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

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
Chao Tang - Center for Quantitative Biology, Peking University
Mar 5, 2018 - 12:50pm to 1:50pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 032
Precise and robust patterns emerge in biology, especially during development. Dissecting the genetic interactions that lead to these patterns has been the corner stone in developmental biology. This is usually done by observing changes in the pattern when perturbing the system, e.g., by deletions... read more
