Xiang Xu - Department of Mathematics & Statistics, Old Dominion University
Oct 15, 2019 - 10:00am to 11:00am
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 122
We study a gradient flow generated by the Landau-de Gennes free energy that describes nematic liquid crystal configurations in the Q-tensor space. This free energy density functional is composed of three quadratic terms as the elastic energy density part, and a singular potential in the bulk part... read more
Jaksa Cvitanic - Division of The Humanities and Social Sciences, California Institute of Technology
Oct 14, 2019 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Siegal Hall, Room 118
We consider a stochastic tournament game in which each player is rewarded based on her rank in terms of the completion time of her own task and is subject to cost of effort. When players are homogeneous and the rewards are purely rank dependent, the equilibrium has a surprisingly explicit... read more
Paul Shin, College of Lake County
Oct 14, 2019 - 12:45pm to 2:00pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - RE 121
This talk will be on a variation of the classical vertex coloring problem in graph theory.  In this problem, we seek to assign a color to each vertex of a graph so that no two adjacent vertices receive the same color (a so-called proper coloring).  List coloring is a well-known variation... read more
