Seminar 217, Risk Management: The Implication of Information Network in Market Quality and Market Reaction to Public Announcements
Seminar | April 30 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall
Speakers: Senyang Zhao, SWUFE
This research studies the role of information network in market quality and market reaction to public announcements. We propose in this article a three-period rational noisy expected equilibrium model by taking both public and private information into account with an embedded information network structure among market traders. Closed form expressions for market reaction and market quality are... More >

Abstract: The relationships expressing the rate of evaporation and condensation at the liquid vapor interface, in terms of local interfacial thermodynamics properties and the mass accommodation coefficient (MAC), is a subject of significant discussion for over a century since the pioneering work of Hertz and Knudsen. In this context, using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of fluid argon and... More >

We study optimal policy when the planner has partial information in a general setup where observed signals are endogenous to policy. In this context, signal extraction and policy have to be determined jointly. We derive a general non-standard first order condition of optimality from first principles and we use it to find numerical solutions. This first order condition allows us to identify... More >

Student Harmonic Analysis and PDE Seminar (HADES): Self-adjoint extensions of Laplace operators on singular geometry
Seminar | April 30 | 3:40-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall
Xuwen Zhu, UC Berkeley
Spectral geometry aims at understanding how geometry influences the spectrum of geometrically related operators such as the Laplace operator. I will first talk about Von Neumann theory on classification of self-adjoint extensions of symmetric operators, and in particular focus on the Laplace operator on metrics with conical singularities. Then I will give a survey on how geometry (e.g. curvature... More >

Around 1990, Reshetikhin and Turaev discovered a family of 3d TQFTs whose relation to the rest of 3-manifold topology is still poorly understood. The biggest obstruction to relating these TQFTs to the rest of the 3-manifold world is that their original construction is almost entirely algebraic. For closed manifolds, Kirby and Melvin managed to relate one of these TQFTs to some classical... More >

We have developed the vibrational Stark effect to probe electrostatics and dynamics in organized systems, in particular in proteins where vibrational probes can report on functionally important electric fields. The strategy involves deploying site-specific vibrational probes whose sensitivity to an electric field is measured in a calibrated external electric field. Once calibrated, these probes,... More >

BMS-813160 is being investigated by Bristol-Myers Squibb as a combination therapy for colorectal and pancreatic cancer. In order to evaluate the clinical efficacy, a safe, robust, scalable, and cost-effective total synthesis was needed. The talk will focus on how process chemists enabled the production of multi-kg of BMS-813160 by route invention, process invention, and process characterization.... More >
Representation Theory and Mathematical Physics Seminar: Vertex operators realizations of families of symmetric functions
Seminar | April 30 | 4-5 p.m. | 748 Evans Hall
Natalia Rojkovskaia, Kansas State University
The algebra of charged free fermions participates in the construction of classical boson-fermion correspondence and provides vertex operator realization of Schur symmetric functions. We will show how vertex operator realizations of several other famous families of symmetric functions (Hall-Littlewood polynomials, shifted Schur functions, multiparameter Schur Q-functions) can be obtained by simple...
