Starting Fall 2013 I will be a PhD student at the Department of Mathematics, University of Toronto (my advisor will be Bálint Virág). More content will appear here soon.
Previously (2006-2011) I studied mathematics, physics and computer science at University of Warsaw, where I obtained
my M. Sc. degree in mathematics at Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics (my advisor was
Here is my CV (updated April 2013).
More generally, I am interested in mathematics (especially with probabilistic, geometric or combinatorial flavour), theoretical computer science and theoretical physics. In case you are interested, here is a list of courses I have taken during my studies.
- geometric group theory, discrete probability, spectral graph theory
See also Toronto seminar Probability, Geometry and Groups.
Random groups and property (T): Żuk's theorem revisited
accepted to the Journal of London Mathematical Society
Tight Bell inequalities with no quantum violation from qubit unextendible product bases
Phys. Rev. A 85, 042113 (2012)
Universal nonlinear entanglement witnesses (arxiv:1003.0210)
Phys. Rev. A 81, 062318 (2010)
- Here are some notes on spectral graph theory and expanders (for a short course I co-taught in Warsaw in April 2012).
- Short notes on combinatorics of finite fields, Combinatorial Nullstellensatz and finite field Kakeya conjecture (for a course for high school students taught at WWW 8, August 2012).
How to pronounce my name
My name is pronounced [ˈmʲixaw kɔˈtɔfskʲi] (IPA) or like "me-how kotovsky" ("ł" is pronounced like "w" in English and note that the o's in my last name are long).
Apart from science, I am interested, among other things, in books, mountain hiking, music, philosophy, cognitive science, teaching gifted students, improv etc. etc. You can find out more on my personal webpage.
