Harmonic Analysis and Differential Equations Student Seminar: Sub-Riemannian limit of the differential form heat kernels of contact manifolds
Seminar | December 10 | 3:30 a.m.-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall
Hadrian Quan, UIUC
In this talk I will report on joint work with Pierre Albin in which we study heat kernel of the Hodge Laplacian on a contact manifold endowed with a family of Riemannian metrics that blow-up the directions transverse to the contact distribution. We apply this to analyze the behavior of global spectral invariants such as the eta-invariant and the determinant of the Laplacian. Time permitting, I... More >

Presentation | December 10 | 10 a.m.-5 p.m. | 412 McLaughlin Hall
Ten groups of students from the highly popular CE 153 Airport Design Class will present their final term projects. Project themes cover an interesting spectrum of real-time aviation problems, and futuristic concepts. Real-time themes range from topics such as redesigning airports to address climate change, analysis of delays using machine learning, airport-apron energy use consumption, and... More >

With the explosive growth of the smart society and Internet of Things, enormous amounts of information are available in the enhanced world around us and the cyber-world beyond. Hence the traditional human input/output modalities (sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch as inputs, and motor control as output) no longer have the necessary bandwidth or expressiveness to effectively deal with...

Vicinal (1,2-disubstituted) functional group motifs are ubiquitous in structurally complex small molecules that are of academic and industrial importance, including many widely used pharmaceutical agents. Many such functional group combinations, however, remain exceptionally challenging to synthesize. The goal of research in the Engle lab is to develop a general catalytic platform
for alkene and... More >

Modernizing the Columbia River Treaty: The role of adaptive management in an international water management agreement
Colloquium | December 10 | 12:30-2 p.m. | 223 Moses Hall
Tyler Nodine, Canadian Studies
The Columbia River Treaty (CRT) is a nearly 60-year-old agreement between the U.S and Canada that has been recognized globally as a model for international cooperation on hydropower and flood control objectives. However, the treaty has also had detrimental social and environmental implications. Now the Treaty is being renegotiated and adaptive management may help optimize multiple objectives in... More >

Arithmetic Geometry and Number Theory Seminar: Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer Formula for modular forms of arbitrary weight in the cases of analytic ranks 0 and 1
Seminar | December 10 | 3:10-4 p.m. | 891 Evans Hall
Dimitar Jetchev, EPFL and Inpher, Inc.
I will report on recent results on the computation of the $p$-part of the leading term of the $L$-function of a modular form of arbitrary weight at the central point in the cases when the order of vanishing is at most 1. Unlike the classical case of weight 2 modular forms, qualitatively different arguments are needed in the higher-weight case. After explaining the difference, I will indicate how... More >
