Numerical approximation and statistical inference are intimately connected through the common purpose of making estimations with partial information. This shared purpose is currently stimulating a growing interest in statistical inference/machine-learning approaches to solving PDEs, in the use of randomized algorithms in linear algebra, and in the merging of numerical errors with modeling errors in uncertainty quantification. This review is an invitation to explore these connections from the consolidating perspective of game/decision theory.
Sharing our work through seminars, colloquia, and presentations offers an invitation for a far larger audience to explore our writings, building community and fostering collaboration. Although the skills for publication have some overlap with those for performance, the distinctions are greater: giving good talks involves not just a command of words and images but speech, body movement, control of time, and a disproportionate emphasis on storytelling. This article is just one of several in this month’s Early Career section on Planning Ahead for the Joint Meetings.
What is it about MCM/ICM that makes it more attractive to female participation? Founder and CEO of COMAP Solomon Garfunkel asked Prof. Jo Boaler of Stanford University if she and her team would undertake this question. The purpose of this article is to further expand on some of the key results and think about ways to use the information gathered to increase female participation in other valued mathematics activities.
