An MCSP Conversation Series Talk: "Coding and Its Applications", by Fiona Knoll of Clemson UniversityContact: Dr. Daniel T. Robb, email@example.com
Dr. Knoll, a job candidate for the tenure-track opening in mathematics, will speak about the theory of coding and how it has altered our everyday lives. The first half of the talk will be fairly general, while the second half will be more technical (though still interesting!). Abstract: "In the game of telephone, a message is passed down a line of people by whispering from person to person. The objective of the game is to pass the message without it being altered. Similarly, coding is the theory of sending messages or storing information without it being altered. In this talk, we will take a glance at how coding has altered our lives through its role in our everyday and not so everyday life. In particular, we will ponder whether or not a terabyte of information can be condensed into a kilobyte of information."
