Andrei Tarfulea - Department of Mathematics, University of Chicago
Feb 13, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Robert A. Pritzker Science Center, Room 240
Understanding the behavior of solutions to physically motivated evolution equations is one of the most important areas of applied analysis. Developing strong bounds and asymptotics are crucial for anticipating the behavior of simulations, simplifying the methods needed to model the physical... read more

Sergey Nadtochiy - Department of Mathematics, University of Michigan
Feb 12, 2018 - 3:15pm to 4:15pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
In this talk, I will analyze a system of particles with singular interaction through hitting times. Such systems have been used in Neuroscience, but are also well suited for modeling Systemic Risk. I will discuss the latter application and will proceed to the analysis of a large-population limit of... read more

Vishesh Karwa - Department of Statistics & Department of Computer Science, Harvard University
Feb 12, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
Stochastic Block models (SBM) with unknown block structure are widely used to detect community structure in real world networks.  SBM comes in many variants, hence it is essential to evaluate the fit of these variants. Testing the goodness-of-fit of such models is a challenging task due to the... read more
