Title:Inferring birth and death rates from population size time series data Abstract: Models of population dynamics are usually formulated and analyzed with net growth rates. However, separately identifying birth and death rates is significant in various biological applications such as disambiguating (1) exploitation vs. interference competition in ecology, (2) bacteriostatic vs. bactericidal antibiotics in clinical […]

### 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 […]
