Title: A Recommendation Systems Approach for Detecting Epistasis Abstract: There are a variety of methods used to understand and interpret an organism’s phenotype, the physical expression of one or more genes. Epistasis, the phenomenon of one mutation affecting the resulting quantitative or qualitative phenotype, is used to assess gene variation in an attempt to find a combination of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that contribute to a certain phenotype. Since one SNP rarely completely describes an organism’s phenotype, detecting these groups,…

Damerell’s theorem: p-adic version, supersingular case (Pavel Guerzhoy, University of Hawaii)

October 26 @ 12:30 pm - 1:20 pm

It is widely believed that Weierstrass ignored Eisenstein's theory of elliptic functions and developed an alternative treatment, which is now standard, because of a convergence issue. In particular, the Eisenstein series of weight two does not converge absolutely while Eisenstein's theory assigned a value to this series. It is now well-known that the quantity which Eisentsein assigned to this series is not only correct, but it has interesting interpretations and attracted much attention. It has been proved by Damerell in 1970…

Clouds and Climate (Prof. Tapio Schneider)

October 27 @ 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm

Title: Clouds and Climate Prof. Tapio Schneider Theodore Y. Wu Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering California Institute of Technology Abstract: Clouds are an essential regulator of climate. They cool Earth on average by 5 degrees centigrade. Yet despite their importance, the response of clouds to climate change is very uncertain. This is especially true for the low clouds that cover vast areas of tropical oceans. Their primary effect is to cool Earth by reflecting sunlight back to space. I…

Title: Exploring Phage Treatment for Bacterial Infections with Mathematical Modeling Abstract: Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a serious threat to global health today. A renewed interest in phage therapy – the use of bacteriophages to treat pathogenic bacterial infections – has emerged given the spread of AMR and lack of new drug classes in the antibiotic pipeline. This talk will feature mathematical models from an ongoing research project that began in 2019 during the Collaborative Workshop for Women in Mathematical Biology…
