### The Smith normal form of a polynomial of a random integral matrix (Gilyoung Cheong, UC Irvine)

### The Smith normal form of a polynomial of a random integral matrix (Gilyoung Cheong, UC Irvine)

Given a prime p, let P(t) be a non-constant monic polynomial in t over the ring of p-adic integers. Let X(n) be an n x n uniformly random (0,1)-matrix over the same ring. We compute the asymptotic distribution of the cokernel of P(X(n)) as n goes to infinity. When P(t) is square-free modulo p, this […]

### Reading Topology from Open Books (Prof. Bahar Acu, Pitzer College)

### Reading Topology from Open Books (Prof. Bahar Acu, Pitzer College)

Title: Reading Topology from Open Books Speaker: Bahar Acu, Department of Mathematics, Pitzer College Abstract: How can we study topological shapes that are outside the realm of our imagination? In this talk, we will explore potential answers to that question by diving deep into dimensionality and topology via open books. Topology is the study of properties of shapes that […]

### Applied Math Seminar: Ivy Xiong (USC)

Title: A common pathway to cancer: oncogenic mutations abolish p53 oscillations. Abstract: The tumor suppressor p53 oscillates in response to DNA double-strand breaks, a behavior that has been suggested to be essential to its anti-cancer function. Nearly all human cancers have genetic alterations in the p53 pathway; a number of these alterations have been shown to […]

### Noise stability of ranked choice voting (Steven Heilman, USC)

### Noise stability of ranked choice voting (Steven Heilman, USC)

Given votes for candidates, what is the best way to determine the winner of the election, if some of the votes have been corrupted or miscounted? As we saw in Florida in 2000, where a difference of 537 votes determined the president of the United States, the electoral college system does not seem to be […]
