Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Enrico Camporeale

March 17, 2023

Enrico Camporeale, Space Weather Prediction Center, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Using Physics-Informed Neural Networks for solving inverse problems: a space physics case study We use the framework of Physics-Informed Neural Network (PINN) to solve the inverse problem associated with the Fokker-Planck equation for radiation belts' electron transport, using 4...

Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Peter Thomas

March 3, 2023

Peter Thomas; Department of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics; Case Western Reserve University A Universal Description of Stochastic Oscillators Many systems in physics, chemistry and biology exhibit oscillations with a pronounced random component. Such stochastic oscillations can emerge via different mechanisms, for example linear dynamics of a stable focus with...

Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Steve Penny

Feb. 24, 2023

Steve Penny, Data Assimilation Lead, Sofar Ocean Advances in integrating Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML) with Data Assimilation (DA) to produce data-driven weather forecasts. A number of exciting advances in Machine Learning (ML) weather models have occurred within the past year. An important next step is to determine how...

Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Isla Simpson

Feb. 17, 2023

Isla Simpson, National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Boulder, CO Future projections in the large-scale atmospheric circulation response to climate change: uncertainties, implications and progress Accurate future projections of the climate system are hindered by a number of sources of uncertainty: forcing uncertainty, internal variability, and model structural uncertainty. Accurately...

Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Nathalie Vriend

Feb. 10, 2023

Nathalie Vriend, The Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering , University of Colorado Boulder Granular Flows: Photoelastic avalanches & Bedform dynamics Flowing granular materials arise everywhere around us, in industry from pharmaceutical processes to bulk good transport lines, and in nature from snow avalanches to captivating dune fields. At...

Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Daniel Acuña

Feb. 3, 2023

Daniel Acuña, Department of Computer Science, University of Colorado Boulder Robust Scientific Image Tampering Detection through Noise Inconsistencies and Null Models Scientific image tampering is a critical issue that undermines the research community's perception of trust and integrity. Current methods for identifying image tampering in natural images may not be...

Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Kyle Luh

Jan. 27, 2023

Kyle Luh, Department of Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder Extreme Eigenvalues of a Random Laplacian Matrix The extreme eigenvalues of a random matrix have been important objects of study since the inception of random matrix theory and also have a variety of applications. The Laplacian matrix is the workhorse of...

Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Alessandro Peri

Jan. 20, 2023

Alessandro Peri, Department of Economics, University of Colorado Boulder Programming FPGAs for Economics: An Introduction to Electrical Engineering Economics We show how to use field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and their associated high-level synthesis (HLS) compilers to solve heterogeneous agent models with incomplete markets and aggregate uncertainty (Krusell and Smith, 1998)...

Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Daniel Rothman

Dec. 8, 2022

Daniel Rothman; Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences; Massachusetts Institute of Technology Excitations of Earth's Carbon Cycle Mysterious, transient changes in the ocean's store of carbon occur intermittently throughout Earth's history. Each of these events coincides with climate change; moreover, mass extinctions are always accompanied by such events. What...

Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Alex Young

Dec. 8, 2022

Alexander Young, Anderson School of Management, University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) Inferring genetic causation using randomization of genetic material within families and modeling intergenerational inequalities Multiple phenomena contribute to genotype-phenotype associations: causal effects of alleles carried by the individual on the individual (direct genetic effects); effects of alleles...
