History of Adams and other Cambridge mathematicians

Time:2022.11.14 (Monday) 19:20-20:55

Venue:West Lecture Theatre

Organizer:Qiuzhen College, Tsinghua University

Speaker:Siu-Pro Lam


Siu-Pro Lam, a former graduate student of Prof J. Frank Adams, with research interests in Unstable Algebras over the Steenrod Algebra, Representation theory of Compact Lie Groups and Equivariant K-Theory.


Steenrod proposed the problem of realizing algebras as the cohomology algebras of topological spaces. This problem is hard. The solution is obtained through the works of many algebraic topologists over nearly 5 decades. Our aim is to give a report on the contribution on the algebraic side of the works by various Cambridge mathematicians in various period.

      How to Bridge the Empirical and Theoretical Asset Pricing Models?

      讲座摘要Using an augmented covariance matrix as a bridge, we prove that the covariance matrix of asset returns can be isomorphic to a block diagonalized matrix, which enables market portfolio as the first principal component by a quasi-PCA. This framework provides a bridge to connect the empirical and theoretical asset pricing models, and provides a novel explanation for the failure of estimate...
