Title: Mahler measures in group rings (Lalin) Abstract: We will consider a generalization of the Mahler measure elements in group rings, in terms of the Lueck-Fuglede-Kadison determinant. A natural question is the variation of th more››

Estimation of High-dimensional Covariance Matrix

High dimensionality comparable to the sample size is a common feature in portfolio allocation, risk management, genetic network and climatology. In this talk, we first use a multi-factor model to reduce the dimensionality and to estimate the covarian more››

Character varieties of hyperbolic knot complements

To every hyperbolic 3-manifold M with nonempty boundary, one can associate a pair of related algebraic varieties X(M) and Y(M) called the character varieties of M. These varieties carry much topological info more››

Giving the physics a chance: how to reduce the impact of numerical errors

Numerical errors are generally a bother, but in the case of adverse mobility ratio flows, such as those encountered when injecting water or gas (CO2) in oil reservoirs, they can be a real nuisance. In this talk we discuss the well-known grid more››

Moving Unstructured Mesh Methods

Simulation of moving physical interfaces in 3-D is complicated by the need to (1) resolve complex realistic geometries with a spatial discretization, (2) accurately compute evolving physical fields on the discretization, and (3) evolve the di more››
