Oct. 23, 2013: What is a moving frame?

Francis Valiquette

Abstract: The technique of moving frames is one of the main tools I use in my research. Through an example, I will introduce the modern notion of moving frames and explain how it is linked to the classical Frenet-Serret frame. In later talks it will be my pleasure to discuss applications of moving frames.


Sept. 11, 2013: On the notion of condensation in some models of biological interest

Professor Livio Triolo
Dipartimento di Matematica, Università di Roma "Tor Vergata"

 Abstract: Three models with  some biological motivations will be introduced; they have in common  features of condensation/concentration. The first comes from K. Khanin and R. Khanin in their effort to modeling the growth of the axon as a long structure protruding from the neuron body. The second model (Kingman) deals with  the competition between selection and mutation in a genetic pool.  The third model deals with the random graph generation through preferential attachment with fitness, and a review of some results concerning the distribution of degree  will be presented.
