Join us on Wednesday at 7:00pm in the Synge for a talk by Trinity’s own Sinéad Ryan on “Scientific Computing: Matrices and their Inverses.” Here is a small taster of what to expect:

Linear systems are ubiquitous in scientific applications and their numerical solution is crucial in fields from fundamental physics to engineering and bio-physics. In fact the solution almost never involves finding the inverse of the matrix A and I will discuss why and how algorithms are designed to circumvent this direct approach.

I will also discuss some applications in quantum field theory and what to expect from current and future computing paradigms.
