Usage-Based Insurance (UBI) is one of the most recent innovations by auto insurance companies that links the premium rates of customers to their actual driving performance. In this program, drivers’ behaviours are monitored directly while they drive...

We consider covering graphs obtained by lifting trees as voltage graphs over cyclic groups. We generalize a tool of Hell, Nishiyama, and Stacho, known as the billiard strategy, for constructing Hamiltonian cycles in the covering graphs of paths. The...

In a proportional contact representation of a planar graph, each vertex is represented by a simple polygon with area proportional to a given weight, and edges are represented by adjacencies between the corresponding pairs of polygons. We show how to...

As the underlying configuration behind many elegant finite structures, partial difference sets have been intensively studied in design theory, finite geometry, coding theory, and graph theory. In the first part of this talk, I will showcase that...

Sharpness is a generic assumption in continuous optimization that bounds the distance to the set of minimizers in terms of the suboptimality in the objective function. It leads to the acceleration of first-order optimization methods via so-called...

The defining property of fine moduli stacks (of curves) is that they have 'universal families' which translates the study of a family of (curves) as the study of morphisms to moduli stacks. I will explain this idea using Hom_{n}(P^1, Mbar_{1,1}) the...
