Frederick K. H. Phoa, Associate Research Fellow / Assistant Professor - Institute of Statistical Science, Academia Sinica, - Institute of Statistics, National Central University
Sep 26, 2016 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 106
Nature-inspired metaheuristic methods, like the particle swarm optimization and many others, enjoy fast convergence towards optimal solutions via a series of inter-particle communications. Such methods are common for the optimization problem in engineering, but there are few for statistics problems... read more

Yuchen Lu, Graduate Student - Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Sep 27, 2016 - 1:50pm to 3:05pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 121
In this talk, the speaker briefly introduces the software HawkEye, which was developed based on VBA using the Monte Carlo method. Also, the speaker shows the concepts and the algorithms behind this software. Three models are given to demonstrate the power of HawkEye: "Project Cost" model for... read more

Andy Wan, Postdoctoral Fellow - Department of Mathematics and Statistics, McGill University
Oct 12, 2016 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 106
Conservative discretizations are numerical methods which preserve conservation laws of differential equations at the discrete level. Recently, the multiplier method was proposed as a conservative discretization for general ODEs and PDEs. In contrast to symplectic or variational methods, the... read more

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
