Large Inverse Problems and Infinite Dimensional Sampling: Stochastic PDE for Sampling Conditioned SD

There are a variety of important applications which may be formulated as inverse problems where the object of interest is the time-dependent solution of a dynamical system. Examples include the sampling of rare events in molecular dynamics, data assi   more››

Some applications of the graph of supersingular elliptic curves over a finite field

The graph of supersingular elliptic curves over a finite field connected by isogenies has many applications in computational number theory. In this talk we look at some old (in number theory) and new (in cryptography) applications of these gr   more››

Activation Analysis in Functional Magnetic Resonance Brain Imaging with Applications in Parkinsons Disease

This talk will present some of our recent work on spatial characterization of activation patterns in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the brain. Exploiting techniques for region of interest (ROI) characterization and statistical a   more››
