Jing Zhang Carnegie Mellon University Title: Discovering a Full But Irrational Self Abstract: There are problems like the following: Is it possible to partition R^n such that no two points in one component has rational (Euclidean) distance from each other? Given a subset of R^n is it possible to find a subset of it that is full (roughly means having the same outer measure) and no two points in it have rational distance from each other? ETC. I'll sketch some known proofs and mention some open problems. Date: Tuesday, January 26, 2016 Time: 5:30 pm Location: Wean Hall 8220 Submitted by: Yangxi Ou Note: This talk is not video recorded.
