PIMS- SFU CSC Seminar: Graeme McCaig

An intriguing application of Deep Learning research is the use of Deep Convolutional Neural Networks (DCNNs) for image processing, as seen for example in the Prisma app and the Deep Dream algorithm. At SFU SIAT's iVizLab, we are using DCNNs within...

PIMS- SFU CS Distinguished Colloquium: Mike Eldred

In the simulation of complex physics, multiple model forms of varying fidelity and resolution are commonly available. In computational fluid dynamics, for example, common model fidelities include potential flow, inviscid Euler, Reynolds-averaged...

PIMS-SFU CSC Seminar: Zirui Zhou

Error bounds, which refer to inequalities that bound the distance of vectors in a test set to a given set by a residual function, have proven to be extremely useful in analyzing the convergence rates of a host of iterative methods for solving...

Fall 2017 West Coast Optimization Meeting

The West Coast Optimization Meeting (WCOM) has a long tradition as a regional meeting bringing together scientists working in optimization and related areas. This will be third time SFU has hosted this meeting. Last year's meeting at UBC featured 8...

Introduction to SageMath, a free mathematics software system

SageMath is free and open-source mathematical software which started in 2004. Its features cover many aspects of mathematics, from basic arithmetic and calculus to advanced research mathematics in algebra,mcombinatorics, numerical mathematics...

PIMS- SFU CSC Seminar: Michael Overton

In many applications one wishes to minimize an objective function that is not convex and is not differentiable at its minimizers. We discuss two algorithms for minimization of nonsmooth, nonconvex functions. Gradient Sampling is a simple method that...

Cascade RAIN

The RAIN Meet is a gathering of researchers for rapid and informal communication of ongoing research activities in computational and applied mathematics in the northwest region. It is intended to complement the PNWNAS, which feature longer lectures...

PIMS-SFU CSC Seminar: Bernie Shizgalâ€¨

A spectral method for the solution of integral and differential equations is generally understood to be an expansion of the solution in a Fourier series. Chebyshev polynomials are often the preferred basis set for many problems. In kinetic theory...

Scientific, Distinguished Lecture

PIMS-SFU CSC Distinguished Lecture: Mayya Tokman

Computer simulations of the dynamics of complex systems have become an integral tool of science and engineering. Large scale numerical models of systems evolving over a wide range of temporal and spatial scales are routinely encountered in a variety...

PIMS-SFU CSC Seminar: Razvan Fetecau

I will present an overview of various results on dynamics and equilibria of a simple first-order aggregation model. In spite of its simplicity, there is rich mathematics and a variety of issues that can be investigated for this model.
