Matroids, Algebra, and Entropy

A matroid is a combinatorial object based on an abstraction of linear independence in vector spaces and forests
in graphs. This talk connects matroid theory with algebra via the so-called von Staudt constructions. These are
combinatorial gadgets to encode polynomials in matroids.

I will discuss generalized matroid representations as arrangements over division rings, subspace arrangements
and as entropy functions together with their relation to group theory.

As an application this yields a proof that the conditional independence implication problem from information
theory is undecidable. 

Based on joint work with Rudi Pendavingh and Geva Yashfe.

The Mathematics of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence is currently leading to one breakthrough
after the other, both in public life with, for instance, autonomous
driving and speech recognition, and in the sciences in areas such
as medical diagnostics or molecular dynamics. A similarly strong
impact can currently be witnessed within mathematics on areas such
as inverse problems and numerical analysis of partial differential

The goal of this lecture is to first provide an introduction into
this new vibrant research area. We will then survey recent advances
in two directions, namely the development of a mathematical
foundation of artificial intelligence and the introduction of
according novel approaches to solve inverse problems and partial
differential equations. We will also discuss fundamental
limitations of such methodologies, in particular, in terms of
