### Applied Math Seminar: Eulerian Approaches based on the Level Set Method for Visualizing Continuous Dynamical Systems (Shingyu Leung, Department of Mathematics, HKUST)

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 […]

### Applying Quantum Representations of Mapping Class Groups (Wade Bloomquist, UCSB)

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

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 […]
