Applied Math Seminar: Convolutional Neural Network with Decomposed Filters

Seminar | December 6 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 732 Evans Hall

 Xiuyuan Cheng, Duke University

 Department of Mathematics

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 >

Let's Talk: Engaging in Cross-Cultural Communication: Beeqi004-181206

Workshop | December 6 | 1-4 p.m. | 24 University Hall

 Sidalia Reel

 Human Resources

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 >

Representation Theory and Mathematical Physics Seminar: Introduction to Virtual Knot Theory

Seminar | December 6 | 2-3 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall | Note change in time

 Louis H Kauffman, University of Illinois at Chicago

 Department of Mathematics

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

 Department of Mathematics

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 >
