Applied Math Seminar, Department of Mathematics: Dirac Concentration in an Integro-PDE Model from Adaptation

Monday, February 18, 2019, 10 – 11am K.-Y. (Adrian) LamOhio State University Dirac Concentration in an Integro-PDE Model from Adaptation Monday, February 18, 2019, 10:00amUngar Room 411 Abstract: We consider a mutation-selection model of a population structured by the spatial variables and a trait variable which is the diffusion rate. Competition for resource is local in spatial variables, but nonlocal in the trait variable. We establish the existence and asymptotic profile of a steady state solution. Our result shows that in the limit of small mutation rate, the solution remains regular in the spatial variables and yet concentrates in the trait variable and forms a Dirac mass supported at the lowest diffusion rate. Similar result was independently obtained by B. Perthame and T. Souganidis via an elegant method. I will present a sketch of proof blending the arguments of both papers. This is joint work with Yuan Lou and Wenrui Hao (Penn State).

Introduction to the Science of Team Science

Monday, February 18, 2019, 12 – 1pm Introduction to the Science of Team Science Location: Don Soffer Clinical Research Center, Room 989, 1120 Northwest 14th Street, Miami, FL 33136 This session is led by Alexandra Mosser, Ph.D., Senior Manager, Research Development and Strategy, Office of the Vice Provost for Research. As scientists and scholars, we are increasingly encouraged to tackle our most complex research questions using an interdisciplinary approach. In fact, society’s grandest challenges – infectious disease epidemics, global warming, world hunger, childhood poverty- can oftentimes only be solved using team science. Understanding, then, how to conduct effective work in an interdisciplinary team is paramount to developing as an effective scholar. Fortunately, there is an entire body of literature that provides empirical evidence on how to most effectively conduct, manage, and support team science. In this interactive session, Dr. Alexandra Mosser will introduce participants to the burgeoning field of the Science of Team Science and guide attendees through how to conduct the most effective team science possible.

Combinatorics Seminar, Department of Mathematics: Permutations, Tensor Products, and Cuntz Algebra Automorphisms

Monday, February 18, 2019, 5 – 6pm Francesco BrentiUniversity of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy Permutations, Tensor Products, and Cuntz Algebra Automorphisms Monday, February 18, 2019, 5:00pmUngar Room 402 Abstract: We introduce and study a new class of permutations which arises from the automorphisms of the Cuntz algebra. I will define this class, explain its relation to the Cuntz algebra, present results about symmetries, constructions, characterizations, and enumeration of these permutations, and discuss some open problems and conjectures. This is joint work with Roberto Conti.
