In this lecture I give an overview of some of the classical results on the regularity of solutions to Navier-Stokes Equation. The overview includes the works of Serrin, Fabes-Jones-Riviere, Caffarelli-Kohn-Nirenberg, Constantin-Fefferman and Seregin-Sverak. I also explain how regularity questions for the flows of diffusions can be used to study Navier-Stokes Equation.

Abstract : For the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel, with average codeword power constraint, codes based on the statistical high-dimensional regression framework are developed. The codewords are linear combinations of subsets of vectors from a given dictionary, with the possible messages indexed by the choice of subset. An adaptive successive decoder is developed, with which...

Quantum computation and quantum information are of great current interest in computer
science, mathematics, physical sciences and engineering. They will likely lead to a
new wave of technological innovations in communication, computation and cryptography.
As the theory of quantum physics is fundamentally stochastic, randomness and
uncertainty are deeply rooted in quantum computation, quantum...

Cellular functions in biological organisms comprise of complex interactions of different proteins, DNA, mRNA molecules, and others. Sources of stochasticity in cells are multiple: some are due to inherent randomness of biochemical reactions between the species, while others are due to variations in cellular composition, cellular division mechanisms, etc.
In this talk I will present results...

The Karhunen-Loève (KL) expansion has evolved into the workhorse of functional data analysis: the Fourier representation it affords on the one hand serves as a basis for motivating methodology by analogy to multivariate statistics; and, on the other hand, appears as the natural means of regularization in problems such as regression, testing and prediction, which are ill-posed in the functional...

What are the theoretical limitations of computer power?
In a remarkable 1956 letter, the great logician Kurt Gödel first raised this question when he asked the famous mathematician and computer pioneer John von Neumann whether certain computational problems could be solved without resorting to a brute force search through many possibilities. In so doing, he foreshadowed the P versus NP...
