Blair Davey, City College of New York, New York, How to obtain parabolic theorems from their elliptic counterparts

November 14 | 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm EST

Experts have long realized the parallels between elliptic and parabolic theory of partial differential equations. It is well known that elliptic theory may be considered a static, or steady-state, version of parabolic theory. And in particular, if a parabolic estimate…

Tye Lidman, NC State, How hard is it to untie a knot?

November 14 | 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EST

Imagine tying up your shoelaces into a knot.  How can we measure the difficulty of unknotting this mess?  In this talk, we will study mathematical knots and various measurements of their complexity with a view towards efficient unknotting.  This talk…

Aida Maraj, Asymptotic Behaviours of Hierarchical Models

November 15 | 11:45 am - 12:45 pm EST

Hierarchical models are statistical log-linear models that record the dependency relations among random variables in statistics. Diaconis and Sturmfels in '98 propose using ideals to study these models. I will start by introducing hierarchical models and their ideals. In this talk we'll show that…

QPR: Suicide Prevention Training

November 15 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

The NCSU Counseling center will provide a training for graduate students and the department for suicide prevention, using the QPR methodology.  As members of the campus educational community, it is important for all of us to support the mental health…

Ruimeng Hu, Columbia University, Deep Fictitious Play for Stochastic Differential Games

November 18 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Differential games, as an offspring of game theory and optimal control, provide the modeling and analysis of conflict in the context of a dynamical system. Computing Nash equilibria is one of the core objectives in differential games, with a major…

Genevieve Walsh, Tufts University, Incoherent free-by-free groups

November 19 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST

A group G is called coherent if every finitely generated subgroup of G is finitely presented.  This is a property enjoyed by the fundamental groups of 3-manifolds, and it is deeply related to the geometry of the group. We show…

Misha Kilmer, Tufts University, A new tensor framework – theory and applications

November 19 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Tensors (aka multiway arrays) can be instrumental in revealing latent correlations residing in high dimensional spaces. Despite their applicability to a broad range of applications in machine learning, speech recognition, and imaging, inconsistencies between tensor and matrix algebra have been…

Wenpin Tang, University of California, Berkeley, Discrete and continuous ranking models

November 19 | 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm EST

In this talk, I will discuss two different 'ranking' models: Mallows' ranking model and rank-dependent diffusions. In the first part, I will discuss the rank-dependent diffusions. I will focus on two models: Up the River model, and N-player games with…

Shan Gao, Beijing Institute of Technology, Discrete Geometrically-Exact Beams

November 20 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

A geometrically-exact beam is a nonlinear field-theoretic model for elongated elastic objects. It utilizes moving frames to reduce the number of system’s independent spatial variables, which is a further development of Euler’s approach to the rotational dynamics of rigid bodies.…

Renee Brady, NC State, Forecasting Cancer: Predicting Individual Responses to Intermittent Androgen Deprivation Therapy in Prostate Cancer

November 21 | 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EST

Intermittent androgen deprivation therapy (IADT) is an attractive treatment approach for biochemically recurrent prostate cancer (PCa), whereby cycling treatment on and off has been shown to limit toxicities and reduce cumulative dose. While IADT has been shown to delay the…
