Applied Math Seminar: Numerical approximation of statistical solutions of hyperbolic systems of conservation laws given by Professor Franziska Weber (Carnegie Mellon University)

November 2 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Statistical solutions are time-parameterized probability measures on spaces of integrable functions, which have been proposed recently as a framework for global solutions for multi-dimensional hyperbolic systems of conservation laws. We present a numerical algorithm to approximate statistical solutions of conservation laws and show that under the assumption of 'weak statistical scaling', which is inspired by Kolmogorov's 1941 turbulence theory, the approximations converge in an appropriate topology to statistical solutions. We will show numerical experiments which indicate that the assumption might…

Prof. Sarah Marzen

November 4 @ 4:15 pm - 5:30 pm

Title: Training dynamical systems to predict their input Abstract: Evolved systems seem to predict their environment. Even bacteria can implicitly predict future concentrations of scarce sugar or antibiotics, and emerging evidence suggests that even our retinae are able to predict what we see. How? We explore some basic design principles for what causes a system to predict its input, finishing with a call to arms for mathematicians to develop a better framework for understanding input-dependent dynamical systems or recurrent networks.…

Applied Math Seminar: Multiscale analysis and high-order schemes for nonlinear multilevel Maxwell-Bloch equations given by Prof. Qing Xia (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)

November 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In this talk, we will present a recent study of the Maxwell-Bloch equations that model the nonlinear interactions of light and matter, where the light is modeled classically by the Maxwell's equations with dispersions and the medium is modeled quantum-mechanically by the multilevel rate equations. We will show the connection between rate equations and the density matrix, where the former formulation is widely used in the engineering community and the latter in the Physics literature. A multiscale analysis of the…
