Logic at UC Berkeley Conference: Absolutely ordinal definable sets

Seminar | May 5 | 9:30-10:45 a.m. | 141 McCone Hall

 John Steel, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

Set theorists have discovered many mutually incompatible natural theories extending ZFC. One can hope that these incompatibilities will be resolved by interpreting all such theories in a useful common framework theory. There is a promising candidate for such a framework theory. Its crucial axiom, “Axiom H”, asserts that V looks like the collection of hereditarily ordinal definable sets in a...   More >

Dissertation Talk: High Dimensional Reachability Analysis: Addressing the Curse of Dimensionality in Formal Verification

Seminar | May 5 | 10-11 a.m. | 405 Soda Hall

 Mo Chen, UC Berkeley EECS

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Autonomous systems are becoming pervasive in everyday life, and many of these systems are complex and safety-critical. Formal verification is important for providing performance and safety guarantees for these systems. In particular, Hamilton-Jacobi (HJ) reachability is a formal verification tool for nonlinear and hybrid systems. However, it is computationally intractable for analyzing complex...   More >

Logic at UC Berkeley Conference: Reflections on model theory and foundations

Seminar | May 5 | 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m. | 141 McCone Hall

 Ehud Hrushovski, Oxford University

 Department of Mathematics

Set theory, at many scales, studies the nature of mathematical abstraction. Model theory is sometimes viewed as less engaged with the foundations of mathematics. I’ll propose some thoughts on this aspect of the field.

Logic at UC Berkeley Conference: Computability Theory

Seminar | May 5 | 2:15-3:30 p.m. | 3 LeConte Hall

 Denis Hirschfeldt, University of Chicago

 Department of Mathematics

I will discuss some recent work and possible future developments in computability theory, with an inevitable bias towards my own interests. The study of Turing reducibility and the Turing degrees has long been the backbone of the area, but many other notions of computability-theoretic comparison, old and new, have been intensely studied in the last few years. These notions, and the ways they...   More >

Microwave imaging refers to the use of microwaves to capture images of real-world objects. While conventional optical imaging uses light waves to capture images, microwave imaging uses waves at microwave and millimeter-wave (mm-wave) frequencies. In this talk, we will be discussing how planar antenna arrays, operating in the 24GHz band, can be used to capture three-dimensional images of objects...   More >

Logic at UC Berkeley Conference: On relating type theories to (intuitionistic) set theories

Seminar | May 5 | 3:45-5 p.m. | 3 LeConte Hall

 Michael Rathjen, Leeds University

 Department of Mathematics

Type theory, originally conceived as a bulwark against the paradoxes of naive set theory, has languished for a long time in the shadow of axiomatic set theory which became the mainstream foundation of mathematics in the 20th century. But type theories, especially dependent ones à la Martin-Löf, are looked upon favorably these days. The recent renaissance not only champions type theory as a...   More >

Seminar | May 5 | 4-5 p.m. |  Pitzer Auditorium, 120 Latimer Hall

 Prof. Vincent Pecoraro, Department of Chemistry, University of Michigan

 College of Chemistry

In 1988, Ken Raymond and I had a conversation on coordination chemistry at a Gordon Conference. A consequence of this discussion was the preparation of the first report of the metallamacrocyclic class now known as metallacrowns. These molecules began as simple analogues of crown ethers that substituted the methylene carbons of these molecules with heteroatoms, typically N and a transition...   More >

Increasing Freeway Capacity by Efficiently Timing its Nearby Arterial Traffic Signals

Lecture | May 5 | 4-5 p.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

 David Kan, UC Berkeley

 Institute of Transportation Studies

Abstract: The objective of freeway on-ramp metering is to regulate the entry of vehicles to prevent capacity drop on the freeway mainline. However, the nearby arterial traffic signals facilitating freeway access fail to recognize that the metered on-ramps can be oversaturated due to the flow restriction and limited storage. Instead, the arterial traffic signals provide long cycles in order to...   More >
