Dynamics and Distributed Computing -
Distributed computing is about finding efficient algorithms that can be run in parallel using as little communication as possible. For instance, if you wanted to coordinate all the cell phones on a network, you would want to use a distributed algorithm. Dynamics is the study of how systems evolve under transformations. For instance, if you wanted to study how atoms in a lattice magnetize, you might look at how the system of all particle arrangements evolves as you apply the symmetries of the lattice and the transformation that moves time forward. In this talk, I will sketch out how dynamics can solve problems from distributed computing and vice versa.
