Jianlin Xia - Purdue University
Oct 20, 4:40pm to 5:55pm
Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - E1 104
Abstract: In numerical computations and engineering simulations, solving large dense linear systems is usually the major cost. Examples include discretized integral equations, Schur complements in direct factorizations of sparse matrices, radial basis function interpolations, spectral... read more

Applied Mathematics - Seminar - E1 242
Abstract: This presentation includes two models that independently analyze the morphological stability of tumor spheroids. The interface is being modeled as an elastic membrane which has a bending rigidity dependent on the curvature. An investigation is being performed on how various physical... read more

Chemistry - Colloquia - LS 111
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is caused by the death of dopamine producing neurons which leads to tremors and slowness of movement. The primary pathological event appears to be the misfolding and subsequent aggregation of α-synuclein (AS) which is an intrinsically disordered protein (IDP) of 140... read more

Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - E1 104
Abstract: During his study of binary quadratic forms ax^2 + bxy + cy^2 in the late 1800s, A.A. Markoff introduced necessary and sufficient conditions on a reduced form F so that its minimum is less than 3. He phrased his condition in terms of certain forbidden patterns of a... read more

Phyics - Colloquia - 111 Life Sciences Building
A multiscale theoretical and computational methodology will be discussed for studying biomolecular systems across multiple length and time scales. The approach provides a systematic connection between all-atom molecular dynamics, coarse-grained modeling, and mesoscopic phenomena. At the heart of... read more
