Seminar | November 14 | 9:10-10 a.m. | 238 Sutardja Dai Hall
Eva Miranda, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
The dynamics of an inviscid and incompressible fluid flow on a Riemannian manifold are described by the Euler equations.

This notion concerns the Euler equations without fixing... More >

Nonlocal models such as peridynamics and fractional equations can capture effects that classical partial differential equations fail to capture. These effects include multiscale behavior, discontinuities in the solutions such as cracks, and anomalous behavior such as super- and sub-diffusion. For this reason, they provide an improved predictive capability for a large class of engineering and... More >

In the classification of compact complex surfaces, K3s are the intermediate case between the positively and negatively curved ones. Alternatively, one can think of K3s as holomorphically symplectic surfaces. Their geometry is rich: K3s admit Ricci-flat metrics and have homogeneous parameter spaces, analogous to Teichmuller and moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces. Additionally, K3s often admit... More >

Indian Buddhist philosophers associated with the pramāṇavāda (logico-epistemological) school developed an account of mind and cognition that I term dual-aspect reflexivism.
