Greedy energy minimization and the van der Corput sequence

23/10/2020, 14:00 - 15:00 in online

Pausinger, Florian (Queen’s University Belfast)


After a short introduction to uniform distribution theory, I will present a new characterisation of the classical van der Corput sequence in terms of a minimization problem. This result has interesting consequences and poses various open questions which I will discuss in the final part of the talk.

This event will take place online. Please contact the colloquium organiser (Florian Pausinger) if you wish to attend.
