- 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 ...

- Mathematics Colloquium: Marian Gidea (Institute for Advanced Study), "How to increase energy with small effort"
- 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. ...
- Mathematics Colloquium: Kamiar Rahnama Rad (Columbia University), "High dimensional information processing with limited resources in neural systems"
- 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 ...

- Mathematics Colloquium, Gautam Chinta, CCNY, "Cubic forms and cubic rings"
- Mathematics Colloquium, Anders Karlsson, University of Geneva, "Noncommuting random products"
- In a seminal paper from 1963 Furstenberg inquired to what extent the law of large numbers in probability extends to a noncommutative setting when the random ...
- Mathematics Colloquium, Conchita Martínez-Pérez, Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain, "Euler classes of virtually solvable groups of type FP-infinity"
- 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 ...
- Finitely Presented Solvable Groups Conference
