Mathematical Sciences Department Colloquium: Diophantine approximation in Banach spaces

Friday, August 20, 2021 at 11:00am to 12:00pm

JSOM, 1.508 800 W. Campbell Road, Richardson, Texas 75080

Dr. David Simmons, University of York, extends the theory of simultaneous Diophantine approximation to infinite dimensions. Moreover, Dirichlet-type theorems are discussed in a very general framework and define what it means for such a theorem to be optimal. We show that optimality is implied by but does not imply the existence of badly approximable points.           

Coffee will be served beforehand, 10:30 am, in the alcove outside FO 2.406.
