One very important concept in understanding a dynamical system is coherent structure. Such structure segments the domain into different regions with similar behavior according to a quantity. When we try to partition space-time into regions according to a Lagrangian quantity advected along with passive tracers, such class of coherent structure is called the Lagrangian coherent […]

One foundational pillar of low dimensional topology is the connection between link invariants and 3-manifold invariants.  One generalization of this has been given by Reshetikhin and Turaev to a surgery theory for colored ribbon graphs.  Then to complete the analogy rather than 3-manifold invariants we now have a 2+1 dimensional topology quantum field theory (TQFT).  […]

Job Talk – Howard Levinson – Candidate for Assistant Professor in Mathematics

February 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Candidate for Assistant Professor in Mathematics Howard Levinson, University of Michigan Seeing Clearly Through a Microscope The goal of microscope imaging is to obtain high-resolution images of cells.  However, due to the underlying physics involved, the resulting images are often blurred.  In this talk, I will develop the mathematical framework to describe this blurring, which […]
