Kittens on Campus
Dooly Memorial Classroom Bldg, 195B Monday, February 19, 2018, 11:30am – 1pm In this event we would bring kittens from a shelter (Operation Paw) to UM to promote adoption. Students, faculty and staff would be able to play with the kittens and pick one for adoption if they desire to do so. Operation Paw is a non-profit, non-kill organization that deals only with cats. It is important to note that this is a UM's organization event, not a shelter event, the shelter will just provide us with the cats. They have done a very similar event last semester in October in front of the study abroad office and the event was a success! If anyone decides to adopt a cat, they will have to fill out an application and the shelter will contact them within a few days, so there will be no student/faculty/staff walking around with their newly adopted pets. The purpose of out club is to raise awareness on campus of how much cats need our help in the Miami-Dade area, and this event would promote adoption and help us accomplish our purpose.

Geometric Analysis Seminar, Department of Mathematics: Some Recent Developments on Manifolds with Nonnegative Scalar...
Monday, February 19, 2018, 4 – 5pm Pengzi MiaoUniversity of Miami Some Recent Developments on Manifolds with Nonnegative Scalar Curvature Monday, February 19, 2018, 4:00pmUngar Room 506 Abstract: Scalar curvature is a basic scalar quantity of curvature. It is tied to local energy density in relativity. For noncompact manifolds, the Riemannian positive mass theorem and Riemannian Penrose inequality are fundamental results formulated on asymptotically flat manifolds that model isolated systems. For compact manifolds with boundary, understanding the impact of scalar curvature on the manifold boundary is tied to the quasi-local mass problem in relativity. In this talk, I will discuss recent developments on compact Riemannian manifolds with nonnegative scalar curvature, with boundary. The talk will be based on my join work with Christos Mantoulidis, and with Siyuan Lu, respectively.

Colloquium, Department of Mathematics: Nonidentifiability Issue in Parameter Estimation of Differential Equation Models
Thursday, February 22, 2018, 2 – 3pm Michael LiApplied Math InstituteUniversity of Alberta Nonidentifiability Issue in Parameter Estimation of Differential Equation Models Thursday, February 22, 2018, 2:00pmUngar Room 402 Abstract: Transmission models for infectious diseases using differential equations are frequently confronted with disease data. For instance, these type of models are used to analyze HIV surveillance data, for the assessment of HIV epidemics and estimation of true burden of HIV in terms of incidence, prevalence and the size of undiagnosed HIV positive population. Parameter estimation when fitting the model to data is a key step of the modelling approach, and can often be complicated by the the presence of nonidentifiable parameters. Nonidentifiability results in multiple, often infinitely many, parameter values for which the model fit the data equally well, while different choices of these best-fit parameter values can produce very different model predictions for unobserved quantities of public health interest. In this talk, I will begin by discussing various notions of nonidentifiability: structural vs practical,local vs global, etc, and different methods to detect and diagnose nonidentifiability. Then I will present a new mathematical approach to study the issue of nonidentifiability based on singular value decomposition and variance decomposition. I will then illustrate our approach with a case study of HIV estimation using an ordinary differential equation model. Some open questions for infinite dimensional models such as delay differential equation and partial differential equation models will also be discussed.

Abstract: Familiar mechanical phenomena, such as driving and parking a car, rolling a ball, and even the ability of falling cats to land on their feet (usually) are examples of an underlying mathematical concept that, in the 19th century, came to be known as "holonomy." As it became better understood, mathematicians and physicists began to realize that holonomy underlay many disparate phenomena, from the everyday situations mentioned above to understanding the curvature of space in Einstein's theory of general relativity. Nowadays, holonomy lies at the heart of both deep mathematical objects and high-energy physical theories, such as string theory and the still-mysterious M-theory, on which many theoretical physicists would like to base a "theory of everything."This talk will discuss some holonomic phenomena in everyday life, explore their underlying commonality, their appearance in more advanced situations, and try to provide some insight into why this idea has turned out to be so fundamental.   The McKnight-Zame Distinguished Lecture Series is made possible by a generous donation from Dr. Jeffry Fuqua (Ph.D., UM, 1972). These annual lectures are named in honor of Professor James McKnight, who directed Dr. Fuqua's Ph.D. thesis, and Professor Alan Zame, who was a close mentor of Dr. Fuqua.

Griffiths Conference Colloquium, Department of Mathematics: On Self-Dual Curves
Friday, March 2, 2018, 5 – 6pm Robert BryantPhillip Griffiths Professor of MathematicsDuke University On Self-Dual Curves Friday, March 2, 2018, 5:00pmFieldhouse at the Watsco Center Abstract: An algebraic curve in the projective plane (or, more generally in a higher dimensional projective space) is said to be 'self-dual' if it is projectively equivalent to its dual curve (after, possibly, an automorphism of the curve). Familiar examples are the nonsingular conics (or, more generally, rational normal curves in higher dimensions) and the 'binomial curves' y^a = x^b, but there are many more such curves, even in the plane. I'll survey some of the literature on these curves, particularly in the plane and 3-space, and some of what is known about their classification and moduli, including their connection with contact curves in certain contact 3-folds, some of which are singular. I'll also provide what appear to be some new examples of these curves.

The University of Miami presents Calypso, A Master of Fine Arts exhibition by Izia Lindsay
Saturday, March 3, 2018, 6 – 9pm Izia Lindsay: CalypsoExhibition on view: March 3 - 25, 2018Opening Reception: Saturday, March 3, 2016 – 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.University of Miami Art Gallery at the Wynwood Building2750 NW 3rd Avenue, Suite 4Miami, FL 33127 The University of Miami presents Calypso, A Master of Fine Arts exhibition by Izia Lindsay, featuring a series of artwork that reflects the essences of symbols in Trinidad & Tobago’s indigenous cultures, folklores, festivals and landscapes. Izia Lindsay is a mix-media artist from the twin island of Trinidad and Tobago. He is exploring symbolism in Caribbean iconography that is rooted in tradition but interpreted with contemporary ideas. Caribbean iconography is used as a basis to create his multi-layered artistic narratives. He uses bold, geometric shapes that juxtapose and intersperse to form his pieces. The thematic whole is an epic narrative reproducing the dualities of his turbulent, cosmopolitan Caribbean life. Lindsay is also known for his large murals that can be seen in Miami, one most recent being the columns at Shops at Sunset Place. He has worked and led a number of mural projects both in the Caribbean and the United States. Some of these murals can be seen in Wynwood Arts District, University of the West Indies, Trinidad, Suriname and Barbados. Lindsay is currently completing his MFA in multimedia at the University of Miami. *Calypso is a popular style of music that originated from Trinidad and Tobago. Calypso will be on view from February 7 - 25, 2018 at the University of Miami Art Gallery located inside the Wynwood Building, 2750 NW 3rd Avenue, Suite 4, Miami, FL 33127. A full schedule of exhibitions can be viewed at www.as.miami.edu/art. Gallery hours are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 10:00am to 6:00pm. *Hours may be subject to change, please call (305) 284-3161 to confirm times.
