Mohammad Farazmand, Agnes Szanto

September 27 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Emily Gunawan, University of Connecticut, Cambrian combinatorics on quiver representations

September 30 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Let Q be an orientation of a type A Dynkin diagram. An eta map corresponding to Q is a surjection from the weak order on permutations to a Cambrian lattice (of triangulations of a polygon). We give a new geometric way…

Donald Sheehy, NC State, On the Cohomology of Impossible Figures, Revisited

October 1 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

The Penrose triangle, also known as the impossible tribar is an icon for cohomology.  It is literally the icon for Cech cohomology on Wikipedia.  The idea goes back to a paper by Roger Penrose in 1992, but was first reported…

Jon Stallrich, NC State, Sign-Informative Design and Analysis of Supersaturated Designs

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

Much of the literature on the design and analysis of supersaturated designs (SSDs), in which the number of factors exceeds the number of runs, rests on design principles assuming a least-squares analysis.  More recently, researchers have discovered the potential of analyzing SSDs with penalized…

John Lagergren, SIAM Student Chapter: Graduate Student Tutorial

October 3 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Machine learning has become widely popular in fields like computer vision, natural language processing, and speech recognition, often performing tasks better than humans. A fundamental building block of many of these algorithms is a neural network known as a multilayer perceptron. In this…

130th Math Department Anniversary Celebration

October 5 - October 6

Register now for a weekend anniversary celebration marking 130 years of mathematics education and research here at NC State. The history of mathematics at the university dates to 1889, when math courses were among the first taught as NC State…

NC State Mathematics 130th anniversary picnic

October 6 | 11:30 am - 4:00 pm EDT

Yan Zhuang, Davidson College, Counting permutations by peaks, descents, and cycle type

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

We present a general formula describing the joint distribution of two permutation statistics—the peak number and the descent number—over any set of permutations whose quasisymmetric generating function is a symmetric function. Our formula involves a certain kind of plethystic substitution…

JungHwan Park, Georgia Tech, Rational cobordisms and integral homology

October 15 | 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

We prove that every rational homology cobordism class in the subgroup generated by lens spaces is represented by a unique connected sum of lens spaces whose first homology embeds in any other element in the same class. As an application,…

Eric Hallman, NC State, Sharp 2-norm Error Bounds for LSQR and the Conjugate Gradient Method

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

When running any iterative algorithm it is useful to know when to stop. Here we review LSQR and LSLQ, two iterative methods for solving \min_x \|Ax-b\|_2 based on the Golub-Kahan bidiagonalization process, as well as estimates for the 2-norm error…

Mikhail Klibanov, UNC Charlotte, Carleman Estimates for Globally Convergent Numerical Methods for Coefficient Inverse Problems

October 16 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

The ill-posedness and nonlinearity are two factors causing the phenomenon of multiple local minima and ravines of conventional least squares cost functionals for Coefficient Inverse Problems. Since any minimization method can stop at any point of a local minimum, then…

Mohammad Farazmand, NC State, Extreme Events in Chaos

October 17 | 4:30 pm - 5:20 pm EDT

Chaos refers to seemingly random and unpredictable dynamics of a system that evolves in time. Certain chaotic systems exhibit an additional level of complexity: intermittent extreme events that are noticeably distinct from the usual chaotic dynamics.  These extreme events include ocean…

Arvind Krishna Saibaba, NC State, The Mathematics Behind Imaging

October 17 | 4:30 pm - 5:20 pm EDT

From x-ray machines to luggage scanners, our lives depend on imaging devices that let us “see” what is impossible to observe with the naked eye. I will explain some of the mathematical ideas that make image reconstructions possible. Along the…
