PADS Seminar: Recent Developments in Parabolic Uniform Rectifiability

Speaker: Simon Bortz, University of Alabama Abstract: In the 1980’s harmonic analysis was being rapidly adapted to `rough’ settings. Among the important early developments was the proof of the L^2 boundedness of the (principal value) Cauchy integral operator on a Lipschitz graph due to Coifman, McIntosh and Meyer. Soon after Coifman, David and Meyer extended this … Continue reading PADS Seminar: Recent Developments in Parabolic Uniform Rectifiability

Mathematical Biology Seminar: Age-Structured Population Models of Tissue Organization

Speaker: Anayse Miller, Iowa State University (Mathematics) Abstract: Age-Structured Population Models of Tissue OrganizationTissue disorganization is present in many diseases, including cancer. In the case of cancer, genetic mutations cause tissue to go from a healthy steady-state to an unhealthy system. In order to gain a better understanding of this process, we first must have … Continue reading Mathematical Biology Seminar: Age-Structured Population Models of Tissue Organization

Mathematical Logic Seminar: How Effective is Forcing?

Speaker: Henry Klatt Title:  How Effective is Forcing? Abstract:  Since Cohen’s development of forcing to demonstrate the independence of the Continuum Hypothesis from ZFC, the technique has become ubiquitous within set theory. Given how essential forcing is, it is natural to ask questions along the lines of “how constructive is this process?” or “how close … Continue reading Mathematical Logic Seminar: How Effective is Forcing?

Discrete Math Seminar: Ehrhart theory of paving and panhandle matroid polytopes

Speaker: Daniel McGinnis (Iowa State University) Title: Ehrhart theory of paving and panhandle matroid polytopes Ehrhart theory is a topic in geometric combinatorics which involves the enumeration of lattice points in integral dilates of polytopes. We introduce panhandle matroids, which generalize the previously studied uniform matroids and minimal connected matroids. We provide a formula for … Continue reading Discrete Math Seminar: Ehrhart theory of paving and panhandle matroid polytopes

Junior Analysis Seminar: Optimal Line Packings with Heisenberg Symmetry

Speaker: Herionexy Mounier Title of the Talk : Optimal Line Packings with Heisenberg Symmetry Abstract : Zauner’s Conjecture has been a subject of study in Frame Theory for several years. It states that for any complex Hilbert space of dimension d, there exists a d x d^2 equiangular tight frame (ETF). However, we proved a … Continue reading Junior Analysis Seminar: Optimal Line Packings with Heisenberg Symmetry

AWM-MOCA Speaker Series: Induced subgraphs and tree decompositions

Speaker: Prof. Maria Chudnovsky, Princeton University Abstract: Tree decompositions are a powerful tool in both structural graph theory and graph algorithms. Many hard problems become tractable if the input graph is known to have a tree decomposition of bounded “width”. Exhibiting a particular kind of a tree decomposition is also a useful way to describe the structure of a graph. Tree … Continue reading AWM-MOCA Speaker Series: Induced subgraphs and tree decompositions
