Sonja Petrovic, Associate Professor, Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Oct 4, 2019 - 10:00am to 11:15am
College of Science, Applied Mathematics - Seminar - RE 242
Many computer algebra systems offer excellent algorithms for manipulation of polynomials. But despite great success in the field, many algebraic problems have bad worst-case complexity.  In prior work with Jesus De Loera and Despina Stasi, we imported an efficient randomized sampling algorithm... read more

Jelena Mihajlovic-Karic - Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Sep 20, 2019 - 10:00am to 11:15am
College of Science, Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 242
In response to the increased interest in machine learning to solve mathematical problems combined with the complexity inherent in computing Gröbner bases, we create a Gröbner basis database. Through this database we aim to provide a platform where researchers and practitioners can: obtain accurate... read more

Jan 15, 2019 - 12:45pm to 1:45pm
College of Science, Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center 102
In this talk I introduce a generic, statistical model of longitudinal/panel network data analyzable with existing tools for popular, single-observation network models. The existing network models have been used since the 1980s to describe social networks of a fixed set of people whose friendships... read more

Mateja Raic - Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, University of Illinois at Chicago
Nov 6, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:00am
College of Science, Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 102
We study networks from a point of view of exponential random graph models. This flexible and versatile statistical family comes equipped with tools to perform inferential statistics, however the standard toolbox assumes large sample sizes and the use of asymptotic theory. In networks, this... read more

College of Science, Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 119
An affine semigroup \(S\) is a subset of \(\mathbb Z_{\geq 0}^k\) that is closed under vector addition, and a factorization of \(a\in S\) is an expression of \(a\) as a sum of generators of \(S\). The delta set of \(a\) is a set of positive integers determined by the ``missing factorization lengths... read more

Annie Raymond, Acting Assistant Professor - Department of Mathematics, University of Washington
Sep 15, 2016 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
College of Science, Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 242
The speaker considers the problem of finding sum of squares (sos) expressions to establish the non-negativity of a symmetric polynomial over a discrete hypercube whose coordinates are indexed by k-element subsets of [n]. The speaker develops a variant of the Gatermann-Parrilo symmetry-reduction... read more

Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering, room 242
This talk will discuss the recent comment, written jointly with Vishesh Karwa, on the paper with the same title by Ji and Jin. Ji and Jin collected, cleaned and summarized in various ways citation and coauthorship networks for statisticians. They performed several descriptive analyses of the... read more
