SFU Theory Seminar: Vaishak Belle

We consider the problem of answering queries about formulas of first-order logic based on background knowledge partially represented explicitly as other formulas, and partially represented as examples independently drawn from a fixed probability...

SFU Discrete Math Seminar: Joris van der Hoeven

In this first talk out of two, I will review various well-known algorithms for integer multiplication, such as schoolbook multiplication, Karatsuba multiplication, FFT multiplication, and the Schoenhage-Strassen algorithm. The talk will also be an...

PIMS - SFU Distinguished Discrete Math talk: Joris van der Hoeven

This is the second of a two-part talk. In talk one, I will review various well-known algorithms for integer multiplication, such as schoolbook multiplication, Karatsuba multiplication, FFT multiplication, and the Schoenhage-Strassen algorithm. The...

PIMS - SFU Distinguished Lecture in Applied & Computational Mathematics: Anita Layton

Computational modelling can be used to reveal insights into the mechanisms of new drugs and to develop new diagnostic tools. Here I will discuss three major diseases: diabetes, hypertension, and autism. I will talk about how we construct models to...

SFU Discrete Math Seminar: David R. Wood

The dimension of a poset P is the minimum number of total orders whose intersection is P. We prove that the dimension of every poset whose comparability graph has maximum degree $\Delta$ is at most $\Delta log^{1+o(1)} \Delta$. This result improves...

SFU Theory Seminar: Jason Schoeters

The talk starts with a short survey on a mathematical game known as Racetrack, in which a vehicle moves in discrete rounds and can slightly modify its movement vector every round. The goal is to minimize the amount of rounds needed to attain some...

PIMS-SFU Applied & Computational Math Seminar: Dr. Brian R. Wetton

Results on a two way convection-diffusion problem; an asymptotic error analysis on a piece-wise uniform grid; and a framework for understanding quadrature errors in Finite Element Methods are presented. These results were never published, although I...

SFU Theory seminar: TomÃ¡Å¡ MasaÅ™Ãk

The celebrated ErdÅ‘s-PÃ³sa theorem states that every undirected graph that does not admit a family of k vertex-disjoint cycles contains a feedback vertex set (a set of vertices hitting all cycles in the graph) of size O(k log k). After being known for...

SFU Discrete Math Seminar: Alexander Pott

A function $f:\F_2^n\to \F_2^n$ is called almost perfect nonlinear (APN) if $f(x) + f(y) + f(z) + f(x + y + z)= 0$ all $x,y,z$ such that $|\{x,y,z,x+y+z\}|=4$.. The motivation to study these functions comes from cryptography, since the defining...

SFU Discrete Math Seminar: Pengyu Liu

Tree structures emerge in various sciences. It is challenging to compare and analyze tree structures as both the size and the number of trees are increasing and there are few tools to describe tree structures in a quantitive, accurate, comprehensive...
