### Kasso Okoudjou, Tufts University, On the HRT Conjecture

ZoomGiven a non-zero square-integrable function $g$ and $\Lambda=\{(a_k, b_k)\}_{k=1}^N \subset \mathbb{R}^2$ let $\mathcal{G}(g, \Lambda)=\{e^{2\pi i b_k \cdot}g(\cdot - a_k)\}_{k=1}^N.$ The Heil-Ramanathan-Topiwala (HRT) Conjecture is the question of whether $\mathcal{G}(g, \Lambda)$ is linearly independent. For the last two decades, very little progress has been made in settling the conjecture. In the first part of the talk,…
