Can everything be computed? On the Solvability Complexity Index and towers of algorithm.
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Carola-Bibiane Schoenlieb.
In this talk we will discuss some of the foundations of computational mathematics. In particular, I will ask the rather fundamental questions: “Can everything be computed?” and: “In what way?” and discuss possible ways to answer them. This is done by linking some new developments in computational mathematics (in particular the Solvability Complexity Index and towers of algorithms) to some of the fundamental works of Godel, McMullen and Smale.
This talk is part of the Applied and Computational Analysis series.
