Math Bio Seminar - Jimmy Garnier

Nov. 12, 2019

Jimmy Garnier, Laboratoire de mathématiques, Université de Savoie Genetic and demographic consequences of fast propagation Dispersal is one of the critical processes during the spreading stage of biological invasions. In particular, long-distance dispersal events may increase the dispersibility of invasive species and thus accelerate the spread of the biological invasion...

Stats, Optimization, and Machine Learning Seminar - Sriram Sankaranarayanan

Nov. 12, 2019

Sriram Sankaranarayanan, Department of Computer Science, University of Colorado Boulder Reasoning about Neural Feedback Systems Data-driven components such as feedforward neural networks are increasingly being used in critical safety systems such as autonomous vehicles and closed-loop medical devices. Neural networks compute nonlinear functions. Relatively tiny networks present enormous challenges for...

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...

Christopher Bell: "Race, Gender and Inclusiveness in Pop Culture"

Engineers, like everyone, are influenced by media messages every day. Don’t miss this opportunity to interact with TED speaker, renowned media scholar and CU Boulder alumnus, Chris Bell, PhD and consider how media impacts your personal and professional life as an engineer working to address societal issues. Bell specializes in...

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...

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...

Nonlinear Waves Seminar - Justin Cole

Oct. 29, 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)...
