Mathematical Thinking and Computational Thinking (Part 1)
Prof. C. Pandu Rangan, CSE Department, IIT Madras (Currently visiting IIT Bombay)
Date & Time: January 25, 2016 20:30
Venue: Room # SIC 201, 2nd Floor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Kanwal Rekhi (KReSIT) Building
The human race has distinguished itself among the living things through its power of thinking. We examine, experience and immerse in Mathematical thinking, which is in some sense a primordial one and perhaps "mother" of all kinds of thinking. We will select some problems for discussions and enjoy the nuances and subtleties of this style of thinking. As computer science is essentially a science of abstraction, mathematical and computational thinking is of fundamental importance to us. There is no prerequisite needed. The basic courses done in CSE, such as discrete mathematics are sufficient for the kind of discussions we carry out. Although discussions on the topics with the above title can be done with variety of mathematical subtopics, we begin with something that we {CSE students at all levels} are familiar with.
Speaker Profile:
Prof C. Pandu Rangan has been teaching courses on Algorithms, Cryptography, and Discrete mathematics for the past 33 years at IIT, madras, CSE dept. He has coauthored over 200 research articles in these areas, with over 174 students of IIT (Btech, Mtech, MS, DD, PhD} and 20+ interns who visited IIT, Madras for research experience; he is one of the best known and most prolific researchers in these areas in India.
