Tobias Jones Applied Mathematics , University of Colorado Boulder Date and time: Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - 12:00pm Abstract: The proposed research contains three main topics: AMG-DD/RD In modern large-scale supercomputing applications, Algebraic MultiGrid (AMG) is a leading choice for...

Colloquium: Stefan Llewellyn Smith

April 26, 2013

Hollow Vortices Stefan Llewellyn Smith Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering; University of California, San Diego Date and time: Friday, April 26, 2013 - 12:45pm Abstract: Hollow vortices are vortices whose interior is at rest. They posses vortex sheets on their boundaries and can be viewed as a desingularization of...

Dynamical Systems Seminar: Amrik Sen

April 25, 2013

A weak-wave turbulence theory for fluid flows in the limit of rapid rotation Amrik Sen Applied Mathematics , University of Colorado Boulder Date and time: Thursday, April 25, 2013 - 3:15pm Abstract: A weak-wave turbulence theory for rapidly rotating flows is developed in this paper. The governing equations are an...

Colloquium: Margaret Cheney

April 19, 2013

Introduction to Radar Imaging Margaret Cheney Department of Mathematics, Colorado State University Date and time: Friday, April 19, 2013 - 12:45pm Abstract: Radar imaging is a technology that has been developed, very successfully, within the engineering community during the last 50 years. Radar systems on satellites now make beautiful images...

Dynamical Systems Seminar: Jeffrey Weiss

April 18, 2013

Nonequilibrium Fluctuations and Climate Variability Jeffrey Weiss Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, University of Colorado Boulder Date and time: Thursday, April 18, 2013 - 3:15pm Abstract: Nonequilibrium steady-states are characterized by entropy producing fluctuations. These fluctuations take the form of finite-time events with preferred lifecycles. Nonequilibrium fluctuations are typically...

Colloquium: Mahesh Varanasi

April 12, 2013

On Information Transmission Mahesh Varanasi Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering Date and time: Friday, April 12, 2013 - 12:45pm Abstract: This talk will start by providing some simple examples of communication schemes for the reliable transmission of information over certain communication channels. The point-to-point data communication problem will...
