Logic Seminar: Statistical constructions in quantum information theory

Speaker: Peter Burton (University of Toronto) Abstract: A nonlocal game is a construction in quantum information theory which provides a mathematical basis for experimental tests of entanglement between particles. We will describe how to recast the formalism of nonlocal games from the standard language of projections on Hilbert spaces into a more concrete ‘statistical’ set-up that … Continue reading Logic Seminar: Statistical constructions in quantum information theory

Mathematical Biology seminar: Multistability and time-periodic spatial patterns in the cross-diffusion SKT model

Speaker: Dr. Cinzia Soresina from Institut für Mathematik und wissenschaftliches Rechnen, Universität Graz (Austria)​ Abstract: The Shigesada-Kawasaki-Teramoto model (SKT) was proposed to account for stable inhomogeneous steady states exhibiting spatial segregation, which describes a situation of coexistence of two competing species. Even though the reaction part does not present the activator-inhibitor structure, the cross-diffusion terms are the … Continue reading Mathematical Biology seminar: Multistability and time-periodic spatial patterns in the cross-diffusion SKT model

Logic Seminar: Models for the Gödel-Kripke logic based on rough sets

Speaker: Laura Gamboa Guzman (Iowa State University) Abstract: The purpose of this talk is to introduce the basic aspects of the rough set theory, its relation with basic modal logic, and how to obtain a 3-valued semantics for the Gödel-Kripke logic based on the algebra of rough sets. Computer scientist Zdzislaw Pawlak introduced the rough … Continue reading Logic Seminar: Models for the Gödel-Kripke logic based on rough sets

Mathematics Colloquium: Pattern Avoiding Permutations Something Old, Something New

Speaker: Mikos Bona (University of Florida) Abstract:  The theory of permutation patterns studies subsequences of permutations that behave in a prescribed way. It is a relatively young field that has seen tremendous progress in the last 30 years. In the first half of the talk, we will give an overview of the most important results … Continue reading Mathematics Colloquium: Pattern Avoiding Permutations Something Old, Something New

PADS Seminar: The Neumann problem in graph Lipschitz domains in the plane

Speaker: Virginia Naibo (Kansas State University) Abstract: New aspects of the solvability of the classical Neumann boundary value problem in a graph Lipschitz domain in the plane will be presented. When the domain is the upper half-plane and the boundary data is assumed to belong to weighted  Lebesgue or weighted Lorentz spaces, it will be … Continue reading PADS Seminar: The Neumann problem in graph Lipschitz domains in the plane

PADS Seminar: The Persistence Landscapes of Affine Fractals

Speaker: Lee Przybylski (ISU) Abstract: We develop a method for calculating the persistence landscapes of affine fractals using the parameters of the corresponding transformations. Given an iterated function system of affine transformations that satisfies a certain compatibility condition, we prove that there exists an affine transformation acting on the space of persistence landscapes which intertwines … Continue reading PADS Seminar: The Persistence Landscapes of Affine Fractals

Mathematical Biology Seminar: Within-host kinetics of parainfluenza virus infection

Speaker: Lubna Pinky, Eastern Virginia Medical School Abstract: Human parainfluenza viruses (HPIVs) cause acute respiratory infections and can lead to the hospitalization of children. HPIV infection severity may vary due to dose, strain, patient, and whether the infection initiates within the upper or lower respiratory tract. There is a need to determine how the rates … Continue reading Mathematical Biology Seminar: Within-host kinetics of parainfluenza virus infection

ISU Logic Seminar: Closed groups generated by generic measure preserving transformations

Speaker: Slawomir Solecki (Cornell) Abstract: The behavior of a measure preserving transformation, even a generic one, is highly non-uniform. In contrast to this observation, a different picture of a very uniform behavior of the closed group generated by a generic measure preserving transformation T T T has emerged. This picture included substantial evidence that pointed … Continue reading ISU Logic Seminar: Closed groups generated by generic measure preserving transformations
