Paris/Berkeley/Bonn/Zürich Analysis Seminar: Ergodicity for stochastic dispersive equations

Seminar | January 24 | 9:10-10 a.m. | 238 Sutardja Dai Hall

 Leonardo Tolomeo, University of Edinburgh

 Department of Mathematics

In this talk, we study the long time behaviour of some stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs). After introducing the notions of ergodicity, unique ergodicity and convergence to equilibrium, we will discuss how these have been proven for a very large class of parabolic SPDEs.

We will then shift our attention to dispersive SPDEs, where the general strategy for the parabolic case fails....   More >

Optics-free spatio-genetic imaging with DNA microscopy

Seminar | January 24 | 10-11 a.m. | 290 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

 Joshua Weinstein, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard

 Bioengineering (BioE)

Complex cell populations, from the brain to the
adaptive immune system, rely on diverse gene variants, somatic
mutations, and expression patterns for some of their most essential
functions. This genetic heterogeneity not only endows intrinsic
properties to individual cells, but it also often operates at the
level of inter-cellular interactions. Technologies that jointly
resolve both gene...   More >

Thematic Seminar: The tautological ring of the moduli space of curves

Seminar | January 24 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall | Canceled

 Aaron Pixton, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

 Department of Mathematics

Let $M_g$ be the moduli space of smooth curves of genus $g$. The tautological ring is a subring of the cohomology of $M_g$ that was introduced by Mumford in the 1980s in analogy with the cohomology of Grassmannians. Work of Faber and Faber-Zagier in the 1990s led to two competing conjectural descriptions of the structure of the tautological ring. After reviewing these conjectures, I will discuss...   More >
