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
Shibi Feng - Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Mar 1, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:00am
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Perlstein Hall, Room 108
We introduce a dynamic model of the default waterfall of derivatives CCPs and propose a risk-sensitive method for sizing the initial margin (IM), and the default fund (DF) and its allocation among clearing members. Using a Markovian structure model of joint credit migrations, our... read more
David Gerard - Department of Statistics, University of Chicago
Feb 23, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Robert A. Pritzker Science Center, Room 152
Modern genomics has revolutionized how we answer questions about evolution, population dynamics, medicine, and plant and animal breeding. To answer these questions, we must first be able to detect and quantify (or "genotype") differences in individual genomes. Many scientists have used next... read more
