Peter Constantin, Princeton University – Brauer Lecture Day 3

May 3, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Overall Title:“Fluid nonlinearity” Lecture III: SQG in bounded domains. Abstract:I will present a global interior regularity result.     Biography: Dr. Peter Constantin, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ. Dr. Peter Constantin holds degrees from the University of Bucharest, where he graduated "summa cum laude" in 1975, and from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he received his PhD in 1981 with Professor Shmuel Agmon as his advisor. From 1985 to 2009 he was a professor at the University of Chicago, before moving to…

Bao Wang – Faculty Interview Lecture

January 16, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Tea and snacks available in Phillips Hall, Room 330 Title: PDE-Principled Trustworthy Deep Learning Meets Computational Biology Abstract: Deep learning achieves tremendous success in image and speech recognition and machine translation. However, deep learning is not trustworthy. 1. How to improve the robustness of deep neural networks? Deep neural networks are well known to be vulnerable to adversarial attacks. For instance, malicious attacks can fool the Tesla self-driving system by making a tiny change on the scene acquired by the intelligence system.…

Dongmian Zou – Faculty Interview Lecture

January 24, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Title: Robust Representation for Graph Data Abstract: Modern data are usually high-dimensional with noise and corruption. A useful representation of data has to be robust and address the data structure. In this talk, I will first present a class of robust models called the scattering transform that can be used to generated features from graph data. In graph scattering transforms, the representation is generated in an unsupervised manner based on graph wavelets. It is approximately invariant to permutations and stable to signal…

Shahar Kovalsky – Faculty Interview Lecture

January 27, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Title: Geometry + Optimization: towards computational anatomy Shahar Kovalsky Abstract: Geometric shape-processing lies at the heart of various branches of science: from finite element simulation in engineering, through animation of virtual avatars, to applications such as the analysis of anatomical variations, or detection of structural anomalies in medicine and biology. The demand for such computational approaches in geometry is constantly growing, as 3-dimensional data becomes readily available and is integrated into various everyday uses. I will begin my talk with…

Maria-Veronica Ciocanel – Faculty Interview Lecture

January 30, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Title:Topological Data Analysis for Describing Ring Channel Dynamics Abstract:Contractile rings are structures made of actin filaments that are important in development, wound healing, and cell division. In many model organisms, ring channels allow nutrient exchange to developing egg cells and are regulated by forces exerted by myosin motor proteins. I will present an agent-based modeling and data analysis framework for the interactions between filaments and motor proteins inside cells. This approach may provide key insights for the mechanistic differences between…

LGBTQ+ Allyship in the Classroom Workshop

August 12 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

A student-led group of undergrads, grad students, faculty, and staff within the Physics & Astronomy department has put together an LGBTQ+ Allyship in the Classroom Workshop. This is for educators to learn how to make their classrooms more inclusive for LGBTQ+ students. It is not associated with the university-wide SafeZone training -- this is a short event, administered by students, and specifically geared toward teaching in physics, astronomy, and math. (Some of you may have attended this event last spring --…
