Applied Mathematics & Data Science - Seminar - Stuart Building, Room 220
Title & Abstract: TBA
Dec 2
Adilson E. Motter - Northwestern University
Dec 1, 4:40pm to 5:55pm
Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - LS 104
Abstract: An increasing number of systems are now modeled as complex networks of coupled dynamical units. Nonlinearity and high-dimensionality are hallmarks of the dynamics of complex networks but have generally been regarded as obstacles to control. In this presentation, I will discuss... read more

Min Yang - UIC
Nov 24, 4:40pm to 5:55pm
Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - LS 104
Abstract: Designing experiments is an integral part of the scientific process, both for discovery and verification. Resources are almost always scarce, and judicious use of the limited resources is essential. Identifying efficient and optimal designs for data collection is therefore paramount. In... read more

Nov 19, 11:25am to 12:40pm
Applied Mathematics - Seminar - E1 242
Abstract: The Poisson-Nernst-Planck (PNP) equation is a coupled non-linear system of equations used to model ions transport in ions channels. In this work a finite difference scheme that preserve the energy law at a discrete level is of interest. The algorithm is second order in space and we... read more

Ana Rechtman - Université de Strasbourg, France
Nov 17, 4:40pm to 5:55pm
Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - E1 104
Abstract: The topology of a manifold determines if a flow has fixed points, as stated in the Poincaré-Hopf theorem, but if a manifold (oriented) admits a flow without fixed points it also admits a flow without periodic orbits. If the manifold has dimension 2, this assertion is almost trivial. In... read more

Jinyu Huang - IIT
Nov 13, 3:15pm
Applied Mathematics - Seminar - E1 241
Abstract: Matroids are a mathematical structure that generalize the linear independence in vector spaces and acyclic subgraphs in graphs, and have been applied in combinatorial optimization and discrete math. In the matroid secretary problem, a matroid M is given and an adversary assigns a... read more

Francisco Hernandez
Nov 12, 11:45am to 12:40pm
Applied Mathematics - Seminar - E1 242
Abstract: We develop a boundary integral method for computing the forces on a spherical particle in an unsteady viscoelastic flow. We establish a boundary integral equation (BIE) in the Fourier domain using a correspondence principle between Stokes flow and linear ... read more

Marek Rutkowski - University of Sydney
Nov 10, 5:00pm to 6:25pm
Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - E1 104
Abstract: Bielecki and Rutkowski (2014) introduced and studied a generic nonlinear market model, which includes several risky assets, multiple funding accounts and margin accounts. In this talk, we examine the pricing and hedging of contract both from the perspective of the hedger and the... read more

Nov 5, 11:25am to 12:40pm
Applied Mathematics - Seminar - E1 242
Abstract: Microrheology is a relatively new technique that, just like bulk rheology, can be employed to extract mechanical properties of viscoelastic materials. Many such materials, e.g., collagen, manifest anisotropic properties. Different levels of anisotropy (in viscosity) is... read more
