Emanuele Ventura,  M.Sc., will defend the dissertation "Geometry of Real Tensors and Phylogenetics" on 9 January 2017 at 15 at the Aalto University School of Science, lecture hall M1, Otakaari 1, Espoo.

The aim of dissertation was to study algebraic and geometric properties of algebraic varieties that are relevant to multidimensional matrices, or tensors, and computational biology. Algebraic varieties are the solutions to systems of polynomial equations. They are powerful in encoding applied problems and very useful across all the sciences.
