SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Antoine Cerfon

Stellarators are promising magnetic fusion devices for electricity generation, because the dynamics of the hot fusion fuel - called a plasma - is largely determined by external control, as opposed to dynamical self-organization, as is the case for...

SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Wuyang Chen

In recent years, there has been growing promise in coupling machine learning methods with domain-specific physical insights to solve scientific problems based on partial differential equations (PDEs). However, there are two critical bottlenecks that...

PIMS-CORDS SFU Operations Research Seminar: Shawn Wang

Firmly nonexpansive operators are important in Convex Analysis and Optimization and Algorithms. It is a special case of averaged operators. We classify averaged operators, firmly nonexpansive operators, and proximal mappings by the BBW modulus of...

SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Denis Grebenkov

In this overview talk, I will present the encounter-based approach to diffusive processes in Euclidean domains and highlight its fundamental relation to the Steklov spectral problem. So, the Steklov eigenfunctions turn out to be particularly useful...

SFU Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Netan Dogra

Let $f(x)$ be a separable polynomial with rational number coefficients. In this talk I will review how the rational points of the hyperelliptic curve $y^2 = f(x)$ can sometimes be determined using the number field obtained by adjoining a root of $f$...

SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Christina Runkel

In recent years, classical knowledge-driven approaches for inverse problems have been complemented by data-driven methods exploiting the power of machine and especially deep learning. Purely data-driven methods, however, come with the drawback of...

SFU Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Lucas Villagra Torcomian

In 1770 Euler observed that $3^3+4^3+5^3=6^3$ and asked if there was another perfect power that equals the sum of consecutive cubes. This captivated the attention of many important mathematicians, such as Cunningham, Catalan, Genocchi and Lucas. In...

SFU Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Shubhodip Mondal

Classically, DieudonnÃ© theory offers a linear algebraic classification of finite group schemes and p-divisible groups over a perfect field of characteristic p>0. In this talk, I will discuss generalizations of this story from the perspective of p...

SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Isaac Harris

In this talk, we will investigate the acoustic transmission eigenvalue problem associated with an inhomogeneous media with a conductive boundary. These are a new class of eigenvalue problems that are not elliptic, not self-adjoint, and non-linear...

SFU Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Hendrik SÃ¼ÃŸ

In my talk I will discuss the notion of local volume for singularities. For the special case of toric singularities this turns out to be closely related to the notion of Mahler volume in convex geometry. This opens a connection between algebraic...

SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Xuefeng Liu

This talk introduces a newly developed computational method for rigorously evaluating the Hadamard derivative of Laplacian eigenvalues, which plays an important role in studying shape optimization problems. To evaluate the Hadamard derivative, this...

SFU Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Mark Giesbrecht

We consider the algorithmic problem of the functional decomposition of sparse polynomials. For example, (very) given a very high degree (5âˆ—2 100)(5âˆ—2 100) and very sparse (7 terms) polynomial like f(x)=x(5âˆ—2 100)+15âˆ—x(2 102+2 47)+90âˆ—x(2 101+2 100+2...
