SFU Discrete Math Seminar: Torsten MÃ¼tze

For integers k>=1 and n>=2k+1, the Kneser graph K(n,k) has as vertices all k-element subsets of an n-element ground set, and an edge between any two disjoint sets. It has been conjectured since the 1970s that all Kneser graphs admit a Hamilton cycle...

SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Sam Stechmann

In the past decade, (artificial) neural networks and machine learning tools have surfaced as game changing technologies across numerous fields, resolving an array of challenging problems. Even for the numerical solution of partial differential...

SFU Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Ben Williams

This is joint work with Uriya First. If $R$ is a ring and $n$ is a natural number, then an Azumaya algebra of degree $n$ on $R$ is an $R$-algebra such that $A$ becomes isomorphic to the $n \times n$ matrix algebra after some faithfully flat extension...

SFU Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Kyle Yip

A set of positive integers is called a Diophantine tuple if the product of any two distinct elements in the set is one less than a square. There is a long history and extensive literature on the study of Diophantine tuples and their generalizations...

PIMS-CORDS SFU Operations Research Seminar: Eitan Levin

Classical algorithms are defined on inputs of different sizes. In contrast, data-driven algorithms, that is, algorithms learned from some data, may only be defined on inputs of the same size as the data. What does it mean for an algorithm to be...

SFU Number Theory and Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Debaditya Raychaudhury

In this talk, we study the singularities of secant varieties of smooth projective varieties when the embedding line bundle is sufficiently positive. We give a necessary and sufficient condition for these to have p-Du Bois singularities. In addition...

PIMS-CORDS SFU Operations Research Seminar: Warren Hare

Derivative-free algorithms seek the minimum of a given function based only on function values queried at appropriate points. Their performance is known to worsen as the problem dimension increases. Recent advances in developing randomized derivative...

SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Hansol Park

In this talk, I introduce several first- and second-order models for self-collective behaviour on general manifolds and discuss their emergent behaviors. For the first-order model, we consider attractive-repulsive and purely attractive interaction...

SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Craig Fraser

Carl Jacobi worked in the 1830s at the University of KÃ¶nigsberg on what became known as Hamilton-Jacobi theory, and also on the theory of the second variation in the calculus of variations. The first was a subject in dynamical analysis, while the...

SFU Mathematics of Computation, Application and Data ("MOCAD") Seminar: Liam Madden

The memory capacity of a statistical model is the largest size of generic data that the model can memorize and has important implications for both training and generalization. In this talk, we will prove a tight memory capacity result for two-layer...
