Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello! I'm Ophir, a junior at Stanford majoring in Computer Science with a concentration in the theory of computation. Specifically, I'm interested in cryptography, complexity theory, and the logical foundations of computation. I'm also an avid classical music lover and a classically-trained pianist for about 14 years. Looking forward to seeing you in class!

A587: Piano Masterclass in Rainstorm Fall 2020 (Dec. 05 - 06, 2020)
If you are an intermediate/advanced classical piano student who is seeking additional feedback on performance or advice for performance or competition preparation, don’t hesitate to sign up! You will have a chance to perform for other attendees as well as myself, and receive feedback and pointers for your performance. Any standard classical repertoire is acceptable. We will also have an open discussion at the end for any questions pertaining to piano study, performance, or competitions. If you would like to perform, please email me at ophirh10@stanford.edu with your repertoire choice. If you would like to sit in to listen, just sign up for the class here! My artistic website can be found at: ohorovitz10.wixsite.com/ophir-horovitz. Hope to see you there!

M588: The Deterministic Finite Automaton (and more) in Rainstorm Fall 2020 (Dec. 05 - 06, 2020)
Take a dive into the Theory of Computation, one of the most exciting subfields of computer science! In this class, you'll learn about how problems in computation can be solved using mathematical objects called “machines,”, and how a specific type of problem allows a simple and beautiful type of machine to solve it. Take this class if you’re interested in discovering more about a fascinating field that lies at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, and logic!
