Seminar | December 6 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 732 Evans Hall
Xiuyuan Cheng, Duke University
Filters in a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) contain model parameters learned from data. The properties of convolutional filters in a trained deep network directly affect the quality of the feature representation being learned. In this talk, we introduce a framework for decomposing convolutional filters over a truncated expansion under pre-fixed bases, where the expansion coefficients are... More >
Seminar | December 6 | 12-1:30 p.m. | C330 Haas School of Business
Raul Sanchez de la Sierra, UC Berkeley
The Oliver E. Williamson Seminar on Institutional Analysis, named after our esteemed colleague who founded the seminar, features current research by faculty, from UCB and elsewhere, and by advanced doctoral students. The research investigates governance, and its links with economic and political forces. Markets, hierarchies, hybrids, and the supporting institutions of law and politics all come... More >

Marius Guenzel, UC Berkeley; Chris Lako, UC Berkeley
Workshop | December 6 | 1-4 p.m. | 24 University Hall
This workshop engages participants in conversations regarding what gets in the way when communicating across difference. This workshop reviews interactive communication theory and U.S. domestic dynamics of Human Diversity. Participants will work with each other in discussing and applying this information in varied situations. By the end of this workshop participants will: Increase awareness of... More >
Seminar | December 6 | 2-3 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall | Note change in time
Louis H Kauffman, University of Illinois at Chicago
Virtual knot theory is a generalization of classical knot theory that studies stabilized knots and links in thickened surfaces. Two knots (links) in thickened surfaces are said to be stably equivalent if they can be obtained one from another by a finite sequence of ambient isotopies along with surgeries on their complements (that can change of genus of the embedding surface). There is a... More >

Representation Theory and Mathematical Physics Seminar: Twisting functors and generalized Verma modules
Seminar | December 6 | 4-5 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall
Libor Krizka, Charles University in Prague and University of Sao Paolo
We will discuss the Arkhipov's twisting functor associated to a positive root of a complex simple finite-dimensional Lie algebra. By applying this twisting functor for a non-simple root on generalized Verma modules we obtain the so called partial Gelfand-Tsetlin modules, which are weight modules outside the category \(\mathcal O\). The talk is based on joint results with Vyacheslav Futorny and... More >
Workshop | December 6 | 8-10 p.m. | Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union
Get crafty with us! Were hosting free, drop-in arts & crafts workshops in the MLK Jr. Student Union Campus Living Room. This week we're making beautiful paper lanterns just in time for the holidays.
