On Some Characteristics of Uniformity of Distribution and Their Applications


Friday, 11th May 2007

Speaker: Professor Igor Shparlinski, FAA,
Macquarie University.

We consider some relatively new
characteristics of uniformity of the distribution of sequences that are not widely known and show their connections to several classical measures like discrepancy and exponential sums.
They are connected to several problems from quite different areas such as choosing parameters of linear iteration processes for solving system of linear equations, choosing knots for polynomial interpolation, estimating the size of Varshamov codes correcting asymmetrical errors in binary channels.
