Robert Eisenberg - Rush University Medical Center
Feb 19, 2018 - 3:25pm
Co-sponsored by the Department of Biology and the Center for Interdisciplinary Scientific Computation (CISC) - Colloquia - PS 111
What is different about life? Why do life sciences require different science and mathematics? I address these issues starting from the obvious: all of life is inherited from genes. Twenty thousand genes of say 30 atoms each control an animal of ~1025 atoms. How is that possible? Answer: the... read more

undefined - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 119
A packing \(k\)-coloring of a graph \(G\) is a partition of the vertex set \(V(G)\) into sets \(V_1,\ldots,V_k\), such that for each \(i\), the distance between any two distinct \(x\) and \(y\) in \(V_i\) is at least \(i+1\). The packing chromatic number of a graph \(G\) is the minimum \(k\) such... read more

Mikhail Langovoy - Machine Learning & Optimization Laboratory, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne
Feb 21, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
We present a novel approach to design, analysis, and control of large-scale connected autonomous learning systems. We describe our resent results on methodology and applications of statistical learning and data science to cyber-physical systems in advanced manufacturing, to materials science, to... read more

Edward Remsen - Associate Professor, Mund-Lagowski Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Bradley University
Feb 21, 2018 - 3:15pm
Department of Chemistry - Colloquia - PS 111
ABSTRACT Understanding the adsorptive interactions occurring at wafer, pad, and abrasive surfaces is a generally accepted as a key requirement for controlling CMP processes. Characterization of adsorptive interactions at a molecular level requires a detailed analysis of the chemical functional... 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

Mohammad Asadi - Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering, Illinois Tech
Feb 28, 2018 - 3:15pm
Department of Chemistry - Colloquia - PS 111
Electrochemistry is central to many applications such as water purification, membrane separation, sensors, energy storage and conversion systems. Among different electrochemical systems, energy storage (e.g., batteries) and conversion (hydrogen generation) systems that could harvest energy from... read more

Reed Essick - Fellow, Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics, University of Chicago
Mar 1, 2018 - 3:30pm
Department of Physics - Colloquia - 111 Robert A. Pritzker Science Center Auditorium
The direct detection of Gravitational Waves with kilometer-scale laser interferometers has begun to pay dividends on the decades of both theoretical and instrumental research invested in their development. After spectacularly detecting the first known Binary Black Hole coalescence in September 2015... read more

Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
Dvořák and Postle introduced DP-coloring to answer a question of Borodin on list-coloring of planar graphs. Formally, a DP-\(k\)-coloring of a graph \(G\) is not exactly a coloring, but is an independent set in an auxiliary graph \(H(G,k)\). However, DP-coloring has many properties... read more

Department of Physics - Colloquia - PS 111
More than 30 years ago Richard Feynman suggested the possibility of using quantum computers to simulate quantum physics. Now the technologies necessary to realize this vision are finally emerging. Particle physicists are already trying to apply quantum computing to gain a better understanding of... read more
