Comparative linguistics, which aims to understand the relatedness of languages, has traditionally been a qualitative discipline examining written records. In this talk, we’ll attempt to persuade you that maybe a mixture of functional analysis, non-parametric statistics and non-Euclidean geometry, with the odd acoustic signal thrown in, might be another way to go.

This talk is part of the The Archimedeans (CU Mathematical Society) series.
