Yizhi Zhang, Graduate Student - Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Sep 20, 2016 - 1:50pm to 3:05pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 121
In this talk, the speaker briefly introduces the setup of numerical approximation to univariate integration problems via different algorithms. The talk will contain finished results of rigorous proof of trapezoidal rule and in-progress results of Simpson's rule. Numerical examples are given to... read more

Antonio Auffinger, Assistant Professor - Department of Mathematics, Northwestern University
Sep 19, 2016 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 106
Spin glasses were introduced back in the 60's to address the behavior of magnetic alloys, such as AuFe or CuMg. Their rigorous treatment gave rise to a class of models, whose analysis by both physicists and mathematicians has grown into one of the most fascinating fields of statistical mechanics.... read more

Benjamin Reiniger, Visiting Assistant Professor - Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Sep 16, 2016 - 12:50pm to 1:40pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering, room 106
An \(r\)-augmented tree is a rooted tree plus \(r\) edges added from each leaf to ancestors. For \(d, g, r\in\mathbb{N}\), the speaker constructs a bipartite \(r\)-augmented complete \(d\)-ary tree having girth at least \(g\). The height of such trees must grow extremely rapidly in terms of girth.... read more
