Special External Guest Speaker: Homotopy Type Theory

Dr David Corfield (Kent University) is currently researching in Homotopy Type Theory (http://homotopytypetheory.org/) and will be giving a talk on his research.

When: 12th March 6 30pm to 7 30pm
Where: MS.02, Zeeman Building

facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/575807745841750/
Abstract:

Last year a book was published after a year long programme of research at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Princeton. The programme goes by various names, reflecting the multiple sources of its ideas: Univalent Foundations, infinity-topos theory, intensional dependent type theory and, the name I shall use here, homotopy type theory. One key motivation is to produce a foundational language which allows much closer contact with the frontiers of mainstream mathematical research. The status quo has us rest content with a 'material' set theory, grounded on the predicate calculus, which is understood to allow the construction of surrogates for any mathematical entity, from Galois representations to Kahler metrics, however baroque such constructions would be if anyone cared to provide them. Homotopy type theory's aim is to provide a much more natural formalisation of mathematics.

Careers: Jane Street Presentation

Make sure that you sign up for the even by filling in this form!

Jane Street are coming to give a talk to WMS members on Monday 25th Feb (Week 8) at 6pm in MS.03. During the talk, you can learn more about what Jane Street do, find out about the questions they ask in their interview process and get free Domino's Pizza.

Jane Street hire year round and predominately take graduates who are great at problem solving, so if you are still looking for something to do over the summer or for a job later this year, you should check them out!

Jane Street is a quantitative proprietary trading firm that operates around the clock and around the globe. We bring a deep understanding of markets, a scientific approach, and innovative technology to bear on the problem of trading profitably in the world's highly competitive financial markets.

The culture at Jane Street is open, informal, intellectual, and fun. You can wear a T-shirt and jeans to the office every day, the kitchen is stocked, and the debates are lively. Teaching and learning are everywhere: organized classes and seminars, freewheeling discussions, intensive one-on-one mentorship. Advancement is rapid; there are always more responsibilities waiting when you're ready for them, more ideas to pursue if you have the tenacity to follow through. Our flat structure means your ideas matter, not your job title.

Jane Street doesn’t seek outside investment and doesn’t have customers. Our growth comes from hiring and training amazing people and giving them the tools they need to innovate.

DG:= <Predicting Football Results> with Atass Sports

Click attending of the Facebook event here so we have an idea for numbers for the free food!

The venue of this event has been moved to MS.01!

In week 6, we have a special Discussion Group run in conjunction with our primary sponsor, Atass Sports. This week, Richard Hill will come and discuss the topic of Predicting Football Results, on Monday 11th Feb at 6pm in MS.01.

This topic is suitable for first years and above.

For as long as there has been competitive football, spectators have tried to predict match outcomes in advance - both for entertainment and for financial gain. However, only with the development of modern statistical techniques (coupled with advances in computing) has it become possible to build sophisticated forecasting models that can accurately assess the probability of each possible scoreline. The output of such models can be compared against the "market view" expressed by traders on an online betting exchange, thereby highlighting promising betting opportunities.

The Warwick Maths Society is sponsored by Atass Sports. For more information on Atass, and for opportunities for internships and graduate programmes, visit Atass-Sports.co.uk or contact Richard Hill at rich.hill@atassltd.co.uk

ATASS Sports is a statistical research consultancy providing quality modelling and analysis for the sports industry. Atass combines expertise in statistical analysis and research with in-depth sports knowledge, to provide statistical forecasting, probability evaluation and enhanced understanding of professional sports.
