Nicholas Syring - University of Illinois at Chicago
Feb 20, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:40pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 241
Detection of an image boundary when the pixel intensities are measured with noise is an important problem in image segmentation, with numerous applications in medical imaging and engineering. From a statistical point of view, the challenge is that likelihood-based methods require modeling the pixel... read more
Sayar Karmakar - Department of Statistics, University of Chicago
Feb 19, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
The term "time-varying (tv) coefficient models" refers to the collection of statistical models where the unknown coefficients/parameters vary across time. As an introduction, we will highlight the vast applicability of simultaneous inference for these parametric functions. The estimation and the... read more
Elizabeth Gross - Department of Mathematics, San Jose State University
Feb 16, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Robert A. Pritzker Science Center, Room 152
Systems biology focuses on modeling complex biological systems, such as metabolic and cell signaling networks. These biological networks are modeled with polynomial dynamical systems. Analyzing these systems at steady-state results in algebraic varieties that live in high-dimensional spaces. By... read more
