Applied Math Colloquium - Bengt Fornberg

Feb. 7, 2020

Bengt Fornberg, Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder Euler-Maclaurin without analytic derivatives We consider here the Euler-Maclaurin (EM) formulas in the context of approximating infinite sums. If the function to be summed can be integrated analytically, these formulas provide highly accurate asymptotic expansions for the difference between the...

Applied Math Colloquium - Katie Oliveras

Jan. 31, 2020

Katie Oliveras, Department of Mathematics, Seattle University Measuring Water Waves: Using Pressure to Reconstruct Wave Profiles Euler's equations describe water-waves on the surface of an ideal fluid. In this talk, I will discuss an inverse problem related to measuring water-waves using pressure sensors placed inside the fluid. Using a non-local...

Applied Math Colloquium - Jeremy Hoskins

Jan. 24, 2020

Jeremy Hoskins, Department of Mathematics, Yale University Elliptic PDEs on regions with corners Many of the boundary value problems frequently encountered in the simulation of physical problems (electrostatics, wave propagation, fluid dynamics in small devices, etc.) can be solved by reformulating them as boundary integral equations. This approach reduces the...

Applied Math Colloquium - Dan Larremore

Jan. 17, 2020

Dan Larremore, Department of Computer Science, University of Colorado Boulder Complex Networks, Math, and Malaria: From Evolution to Epidemiology Progress in the global battle for malaria elimination has flatlined since 2015, with the single-cell P. falciparum parasite killing one child for every minute of the year. Some of this plateau...

Applied Math Colloquium - Leonid Berlyand

Dec. 6, 2019

Leonid Berlyand, Department of Mathematics, Penn State University PDE models of Active Matter In this talk we attempt to demonstrate how mathematical analysis could be helpful in the study of active matter, with the focus on active gels and cell motility. We first discuss mathematical challenges and developments of novel...

Applied Math Colloquium - Katherine Morrison

Nov. 8, 2019

Katherine Morrison, School of Mathematical Sciences, University of Northern Colorado Predicting neural network dynamics from graph structure Neural networks often exhibit complex patterns of activity that are shaped by the intrinsic structure of the network. For example, spontaneous sequences of neural activity have been observed in cortex and hippocampus, and...

Applied Math Colloquium - Stephen Pankavich

Nov. 1, 2019

Stephen Pankavich, Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Colorado School of Mines Kinetic Models of Collisionless Plasmas Collisionless plasmas arise in a variety of settings, ranging from magnetically confined plasmas for thermonuclear research to space plasmas in planetary magnetospheres and solar winds. The two fundamental models that describe such phenomena...

Applied Math Colloquium - Maria Kazachenko

Oct. 25, 2019

Maria Kazachenko Department of Astrophysics and Planetary Science (National Solar Observatory), University of Colorado Boulder Data-driven Models of the Solar Corona Magnetic Fields: Present and Future The most violent space weather events, eruptive solar flares and coronal mass ejections, are driven by the release of free magnetic energy stored in...
