This talk took place at the second MeetUp of Algorithm Israel 🙂
It was a pleasure to host Clara Shikhelman, who talked to us about the new and clever ways in which graph theory is used in the crypto-currency domain.
The talk is in hebrew, and assumes basic background in graph theory.
The emerging world of Cryptocurrency brings with it exciting new questions – technological, financial and algorithmical. In this talk we will introduce some basic ideas and currencies beyond Bitcoin together with the algorithms behind them. We will discuss different data structures, how a community can reach consensus and why randomness is our friend.
Clara is pursuing her PhD in combinatorics and graph theory (http://www.math.tau.ac.il/~clarashk/), with Prof. Noga Alon as her advisor, frequently visits universities such as Princeton and Harvard and works as a researcher for the IOTA foundation (https://iota.org/). In her free time Clara likes to give lectures about hidden mathematical gems (https://youtu.be/Kw7f5VBfMzY) in well known books such as “Alice in Wonderland”.
