CMX Lunch Seminar
This talk is organized around different examples of the word "difference". First, I will summarize some of my work in the area of non-standard finite differences, which are numerical techniques used to generate approximate solutions of differential equations. Second, I will discuss how my differences from the average mathematician has caused/allowed/encouraged me to follow a different academic trajectory than the norm. Lastly, I will present some comments on how the mathematics community treats "difference" and provides "a new hope" for how the future for different mathematicians can be different from the past.
