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…

Petar Momcilovic, University of Florida, Data-Driven Appointment Scheduling Under Uncertainty: The Case of an Infusion Unit in an Oncology Center

November 6 | 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

We develop a novel, data-driven approach to deal with appointment sequencing and scheduling in a multi-server system, where both customer punctuality and service times are stochastic. Our model is calibrated using a data set of unprecedented resolution, gathered at a…

Wen-shin Lee, University of Antwerp, Belgium, Identification problem in exponential analysis

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

The Blahut/Ben-Or/Tiwari sparse interpolation algorithm from computer algebra is closely related to Prony’s method for exponential analysis. In this talk, we focus on some challenges in exponential analysis. Estimating the spectral information of an exponential sum plays an important role in many signal…

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…

Kristina Czuchlewski, Sandia National Laboratories, New Horizons in Geospatial Analytics

November 14 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

In recent years, Sandia National Laboratories has been accelerating research investments in data science and analytics. This change was motivated by a need for timely decisions about the state of the world in the context of increasingly large and diverse…

Laura Potter, Global Head of Computational Biology, Syngenta, Helping feed the world with innovative agricultural products: Opportunities for computational biology

November 14 | 4:20 pm - 5:20 pm EDT

As the world’s rapidly growing population is driving ever increasing demand for food, feed and fuel, we are faced with the challenge to grow higher-yielding crops with less water and fewer inputs.  Agriculture companies are focused on meeting these needs…

Gleb Pogudin, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Algorithms for Checking Global Identifiability

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

The following situation arises in modeling: one has a system of differential equations with parameters and wants to determine the values of these parameters measuring unknown functions (assuming that perfect noise-free measurements are possible). Usually, some of the unknown functions…

Ben Hollering, NC State, Longest increasing subsequences of ordered set partitions

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

The size of a maximum agreement subtree of two phylogenetic trees is a statistic that is often used to test the null hypothesis that no cospeciation occurred between two families of species of interest. The size of the maximum agreement…

Ziva Myer, Duke, Product Structures for Legendrian Submanifolds with Generating Families

November 15 | 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

In contact topology, invariants of Legendrian submanifolds in 1-jet spaces have been obtained through a variety of techniques. I will discuss how I am enriching one Morse-theoretic invariant, Generating Family Cohomology, to an A-infinity algebra by constructing product maps. The…
