Strashimir Popvassilev, CCNY, discusses "Sets of Differences of Plane Continua"
Speaker: Strashimir Popvassilev
Why exp(-rt) doesn't work and what interest on money means
We are familiar with the idea that with interest rate r the discount at time t is exp(-rt). I will explain why this actually doesn't work and describe what ...
Two Paradoxes of Rational Choice - Prisoner’s Dilemma and Newcomb’s Problem
This talk will explain why rationality cannot be satisfactorily treated. It presents a classic model of rational choice, the Prisoner’s Dilemma, and well as a ...
A Sampling Technique for Rare Event Simulations of a Financial Portfolio
This paper introduces a new importance sampling technique to increase the efficiency of rare event simulation. The loss distribution of the portfolio is ...

Abstract: We will start with a striking result that a geodesic flow on a manifold with a Riemannian (Finsler, Lorenz) metric, perturbed by an external, ...
Mathematics Colloquium, Khalid Bou-Rabee , U Michigan, "How well approximated is a group by its finite quotients?"
Abstract. We present a systematic approach for tackling the question in the title by introducing some numerical invariants that quantify residual finiteness. ...

Abstract: As is the case in many information processing systems, in the nervous system information processing is performed by multiple neuronal networks each ...
Mathematics Colloquium: Julie Rowlett (University of Goettingen), "Geometric Analysis from Drums to Dynamics"
Abstract: Have you ever wondered why, when a rock guitarist plays high notes in a solo, he grips the strings down low on the guitar? Geometry affects ...

The Euler class of a group admitting a cocompact classifying space for proper actions was first defined by Lück and is closely related to several Euler ...
Mathematics Colloquium, Marian Gidea, Institute for Advanced Study, Topological methods in Hamiltonian instability
A Hamiltonian system represents a model for the evolution of a physical system. If the system is integrable, then all solutions are rather explicit. A typical ...
