Yicong Huang - Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Feb 22, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:00am
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Perlstein Hall, Room 108
We consider a parameter estimation problem  for one dimensional stochastic heat equations, when data is sampled discretely in time or spatial component. We establish some general results on derivation of consistent and asymptotically normal estimators based on computation of the \(p\)-... 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

Alexandr Kostochka - Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Mar 5, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
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

Nicholas Syring - University of Illinois at Chicago
Feb 20, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:40pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 241
Detection of an image boundary when the pixel intensities are measured with noise is an important problem in image segmentation, with numerous applications in medical imaging and engineering. From a statistical point of view, the challenge is that likelihood-based methods require modeling the pixel... read more

Sayar Karmakar - Department of Statistics, University of Chicago
Feb 19, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104
The term "time-varying (tv) coefficient models" refers to the collection of statistical models where the unknown coefficients/parameters vary across time. As an introduction, we will highlight the vast applicability of simultaneous inference for these parametric functions. The estimation and the... read more

Elizabeth Gross - Department of Mathematics, San Jose State University
Feb 16, 2018 - 1:50pm to 2:55pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Colloquia - Robert A. Pritzker Science Center, Room 152
Systems biology focuses on modeling complex biological systems, such as metabolic and cell signaling networks. These biological networks are modeled with polynomial dynamical systems. Analyzing these systems at steady-state results in algebraic varieties that live in high-dimensional spaces. By... read more
