Amanda Redlich - Department of Mathematics, Bowdoin College
Apr 9, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:00am
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 121
Suppose you need to get a cup of coffee before your ten am discrete seminar talk. You see three different cafes on the way to campus. How do you pick which one to go to? This talk will give a simple randomized algorithm that models a natural decision-making process in such contexts, discuss its... read more
Christodoulos Mitillos - Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Apr 3, 2018 - 12:45pm to 1:45pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 119
Graph fall-colouring is the partition of the vertices of a graph into independent dominating sets. A problem is in NP if its solutions can be verified in polynomial time. A problem is NP-complete if it is in NP and every problem in NP can be efficiently converted to an instance of this ... read more
Shan Zhao - Department of Mathematics, University of Alabama
Apr 2, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
The Poisson-Boltzmann Equation (PBE) is a widely used implicit solvent model for the electrostatic analysis of solvated biomolecules. The numerical solution of the PBE is known to be challenging, due to the consideration of discontinuous coefficients, complex geometry of protein structures,... read more
