Getting Started in Undergraduate Research

If you are thinking about getting involved in undergraduate research, this workshop is a great place to start! You will get a broad overview of the research opportunities available to undergraduates on campus, and suggestions on how to find them.

We will also let you know about upcoming deadlines and eligibility requirements for some of...   More >

Uniform rates of the Glivenko-Cantelli convergence and their use in approximating Bayesian inferences

Seminar | August 22 | 3-4 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall

 Eugenio Regazzini, Universita degli Studi di Pavia, Italy

 Department of Statistics

This talk deals with suitable quantifications in approximating a probability measure by an “empirical” random probability measure \hat p_n, depending on the first n terms of a sequence \{\xi_i\}_{i\ge1}
of random elements. In the first part, we study the range of oscillation near zero of the p-Wasserstein distance d(p) ....

Based on joint work with Emanuele Dolera.   More >

Topology Seminar (Main Talk): Where do Seiberg-Witten equations come from?

Seminar | August 22 | 4-5 p.m. | 3 Evans Hall

 Selman Akbulut, Michigan State University

 Department of Mathematics

The question in the title is akin to asking where the equation of motion of a free falling object $a + bt + 1/2 gt^2$ in 3-space come from? then discovering that the "objects fall with constant acceleration" rule. Similarly, we derive Seiberg-Witten equations (which also have a linear part and a quadratic part) from the deformation equations of an "isotropic associative submanifold" of a complex...   More >

Rerandomization and Regression Adjustment

Seminar | August 22 | 4-5 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall

 Peng Ding, UC Berkeley

 Department of Statistics

Randomization is a basis for the statistical inference of treatment effects without assumptions on the outcome generating process. Appropriately using covariates further yields more precise estimators in randomized experiments. In his seminal work Design of Experiments, R. A. Fisher suggested blocking on discrete covariates in the design stage and conducting the analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) in...   More >

What’s in Store for the Grocery Industry?

Panel Discussion | August 22 | 6 p.m. |  SPUR Oakland

 1544 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612

 Berkeley Food Institute, SPUR Oakland

The grocery business is changing. Shifting consumer preferences, business consolidation and evolving supply chains are all influencing where we get our food and what’s in the aisles. As longtime staples of our communities, grocery stores will continue to impact community economic development, neighborhood planning, the shape of the workforce and more. Join us to hear about current trends and the...   More >
