### Points based partial ranking

I want to rank a population $P=\{P_1,\ldots,P_n\}$. I am given a set $R=\{R_1,\ldots,R_k\}$ of partial rankings. The partial rankings may have varying sizes (e.g. the first ranking ranks only 8 ...

### What are applications of asymptotic freeness of random matrices?

In around 1990 Voiculescu showed asymptotic freeness of certain random matrices, i.e., free independence when the matrix size goes to infinity. Since then this link between free probability and random ...

### Application of Yamabe and Liouville type equation

Let $\Omega$ be a domain in $\mathbb{R}^n$. I am interested in the following critical elliptic partial differential equations (PDEs): The Yamabe Type Equation (for $n>2$): -\...

### Do the exceptional root systems arise in the real world?

I am looking for a list of real world examples where the exceptional roots systems $E_6, E_7, E_8, F_4$, and $G_2$, and their associated Lie algebras and Lie groups, arise. To make this question a ...

### What are some nice uses of ultraproducts/ultrapowers?

Motivated by a recent post (Non-definability of graph 3-colorability in first-order logic), I was wondering: what are some nice arguments based on ultraproducts? I don't mind definability results, but ...

### Does there exist a Python package that samples random special unitary matrices such that the matrices are parameterized

For reference, the linked paper is Composite parameterization and Haar measure for all unitary and special unitary groups by Christoph Spengler, Marcus Huber and Beatrix C. Hiesmayr (J. Math. Phys. 53,...

### Applications of maximal surfaces in Lorentz spaces

I have been working on minimal surfaces, only recently learnt about maximal surfaces and "maxfaces" in Lorentz spaces. I can clearly see the mathematical motivations. But I wonder if zero-...

### Applications of the Dold-Kan correspondence

The Dold-Kan correspondence says essentially that simplicial abelian groups and nonnegative chain complexes of abelian groups are equivalent objects. While this is a very natural statement, I am not ...

### Journals of applied mathematics with an economics bent?

I'm asking here instead of the economics stackexchange because I'm interested more in the applied mathematics part, instead of just the economics; I'm interested in seeing what new research is being ...

### Can there be an application of discrete mathematics in PDEs, mainly the ones used in hydrodynamics?

Can there be applications of graph theory, combinatorics etc. in PDEs mainly hydrodynamics? Tried my luck with Google's search engine, didn't show much info. I guess you can try to use these features ...

### Which consequences can be deduced from this peculiar property of tetration?

Recently (assuming radix-$10$), I showed that, for any $a \in \mathbb{N}_{0}$ that is not a multiple of $10$, there exists a unique value $V(a) \in \mathbb{N}_{0}$ which corresponds to the number of ...

### Mathematicians learning from applications to other fields

Once upon a time a speaker at the weekly Applied Mathematics Colloquium at MIT (one of two weekly colloquia in the math department (but the other one is not called "pure")) said researchers ...

### Longest increasing subsequence as measure of randomness

Although I am by no means an applied mathematician, I like to occasionally explain applications of the math I teach to real world problems. Right now I am teaching some students about longest ...

### Surprising applications of the theory of games?

I am currently studying the applications of games in quantum information theory and related fields and I am aware of its uses in places like model theory and set theory. So I was curious, what are ...

### Would efficient factoring have any *other* useful applications?

This question is certainly somewhat opinion-based, but hopefully not hopelessly so. The granddaddy of all applications for an efficient period finding or factoring capability (e.g. Shor's algorithm) ...

### Applications of complex exponential

In calculus we learn about many applications of real exponentials like $e^x$ for bacteria growth, radioactive decay, compound interest, etc. These are very simple and direct applications. My question ...

### Interesting and surprising applications of the Ising Model

One of the most famous models in physics is the Ising model, invented by Wilhelm Lenz as a PhD problem to his student Ernst Ising. The one-dimensional version of it was solved in Ising's thesis in ...

### Listing applications of the SVD

The SVD (singular value decomposition) is taught in many linear algebra courses. It's taken for granted that it's important. I have helped teach a linear algebra course before, and I feel like I need ...

### How to measure perceived note similarity in music / simplicity of ratios?

I have discovered a method to measure the similarity of two successive musical notes which I wanted to share with a question: It is known in music theory that two successive pitches $a,b$ which sound “...

### Applications of $FP_\infty$ groups preserving direct systems

In [1], the author proves that given a group $G$ and a directed system $(M_\lambda)_\lambda$ of $G$-modules, the induced maps $$\varinjlim H^k(G,M_\lambda) \to H^k(G,\varinjlim M_\lambda)$$ are ...
