香港科技大学理学院院长汪扬教授学术报告

报告题目:Can Mathematics Solve Mysteries in Literature?(数学在文学中的应用)

报告时间:4月13日(周五)下午2时-3时

报告地点:教学楼420

报告摘要:

There have been no shortages of controversies in literature, from old questions such as whether Cao Xueqin wrote all 120 chapters of "Dreams of Red Chamber", widely known as the greatest work of Chinese literature, to new questions such as whether Obama actually wrote his autobiography "Dreams From My Father". For mathematicians, it is interesting to ask whether mathematics can be used to settle these controversies. In this talk, I will give an overview on how mathematics can be applied to analyze the "style" of an author and the related field of study called "stylometry". I will show that mathematics can be used to almost definitively settle many such controversies.

报告用中文演讲。欢迎对此感兴趣的教师和学生参加。
