Emil Constantinescu - Argonne National Laboratory
Apr 28, 4:40pm
Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - LS 152
Abstract: An important issue in quantifying uncertainty in the simulation of large-scale dynamical processes is to determine statistical models that appropriately account for their physical characteristics or nonstationarity. In this talk we describe a method to derive covariance... read more

Apr 23, 11:25am to 12:40pm
Applied Mathematics - Seminar - SB 107
Systems that present people with information inescapably make editorial judgments in determining what information to show and how to show it. However the editorial values used to make these judgments are generally invisible to users and in many cases even to the engineers who design them. This work... read more

Laura McLay - University of Wisconsin at Madison
Apr 21, 4:40pm
Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - LS 152
Abstract: Covering models are used in a broad spectrum of applications. This talk will first overview various covering models and then focus on covering models and algorithms for emergency medical services. These emergency medical service models reflect multiple partial coverage. Lastly, I will... read more

Jose Rodriguez - University of California, Berkeley
Apr 16, 3:30pm
Applied Mathematics - Seminar - E1 121
Numerical algebraic geometry is a growing area of applied algebra that involves describing solutions of polynomial systems of equations. This area has already had an impact in kinematics, statistics, PDE's, and pure math. In this talk we focus on using numerical algebraic geometry for maximum... read more

Chris Mitillos - IIT Applied Mathematics
Apr 10, 2:00pm
Applied Mathematics - Seminar - E1 room 027
Graph fall-colouring is an intersection of graph colouring and graph domination, whereby we attempt to partition a graph into independent dominating sets. In this talk, we will see various results regarding this type of graph coloring, including constructions of fall-colourable graphs with certain... read more

Applied Mathematics - Seminar - E1 121
Emerging field of phylogenomics integrates two major disciplines: genomics (the study of the structure and function of genes and genomes) and phylogenetics (the study of the hierarchical evolutionary relationships among organisms and their genomes). The goal of phylogenomics is to identify the... read more

Sonja Petrovic - Assistant Professor of Applied Math, IIT
Apr 9, 11:25am to 12:40pm
Applied Mathematics - Seminar - SB 107
Social networks and other large sparse data sets pose significant challenges for statistical inference, as many standard statistical methods for testing model fit are not applicable in such settings. Algebraic statistics offers a theoretically justified approach to goodness-of-fit testing that... read more

Oleksandr Misiats - Purdue University
Apr 7, 4:40pm
Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - LS 152
Abstract: We study the long-time behavior of systems governed by nonlinear reaction-diffusion type equations $du = (Au + f(u))dt + \sigma(u) dW(t)$, where $A$ is an elliptic operator, $f$ and $\sigma$ are nonlinear maps and $W$ is an infinite dimensional nuclear Wiener process. This equation... read more

Charles Wampler - General Motors
Apr 2, 4:40pm
Applied Mathematics - Colloquia, - Seminar - LS 152
Recently, numerical algorithms have been developed for computing cell decompositions of the real points in complex algebraic curves and surfaces. These algorithms operate in the spirit of Morse theory by introducing a real projection and using numerical algebraic geometry to find the critical sets... read more
