Associative Binary Operations and the Pythagorean Theorem

 Abstract: The Pythagorean Theorem is one of the oldest and most famous results in geometry, perhaps in all of mathematics. The theorem is known to every school- boy and girl. It has been given hundreds of different proofs over the ages. About 20 new proofs were discovered by Dr. Tong and his students alone! In this talk we present a new angle on the Pythagorean theorem (no pun intended). The idea is to derive the well-known formula from certain “obvious” qualitative properties. This novel approach to PT was initiated by L. Berrone in a paper in the American Mathematical Monthly and continued by the speaker. It has the interesting feature of bringing together two very different branches of mathematics, the ancient subject of Euclidean geometry and the much more recent area of functional equations. Along the way, a surprising proof pops out.

Information regarding the Quantun Theory and Matrix Analysis

Here are some sources on quantum information theory.

1- Nielsen's book:

 This is one of the most famous and most cited books in the history (~30200 citations)


2- Majorization in quantum information theory (again this is a paper of Nielsen):


3- Another book is
