Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Siegel Hall Auditorium, Room 118
When numbers are added in the usual way, "carries" occur. These carries form a Markov chain with an "amazing" transition matrix. Strangely, this same matrix occurs in analyzing the usual method of shuffling cards and in the mathematical analysis of fractals. Diaconis will explain all of this in "... read more

Jean-Christophe Nave - Department of Mathematics and Statistics, McGill University
Apr 17, 2017 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 104
There are two fundamental numerical challenges associated with solving fluid flow problems involving multiple fluids/components/phases/scales: (1) solving PDEs with discontinuous coefficients and interface conditions; (2) evolving in time the geometry, e.g., the interface between the... read more

Shidong Jiang - Department of Mathematical Sciences, New Jersey Institute of Technology
Apr 10, 2017 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 104
The speaker will present a second kind integral equation (SKIE) formulation for calculating the electromagnetic modes of optical waveguides, where the unknowns are only on material interfaces. The resulting numerical algorithm can handle optical waveguides with a large number of inclusions of... read more

Despina Stasi, Research Professor - Illinois Institute of Technology, Applied Mathematics Department
Apr 3, 2017 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering, Room 104
The speaker considers two separate interactions of Probability and Algebra. First the speaker studies Erdos-Renyi-type random monomial ideals and their properties. The speaker will also briefly touch on the application of a well-known randomized algorithm to problems in Computational Algebra.
