As our population ages, a growing number of people must adapt to normal and pathological aging processes.

Hundreds of Armenians journeyed eastward to China in the late 19th century in search of opportunity, anchoring themselves in major cities, as well as in Harbin, a town that rose to prominence with the construction of the Chinese Eastern Railway. A few thousand others arrived in the region escaping the Armenian Genocide and turmoil in the Caucasus in the years that followed. Many of these...   More >

Leveraging Science to Improve the Lives of Children and Adolescents: A cross-disciplinary discussion

Combinatorics Seminar: Cone valuations, Gram's relation, and combinatorics

Seminar | March 18 | 12:10-1 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Raman Sanyal, Goethe Universitat-Frankfurt and Simons Institute

 Department of Mathematics

The Euler-Poincare formula is a cornerstone of the combinatorial theory of polytopes. It states that the number of faces of various dimensions of a convex polytope satisfy a linear relation and it is the only linear relation (up to scaling). Gram’s relation generalizes the fact that the sum of (interior) angles at the vertices of a convex $n$-gon is $(n-2)\pi$. In dimensions $3$ and up, it is...   More >

String-Math Seminar: A Sheaf-Theoretic model for \(SL(2,\mathbb C)\) Floer homology

Seminar | March 18 | 2-3 p.m. | 402 LeConte Hall

 Mohammed Abouzaid, Columbia University

 Department of Mathematics

I will describe joint work with Ciprian Manolescu on constructing an analogue of instanton Floer homology replacing the group \(SU(2)\) by \(SL(2,\mathbb C)\). Having failed to do so using the standard Floer theoretic tools of gauge theory and symplectic topology, we turned to sheaf theory to produce an invariant. After describing our approach, I will discuss some features of this theory that are...   More >

Special Quantum Geometry Seminar: Matrix algebras, geometry and particle physics

Seminar | March 18 | 2:10-4 p.m. | 736 Evans Hall

 Andrzej Sitarz, Jagiellonian University, Krakow

 Department of Mathematics

Starting from the description of the Standard Model of particle physics based on noncommutative geometry we study the properties of the matrix algebras in the model. We demonstrate that there exists a new previously unknown geometric feature of the model, which can be mathematically stated that the Hilbert space of particles is a self-Morita equivalence bimodule for the associated generalization...   More >

Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory RTG Seminar: Bounding 5-torsion in class groups using Elliptic Curves

Seminar | March 18 | 3-5 p.m. | 748 Evans Hall

 Jacob Tsimerman, University of Toronto

 Department of Mathematics

We discuss a new method to bound 5-torsion in class groups using elliptic curves. The most natural “trivial” bound on the n-torsion is to bound it by the size of the entire class group, for which one has a global class number formula. We explain how to make sense of the n-torsion of a class group intrinsically as a “dimension 0 selmer group”, and by embedding it into an appropriate...   More >

Differential Geometry Seminar: On the large time collapsing of Ricci flows

Seminar | March 18 | 3:10-4 p.m. | 939 Evans Hall

 Shaosai Huang, University of Wisconsin-Madison

 Department of Mathematics

In contrast to finite time singularities of Ricci flows, it is known that collapsing with bounded sectional curvature may occur as we approach time infinity along immortal Ricci flows. In this talk I will show that along an immortal Ricci flow with uniformly bounded diameter and sectional curvature, an unbounded sequence of time slices sub converges to a Ricci flat orbifold.

Evidence for the Suffixing Preference

Colloquium | March 18 | 3:10-5 p.m. | 370 Dwinelle Hall

 Matthew S. Dryer, Professor of Linguistics, University at Buffalo

 Department of Linguistics

It might be thought that there already exists overwhelming evidence for a preference for suffixes over prefixes. However, strictly speaking, most of the available evidence is evidence for an orthographic suffixing preference, i.e. a preference for suffixes over prefixes in the orthographic representations of words in grammatical descriptions. Haspelmath (2011), however, questions how reliable...   More >

Jeffrey Linderoth – Perspectives on Integer Programming in Sparse Optimization

Seminar | March 18 | 3:30-4:30 p.m. | 1174 Etcheverry Hall

 Jeffrey Linderoth, University of Wisconsin - Madison

 Industrial Engineering & Operations Research

Abstract: Algorithms to solve mixed integer linear programs have made incredible progress in the past 20 years. Key to these advances has been a mathematical analysis of the structure of the set of feasible solutions. We argue that a similar analysis is required in the case of mixed integer quadratic programs, like those that arise in sparse optimization in machine learning. One such analysis...   More >

Abstract:
Mammals generate energy by burning dietary carbon into CO2. The largest calorie source for most mammals is carbohydrate, which is broken down into glucose in the small intestinal lumen. Glucose is then absorbed and circulates in the blood stream. To acquire energy, tissues are generally assumed to take in glucose and break it down to CO2 through the concerted action of glycolysis and...   More >

Seminar 217, Risk Management: Asset Insurance Premium in the Cross-Section of Asset Synchronicity

Seminar | March 19 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall

 Speaker: Raymond Leung, UC Berkeley

 Consortium for Data Analytics in Risk

Any asset can use some portfolio of similar assets to insure against its own factor risks, even if the identities of the factors are unknown. A long position of an asset and a short position of this portfolio forms an asset insurance premium (AIP) that is different from the equity risk premium.

The human body is colonized by trillions of microorganisms that exert a profound influence on human biology, in part by providing functional capabilities that extend beyond those of host cells. In particular, there is growing evidence linking chemical processes carried out by the microbial inhabitants of the gastrointestinal tract to both health and disease. However, we still do not understand...   More >

Abstract: We develop a quantitative general equilibrium oligopsony model of the U.S. labor market, calibrated to Census data. Parameters governing labor market power are identified using new measures of within-state-firm, across-market differences in the response of employment and wages to state corporate tax changes. After calibrating to match 2014 measures of labor market power, we find that...   More >
