The aim of this short course is to introduce both essential materials and recent developments in tensor analysis systematically, particularly focusing on spectral theory and special tensors. This short course will provide an opportunity for young researchers to learn the current state of art in this area. The contents of the course follow the book below:

Liqun Qi and Ziyan Luo, Tensor Analysis: Spectral Theory and Special Tensors. SIAM, 2017.


The lectures are from April 17 to April 28, 2017, April 16 is for registration, and April 23 is for rest.

There will be two hours of lectures both in the morning and in the afternoon, and one hour of question time in each afternoon.
