Mathematical Biology Seminar: Competition dynamics of phytoplankton species in eutrophic water columns

Speaker: Professor Adrian Lam, Ohio State University Abstract: The paradox of the plankton highlights the apparent contradiction between Gause’s law of competitive exclusion and the observed diversity of phytoplankton. We are interested in the dynamics phytoplankton populations in competition for light in a eutrophic water column. In the first part of the talk, we analyze … Continue reading Mathematical Biology Seminar: Competition dynamics of phytoplankton species in eutrophic water columns

PADS seminar: How Does Tempering Affect the Local and Global Properties of Fractional Brownian Motion?

Speaker: Farxad Sabzikar, Iowa State University Abstract: In this talk, we discuss the effects of tempering the power-law kernel of the moving average representation of a fractional Brownian motion (fBm) on some local and global properties of this Gaussian stochastic process. Tempered fractional Brownian motion (TFBM) and tempered fractional Brownian motion of the second kind (TFBMII) … Continue reading PADS seminar: How Does Tempering Affect the Local and Global Properties of Fractional Brownian Motion?

Discrete Math Seminar: Uniform Turán density

Speaker:  Samuel Mohr, Masaryk Univerisity Abstract: In the early 1980s, Erdős and Sós initiated the study of the classical Turán problem with a uniformity condition: the uniform Turán density of a hypergraph HHH is the infimum over all ddd for which any sufficiently large hypergraph with the property that all its linear-size subhyperghraphs have density … Continue reading Discrete Math Seminar: Uniform Turán density
