Charles-Albert Lehalle - Closing The Loop of Optimal Trading: a Mean Field Game of Controls

Seminar | April 24 | 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. | 4193 Etcheverry Hall

Charles-Albert Lehalle, Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI)

Industrial Engineering & Operations Research

This talk explains how to formulate the now classical problem of optimal liquidation (or optimal trading) inside a Mean Field Game (MFG). This is a noticeable change since usually mathematical frameworks focus on one large trader in front of a " background noise " (or " mean field "). In standard frameworks, the interactions between the large trader and the price are a temporary and a permanent......   More >

Dimensional Reduction and Hyper Reduction of Parametric Nonlinear Structural Dynamics Models for Real-Time Computing: SEMM Seminar

Seminar | April 24 | 12-1 p.m. | 502 Davis Hall

Charbel Farhat, Professor, Department of Aeronatics and Astronautics, Department of Mechanical Engineering and Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering, Stanford University

Model reduction is a tool in applied mathematics that is rapidly becoming indispensable for computational-based design and optimization, stochastic analysis for uncertainty quantification, embedded computing, and online optimal control. It is also essential for “what-if” engineering scenarios and other parametric studies where dramatically faster if not real-time simulation responses are desired....   More >

Seminar | April 25 | 2-3 p.m. | 400 Cory Hall

Kevin Chen

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

III-V semiconductors are promising materials for a wide variety of electronic and optoelectronic applications due to their high electron mobilities as well as direct band gaps which can be tuned by changing the elemental composition of the material. However, they are limited in their application space due to two main factors: cost and the need for a lattice matched epitaxial substrate upon which......   More >

Jeni Miller, Executive Director, Global Climate and Health Alliance

Energy and Resources Group

In its 2015 report, the UCL-Lancet Commission on Health and Climate Change stated that climate change poses “an unacceptably high and potentially catastrophic risk to human health.” The threats to health are myriad, ranging from heat-related morbidity/mortality, to increases in vector-borne diseases, to the impact of worsening air quality on respiratory and cardiovascular disease.......   More >

Colloquium | April 26 | 4-5 p.m. | Soda Hall, 306 (HP Auditorium)

Philip Lubin, University of California, Santa Barbara

Humanity has long dreamed of exploring new worlds far outside our solar system. With more than 3600 exo-planets discovered the number of planets per star appears to be about unity. The implications of this are profound. One of the implications is the desire to visit some of these exo-planets. However, our current propulsion systems are not capable of exploring our stellar neighbors......   More >
