SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Gregor Maier

Over the past few years, operator learning â€“ the approximation of mappings between infinite dimensional function spaces using ideas from machine learning â€“ has attracted increased research attention. Approximate operators, learned from data, hold...

PIMS-CORDS SFU Operations Research Seminar: Fatemeh Beik

In this talk, we study the performance of some preconditioners for accelerating the convergence of Krylov subspace methods for solving linear systems of equations with a block three-by-three structure. A brief discussion is included regarding how...

SFU Discrete Math Seminar: Kasra Masoudi

There is an interesting connection between chemistry and graph theory. This connection is highlighted by the relationship between a energy of a molecule and the eigenvalues of its graph. In the 1970s, a chemist named Ivan Gutman introduced a concept...

PIMS-CORDS SFU Operations Research Seminar: Yiwen Chen

Derivative-free optimization (DFO) methods are a class of optimization methods that do not use the derivatives of the objective or constraint functions. Model-based DFO methods are an important class of DFO methods that are known to struggle with...

SFU Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Stanley Xiao

In this talk I will discuss recent work resolving Buchi's problem, which has implications for Hilbert's Tenth Problem. In particular, we show that if there is a tuple of five integer squares (x12,x22,x32,x42,x52)(x12â€‹,x22â€‹,x32â€‹,x42â€‹,x52â€‹)xi+22âˆ’2xi+12...

SFU Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Pijush Pratim Sarmah

Every curve has an abelian variety associated to it, called the Jacobian. PoincarÃ©'s total reducibility theorem states that any abelian variety is isogenuous to a product of simple abelian varieties. We are interested to know this decomposition for...

SFU-UBC Applied Mathematics Day

The event will be a half-day event at SFU Harbour Center, featuring three speakers: Professor Giang Tran, U. Waterloo; Associate Professor Mirands Holmes-Cerfon, UBC; and Professor Jingwei Hu, U. Washington. There will also be a poster session...
