Cochlear implants improve the ability of profoundly deaf children to understand speech by allowing a way for sound to be transmitted to the brain despite the lack of a working conduction system in the inner ear. Much of what we know about the course of auditory learning following cochlear implantation in young children is based on behavioral indicators that they are able to perceive sound....   More >

Around the world, governments have delegated political independence to central banks that wield tremendous power based on the belief that independence would allow these institutions to keep inflation in check. From the mid-1990s, Japan’s economy charted a unique trajectory: it fell into deflation and never fully emerged from it for nearly the next twenty years...   More >

Combinatorics Seminar: Two probabilistic proofs of Moon's Theorem and the Bradley-Terry model

Seminar | February 11 | 12:10-1 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall | Note change in date

 Brett Kolesnik, UC Berkeley

 Department of Mathematics

In an n-team tournament, each pair of teams plays a win-lose match. Landau's Theorem (1953) states that a sequence (x1,x2,...,xn), written in non-decreasing order, is the score sequence of some n-team tournament if and only if it is majorized by (0,1,...,n-1), meaning that all partial sums x1+...+xk are at least k(k-1)/2, with equality for k=n. Moon's Theorem (1963) extends this to random...   More >

Seminar | February 11 | 2-3 p.m. | 1174 Etcheverry Hall

 Daniel Lacker, Columbia University

 Industrial Engineering & Operations Research

Abstract: We study large systems of stochastic processes (particles) in which each particle is associated with a vertex in a graph and interacts only with its neighbors. When the graph is complete and the numbers of particles grows to infinity, the system is well-described by a McKean-Vlasov equation, which describes the behavior of one typical particle. For general (sparse) graphs, the system is...   More >

Probabilistic Operator Algebra Seminar: Freeness and asymptotic freeness in the context of tensors

Seminar | February 11 | 2-4 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall

 Benoit Collins, Kyoto University

 Department of Mathematics

It is known that the property of being free (or asymptotically free) for Haar unitaries remains to some extent, when the unitaries are tensored with other unitaries. In the recent years, we investigated the question of, to which extent this property holds. For example, does it hold when tensored by non-unitary operators ? When does asymptotic freeness hold strongly (in norm) ? In traffics ? etc....   More >

String-Math Seminar: Categorical invariants of annular links

Seminar | February 11 | 2-3 p.m. | 402 LeConte Hall

 Eugene Gorsky, UC Davis

 Department of Mathematics

A classical result of Turaev identifies the skein algebra of the annulus with the algebra of symmetric functions in infinitely many variables. Queffelec and Roze categorified this using annular webs and foams. I will recall their construction and compute explicit symmetric functions and their categorical analogues for some links. As an application, I will describe spectral sequences computing...   More >

Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory RTG Seminar: Dual Complex of a Singular Pair

Seminar | February 11 | 3-5 p.m. | 748 Evans Hall

 Chenyang Xu, MIT

 Department of Mathematics

The topology of an algebraic variety is a central subject in algebraic geometry. Instead of a variety, we consider the topology of a pair (X,D) which is a variety X with a divisor D, but in the coarsest level. More precisely, we study the dual complex defined as the combinatorial datum characterizing how the components of D intersect with each other. We will discuss how to use the minimal model...   More >

The Fall and Rise of Vowel Length in Bantu

Colloquium | February 11 | 3:10-5 p.m. | 370 Dwinelle Hall

 Larry M. Hyman, Professor of Linguistics, UC Berkeley

 Department of Linguistics

Although Proto-Bantu had a vowel length contrast on roots which survives in many daughter languages today, many other Bantu languages have modified the inherited system. In this talk I distinguish between four types of Bantu languages: (1) Those which maintain the free occurrence of the vowel length contrast inherited from the proto language; (2) Those which maintain the contrast, but have added...   More >

Metaphorical mappings of time and number: How cultural experience shapes cognitive universals

Colloquium | February 11 | 4-5:30 p.m. | Berkeley Way West, Room 1215, 2121 Berkeley Way, Berkeley, CA 94720

 Benjamin Pitt, University of California, Department of Psychology

 Graduate School of Education

How do people reason about things they cannot hear, see, or touch? In metaphorical mental representations, people understand abstract conceptual domains, like time and number, using knowledge of other domains, like space. The tendency to spatialize time and number may be a cognitive universal, but the specifics of these metaphorical mappings vary across cultures. In Western cultures, both time...   More >

Analysis and PDE Seminar: Some methods to use the nonlinearities in order to control a system

Seminar | February 11 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Jean-Michel Coron, UPMC

 Department of Mathematics

A control system is a dynamical system on which one can act thanks to what is called the control. For example, in a car, one can turn the steering wheel, press the accelerator pedal etc. These are the control(s). One of the main problems in control theory is the controllability problem. One starts from a given situation and there is a given target. The controllability problem is to see if, by...   More >
