CSpecial Talk: Theory of Computation as a Lens on the Sciences

Speaker:
Richard M. Karp (University of California at Berkeley and International Computer Science Institute)
Date:
Thursday, 17.11.2011, 16:00
Place:
Room 337-8 Taub Bld.

Many processes in the physical, biological, engineering and social sciences involve information processing at a fundamental level and can be studied through computational models. This talk will describe the impact of such models on areas such as quantum computing, dtatistical physics, economics and game theory, mathematics and computational biology.
