Sumanta Acharya - Department of Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering, Illinois Institute of Technology
Oct 24, 2017 - 12:45pm to 1:45pm
Center for Interdisciplinary Scientific Computation (CISC) - Seminar - Robert A. Pritzker Science Center, Room 129
Film Cooling in Gas Turbines—Exploring Physics and Uncertainties Modern gas turbine airfoils are subject to gas temperatures in excess of 30000 F that are well above the material limits for reliable operation. The airfoils have to be therefore actively cooled to prevent engine failure. Film cooling... read more
Matthew Dixon - Stuart School of Business, Illinois Institute of Technology
Oct 24, 2017 - 11:30am to 12:30pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 032
The problem of estimating the dimensionality of a model occurs in various forms in applied statistics, machine learning and econometrics. Popular approaches include Akaike’s Information Criterion (AIC), cross-validation and Minimum Description Length (MDL) among others. This talk begins by... read more
Joshua Cooper - Department of Mathematics, University of South Carolina
Oct 23, 2017 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
One can construct a useful metric on genome sequences by computing minimal-length sortings of (signed) permutations by reversals. Hannenhalli and Pevzner famously showed that such sorting sequences are essentially equivalent to a certain sequences of operations - "vertex pressing'' - on bicolored (... read more
