Nonlinear Waves Seminar - Justin Cole

Dec. 10, 2019

Justin Cole, Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder Soliton Dynamics in the Korteweg-de Vries Equation with Nonzero Boundary Conditions Inspired by recent experiments, the Korteweg-de Vries equation with nonzero Dirichlet boundary conditions is considered. Two types of boundary data are examined: step up (which generates a rarefaction wave)...

Math Bio Seminar - Dan Messenger

Dec. 10, 2019

Dan Messenger, Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder Aggregation-Diffusion Phenomena in Domains with Boundaries This talk relates to a class of mathematical models for the collective behaviour of autonomous agents, or particles, in general spatial domains, where particles exhibit pair-wise interactions and may be subject to environmental forces...

Stats, Optimization, and Machine Learning Seminar - Amir Ajalloeian, Maddela Avinash, Ayoub Ghriss

Dec. 10, 2019

Amir Ajalloeian; Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering; University of Colorado Boulder Inexact Online Proximal-gradient Method for Time-varying Convex Optimization This paper considers an online proximal-gradient method to track the minimizers of a composite convex function that may continuously evolve over time. The online proximal-gradient method is "inexact,'' in...

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...

Nonlinear Waves Seminar - Patrick Sprenger

Nov. 5, 2019

n Patrick Sprenger, Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder Generalized Riemann problems in dispersive hydrodynamics Nonlinear, dispersive wave phenomena are observed in a variety of physical contexts in nature and the laboratory. Mathematically, the dynamics are described by a dispersive hydrodynamic system---conservation laws modified by dispersion. Oftentimes, a...
