Mykhaylo Shkolnikov - Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering, Princeton University
Aug 23, 2018 - 11:25am to 12:45pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - TBD
In this talk, I will present the recent advances in the study of particle systems with singular interaction through hitting times. Such systems appear naturally in the mathematical models for neuron cells, supercooled liquids, credit networks, etc. In contrast to the previous research, this work (i... read more

Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
This work considers an optimal inventory control problem using a long-term average criterion. In absence of ordering, the inventory process is modeled by a one-dimensional diffusion on some interval of \((-\infty, \infty)\) with general drift and diffusion coefficients and boundary points that are... read more

J, Thomas Beale - Department of Mathematics, Duke University
Sep 10, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
Finite difference methods are awkward for solving boundary value problems, such as the Dirichlet problem, with general boundaries, but they are well suited for interface problems, which have prescribed jumps across a general interface or boundary. The two problems can be connected through... read more

Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 119
An affine semigroup \(S\) is a subset of \(\mathbb Z_{\geq 0}^k\) that is closed under vector addition, and a factorization of \(a\in S\) is an expression of \(a\) as a sum of generators of \(S\). The delta set of \(a\) is a set of positive integers determined by the ``missing factorization lengths... read more
