Mathematics Colloquium: Fernando Guevara Vasquez (University of Utah)**Thursday, May 3 2012 at 3:30 PM**
Mathematics Colloquium, featuring Fernando Guevara Vasquez (University of Utah), titled, "Active exterior cloaking for the Helmholtz equation," will occur May 3 at 3:30 p.m. in TLC 032.
ABSTRACT: We present a way of using active sources to hide objects from a known incident field. The active sources cancel out the incident field in a region while having a small far field. Since very little waves ...

Mathematics Colloquium: Jodi Mead (Boise State University)**Thursday, April 19 2012 at 3:30 PM**
Mathematics Colloquium, with Jodi Mead (Boise State University), titled "Inverse Problems and Uncertainty Quantification," will occur April 19 at 3:30 p.m. in TLC 032.
ABSTRACT: Combining physical or mathematical models with observational data often results in an ill-posed inverse problem. Regularization is typically used to solve ill-posed problems, and it can be viewed as adding statistical or...

Computer Science Colloquium**Tuesday, March 6 2012 at 3:30 PM**
Computer Science Colloquium: "How Can Problem Structure Analysis from Evolutionary Computation be
Applied to Biological Problems?" will occur March 6 at 3:30 p.m. in EP 122.
In Biology, understanding the interaction of genes with other genes and their environment is critical to understanding how organisms function and evolve. In Computer Science, understanding the "structure" of a problem repres...

Mathematics Colloquium: Hong Wang**Thursday, March 1 2012 at 3:30 PM**
Mathematics Colloquium: Hong Wang (University of Idaho) titled "Turán Number, Ramsey Number and The Regularity Lemma" will
occur March 1 at 3:30 p.m. in TLC 032.
ABSTRACT: One of the powerful tools in combinatorics is the regularity lemma of Szemerédi. This talk is to introduce this powerful regularity lemma and its related blow-up methods. We will begin with some basic definitions and then intr...
