## Probability Seminar - Jamie Mingo (Queen's University)

### Monday, January 21st, 2019

**Time:** 10:00-11:30 a.m. **Place:** Jeffery Hall 319

**Speaker:** Jamie Mingo (Queen's University)

**Title:** Tensor Products of Modules and Vector Spaces.

**Abstract: **This talk will review the construction of the tensor product of modules and its universal property. This property can be used to establish associativity, commutativity over direct sums, and a check for linear independence when our modules are vector spaces. I also hope to give a brief introduction to tensor norms.
