Inverse problems involve for example reconstruction of an object based on physical measurements and finding a best model/parameters out of a family given observed data. Typically the corresponding "fo…

For questions about Legendre polynomials, which are solutions to a particular differential equation that frequently arises in physics.

a group $G$ whose elements are invertible $n \times n$ matrices over a field $F$.

a set together with a binary operation on this set. (For questions about the computer algebra system named Magma, use the [magma-cas] tag instead.)

a card game with several variants (Draw, Texas Hold'em, ...), the common goal being to collect face value patterns such as "four of a kind", "full house" or "straight" or all of a suit ("flus…

A technique in geometry (especially algebraic and differential, and by extension to study of pseudo-differential operators) for resolution of singularities. Not to be confused with the formation of si…

A classifying space $BG$ of a topological group $G$ is the quotient of a weakly contractible space $EG$ by a free action of $G$. When $G$ is a discrete group $BG$ has homotopy type of $K(G,1)$ and (co…

In the philosophy of mathematics, intuitionism, or neointuitionism (opposed to preintuitionism), is an approach where mathematics is considered to be purely the result of the constructive mental activ…

The Ricci flow on a Riemannian manifold $(M,g)$ is determined by the geometric evolution equation $\partial_t g_{ij} = -2R_{ij}$ where $R_{ij}$ is the Ricci curvature. The Ricci flow is the main ingre…
