Isospectral Manifolds

Sabrina Tang Christensen
Lectures for students by students
Friday, 20 September, 2013, at 14:30-15:30, in Aud. G2 (1532-122)
Abstract:
In this interactive lecture, you will learn to answer the question 'Can you hear the shape of a drum?'. You do not need to know what a manifold is; the lecture will be aimed at math students on all levels. We shall cover the basic theory of isospectral manifolds in order to even understand what it means to hear the shape of a drum/manifold. We will also construct examples of isospectral manifolds.
