Workshop | April 5 | 9 a.m.-12 p.m. | Tang Center, University Health Services, Section Club
Dana Walsh, MFT, CEAP, Employee Assistance, Be well at Work - Employee Assistance; Kathy Mendoca, Talent + Organizational Performance (TOP)
External stressors are real, yet how we choose to view, experience and manage them is an internal process. To maintain a healthy level of stress, we must cultivate an ability to remain flexible and open in order to adapt and adjust to challenges. This workshop will examine common traits of resilient people, and explore ways to strengthen our own resiliency skills, while introducing the concept of... More >

I am interested in evolutionary medicine and how understanding the ways in which humans have co-evolved with environments, diets, and pathogens allows us to better understand health and disease. My research draws on the methods and theoretical frameworks of several fields, including: molecular biology, archaeology, archaeogenetics (ancient DNA), stable isotope-based paleodietary and...

How is the rewiring of communication in the network age changing how we deceive and trust one another? How can we trust that news story, or a hotels online review, or that text message about someone being on their way? In this talk well go over how principles from psychology and communication intersect deception and trust with technology. Well cover the state-of-the-art in deception detection... More >

Seifert genus and bridge number are classical knot invariants that detect the unknot and are additive under connected sum. Other classical knot invariants such as tunnel number, higher genus bridge number, and Gabai width have more complicated stories. I'll review the definitions of these invariants and their (non-)additivity properties. Additionally, I'll explain Scharlemann-Thompson thin... More >

In the absence of dissipation, relativistic fluid dynamics is described by a five-field theory, namely, in terms of three velocity and two thermodynamic variables that are governed by the Euler system, five partial differential equations that determine the spatiotemporal evolution of these five fields from general initial data. Regarding the modeling of dissipation, i.e., viscosity and heat... More >

For finite parameter spaces under finite loss, every Bayes procedure derived from a prior with full support is admissible, and every admissible procedure is Bayes. This relationship already breaks down once we move to finite-dimensional Euclidean parameter spaces. Compactness and strong regularity conditions suffice to repair the relationship, but without these conditions, admissible procedures... More >

Tunnel number, higher genus bridge number, and Gabai width are classical knot invariants that are additive under connected sum for some classes of knots, but not for others. I'll explain variations of these classical invariants that are defined for almost all (3-manifold, graph) pairs, that detect the unknot in the 3-sphere, and that are additive under connected sum and trivalent vertex sum.
