Claremont Colleges


January 30 - 31, 2016


Speaker: Deanna Needell
Title: "Why it's hot in high dimensions"

We live in a three‐dimensional world, so the geometry in low dimensional space is relatively intuitive to us. In this talk we will explore those intuitions as we progress into higher and higher dimensions, where we will find beautiful and surprising geometries. We will discuss how these geometric notions can be helpful in real‐world applications like the big data crisis. In the end, students will have an appreciation for the beauty and challenges of high dimensional mathematical ideas as well as how those appear in their day to day lives.
