Shira Viel, NC State,Folding and dominance: relationships among mutation fans for surfaces and orbifolds

October 23 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

The $n$-associahedron is a well-known $n$-dimensional polytope whose vertices are labeled by triangulations of an $(n+3)$-gon with edges given by diagonal flips. The $n$-cyclohedron is defined analogously using centrally-symmetric triangulations of a $(2n+2)$-gon, or, modding out by the symmetry, triangulations…

Changhui Tan, NC State, Self-organized dynamics: aggregation and flocking

October 26 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Self-organized behaviors are commonly observed in nature and human societies, such as bird flocks, fish swarms and human crowds. In this talk, I will present some celebrated mathematical models, with simple small-scale interactions which lead to the emergence of global…

Ryan Murray, Convergence rates for ficticious play algorithm in decentralized control problems

November 1 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

In many practical control problems (e.g. in the power grid/traffic flow) agents are not able to effectively coordinate their actions. One classical method proposed by economists for solving such decentralized control problems is known as the ficticious play algorithm. This…

Gabor Pataki, UNC-Chapel Hill, Bad semidefinite programs, linear algebra, and short proofs

November 7 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Semidefinite programs (SDPs) -- optimization problems with linear constraints, linear objective, and semidefinite matrix variables --  are some of the most useful, versatile, and pervasive optimization problems to emerge in the last 30 years. They find applications in combinatorial optimization, machine learning, and statistics, to…

Faramarz Vafaee, Caltech, The prism manifold realization problem

November 7 | 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

The spherical manifold realization problem asks which spherical three-manifolds arise from surgeries on knots in the three-sphere. In recent years, the realization problem for C, T, O, and I-type spherical manifolds has been solved, leaving the D-type manifolds (also known…

Loc Nguyen, UNC Charlotte, Phaseless Coefficient Inverse problem using only one direction of incident wave

November 9 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

The phaseless coefficient inverse problem arises in imaging of nano-structures. One uses light source whose wavelength is in the range of hundreds of nanometers to illuminate those structures and collects the intensity of the complex scattering field on a plane…

Francisco Santos Leal, Universidad de Cantabria, Diameters of polyhedra and simplicial complexes

November 13 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

The Hirsch conjecture, posed in 1957, stated that the graph of a $d$-dimensional polytope or polyhedron with $n$ facets cannot have diameter greater than $n−d$ . The conjecture itself has been disproved by Klee-Walkup (1967) for unbounded polyhedra and by…
