Applied math. talk: Minimization of the first nonzero eigenvalue problem for two-phase conductors with Neumann boundary conditions by Chiu-Yen Kao, CMC

January 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Zoom meeting United States

Abstract: We consider the problem of minimizing the first nonzero eigenvalue of an elliptic operator with Neumann boundary conditions with respect to the distribution of two conducting materials with a prescribed area ratio in a given domain. In one dimension, we show monotone properties of the first nonzero eigenvalue with respect to various parameters and find the optimal distribution of two conducting materials on an interval under the assumption that the region that has lower conductivity is simply connected. On…

CCMS Field Meeting

January 27 @ 4:15 pm - 5:15 pm

Hosted by David Bachman. This is a time for us to welcome each other back from break, share any news relevant to mathematics in Claremont, and break out into smaller discipline-specific groups to coordinate future course rotations.

Title: Networks in social systems Abstract: The spread of memes and misinformation on social media, political redistricting, interactions in animal populations, and the dynamics of voters during elections are among the many things that people study in the field of complex systems. All of these phenomena involve the interactions of individual parts, which come together to produce rich, complex collective dynamics. Obtaining a better understanding of how these interacting parts–whether they are Twitter accounts, penguins, or voters–respond to each other…

Title: No-arbitrage pricing in a market for position on a multilane freeway, with an application to lane changing Abstract: We introduce a trading mechanism allowing cars to change position in a multilane congested freeway by doing peer-to-peer transactions. For the car initiating the operation, or incoming car, the goal can be to increase speed, to have less speed variability, to join a platoon, or to join an exit lane that is slower but full. We focus in this paper on…
