Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Siegel Hall Auditorium, Room 118
When numbers are added in the usual way, "carries" occur. These carries form a Markov chain with an "amazing" transition matrix. Strangely, this same matrix occurs in analyzing the usual method of shuffling cards and in the mathematical analysis of fractals. Diaconis will explain all of this in "... read more
