Upcoming Events

Shu Wang - College of Applied Sciences, Beijing University of Technology
Mar 21, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
I will discuss the asymptotic limit problems on some models arising from applied sciences such as semiconductor and plasma. The models include drift diffusion models and PNP models, etc, which usually concern small parameter regimes. Some new results on rigorous limits like quasi neutral limits are... read more

Stefan Metzger - Department of Mathematics, Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen–Nurnberg
Mar 22, 2018 - 12:50pm to 1:50pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 119
The rheology of fluids may be heavily affected by dissolved polymers. To describe this effect, a thermodynamically consistent micro-macro model for two-phase flow with dilute polymeric solutions is derived via combining a phase-field approach for the description of the fluids with a FENE-dumbbell... read more

René Carmona - Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering, Princeton University
Mar 26, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Lecture - Hermann Hall Ballroom
Motivated by a few concrete examples such as bird flocking, congestion for crowd motion, and bee swarming, we introduce the mean field game paradigm; and we present the underpinnings of the original analytic approach based on partial differential equations, and the probabilistic approach based on... read more

Mimi Dai - Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, University of Illinois at Chicago
Mar 8, 2018 - 12:50pm to 1:50pm
undefined - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 119
In this talk we will review classical results on determining modes for fluid equations and present a slightly different approach where we start with a time-dependent determining wavenumber defined for each individual trajectory and then study its dependence on the force. While in some cases... read more
Fred Hickernell - Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Mar 6, 2018 - 12:45pm to 1:45pm
Center for Interdisciplinary Scientific Computation (CISC) - Seminar - Stuart Building, Room 104
Efficient Monte Carlo Simulations Monte Carlo simulations consist of generating a large number of possible scenarios by computer for the purpose of computing the population averages, quantiles, and probabilities. Applications arise in a variety of fields including financial risk analysis, logistics... read more
Alexandr Kostochka - Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Mar 5, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
Dvořák and Postle introduced DP-coloring to answer a question of Borodin on list-coloring of planar graphs. Formally, a DP-\(k\)-coloring of a graph \(G\) is not exactly a coloring, but is an independent set in an auxiliary graph \(H(G,k)\). However, DP-coloring has many properties... read more
