(Does it still make sense to blog such announcements or is these days Twitter the only way to go about this? Asking for a friend 🙂 )
Prasad Raghavendra and Avishay Tal have organized a sequence of 6 lectures on some of the exciting recent advances in analysis of Boolean functions.
The Simons Institute is organizing a series of lectures on Advances in Boolean Function Analysis, that will highlight a few major developments in the area. The series will feature weekly two-hour lectures from July 15th to Aug 18th. The lectures aim to address both the broad context of the results and their technical details. Though closely related in theme, each lecture will be self-contained. The schedule is attached below (more info at link).
Talks take place on Wednesdays at 10am Pacific time (1pm Eastern). If you can’t catch them live, they will be redcorded.
