Cosmological investigations on large and small scales


The standard model of cosmology has been understood to be reasonably successful in explaining many observations so far. However, it is faced with some problems on both large and small scales. On large scales, some anomalies observed in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) data challenges the statistical isotropy of the Universe. Around 80% of my talk will be about testing the assumption of isotropy for the acceleration of the expansion of the Universe, and also for the distribution of galaxy types. On small scales, the predictions of the standard model of cosmology for the physical properties, number, and spatial distribution of the dwarf ...

The coding lens in explicit constructions for sparse recovery


The theory of error-correcting codes, originally developed as a fundamental technique for a systematic study of communications systems, has served as a pivotal tool in major areas of mathematics, computer science and electrical engineering. Understanding problems through a "coding lens" has consistently led to breakthroughs in a wide spectrum of research areas, often seemingly foreign from coding theory, including discrete mathematics, geometry, cryptography, signal processing, algorithms and complexity, to name a few. This talk will focus on the role of coding theory in explicit construction problems in sparse recovery and signal processing. ...
