An “Adinkra” is a graphical tool to describe a branch of particle physics known as supersymmetry. Understanding the mathematics of Adinkras shines a light on the underlying physics, as well as helps to explore new areas of mathematics. After describing the basic structure of Adinkras, I will discuss some of these interesting interactions between mathematics and physics.This talk is intended for a general mathematics audience; undergraduate students are welcome.

Regime transitions of liquid films flowing down a fiber (Applied Math Talk given by Prof. Claudia Falcon, UCLA)

Recent  experiments  of  thin  films  flowing  down  a  vertical  fiber  with  varying  nozzle diameters present a wealth of new dynamics that illustrate the need for more advanced theory. Determining  the  regime  transitions from absolute (Rayleigh- Plateau) instability is useful in the  design  of  heat  and  mass  exchangers for applications that include cooling systems and desalination. We present a detailed analysis using a full lubrication model that includes slip boundary conditions, nonlinear curvature terms, and a film stabilization term. This study brings to focus…

Applied Math Seminar: Mathematical model of Hematopoietic cell differentiation from single-cell gene sequencing data (Prof. Heyrim Cho ,UCR)

Recent advances in single-cell gene sequencing data and high-dimensional data analysis techniques are bringing in new opportunities in modeling biological systems. In this talk, I will discuss different approaches to develop mathematical models from single-cell data. Particularly for high-dimensional single-cell gene sequencing data, dimension reduction techniques are applied to find the trajectories of cell states in the reduced differentiation space. Then, we develop PDE models that describe the cell differentiation as directed and random movement on the abstracted graph or…

Matroids: a unified theory of independence (Mauricio Gomez Lopez, University of Oregon)

In this talk, I will give an overview of the theory of matroids. These are mathematical objects which capture the combinatorial essence of linear independence. Besides providing some basic definitions of this theory, I will discuss several examples of matroids and explain some connections with optimization. Also, in this talk, I will introduce matroid polytopes, which provide a geometric framework for studying matroids. If time permits, I will discuss some new proofs to known results that I developed with one…

Faster point counting for curves over prime power rings (Maurice Rojas, Texas A&M)

Counting points on algebraic curves over finite fields has numerous applications in communications and cryptology, and has led to some of the most beautiful results in 20th century arithmetic geometry. A natural generalization is to count the number of points over prime power rings, e.g., the integers modulo a prime power. However, the theory behind the latter kind of point counting began more recently and there are numerous gaps in our algorithmic knowledge. We give a simple combinatorial construction that reduces point counting over prime power point…
