Event Image  CTL Toolkit: CoursePlus GROUPS
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

The Toolkit Workshop will discuss the benefits of using Course Groups and strategically planning resources and activities tied to the tool. During the session, CTL will demonstrate the process of setting up Groups, including the option to assign students randomly. We will also explore best practices for using the CoursePlus resources that can be set as private to groups to help facilitate communication, enrich class discussion, and foster a virtual environment rich for sharing and collaborative learning.

We encourage onsite attendance, but the Groups workshop will also be streamed via Adobe Connect at Recordings will be posted to our Toolkit Events page at a later date.

John Harlim "Nonparametric modeling for prediction and data assimilation."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Speaker: John Harlim, The Pennsylvania State University Abstract: I will discuss a nonparametric modeling approach for forecasting stochastic dynamical systems on smooth manifolds embedded in Euclidean space. This approach allows one to evolve the probability distribution of non-trivial dynamical systems with an equation-free modeling. In the second part of this talk, I will discuss a nonparametric estimation of likelihood functions using data-driven basis functions and the theory of kernel embeddings of conditional distributions developed in the machine learning community. I will demonstrate how to use this likelihood function to estimate biased modeling error in assimilating cloudy satellite brightness temperature-like quantities.
Richard Melrose "Hodge theory for the Weil-Petersson metric on Riemann moduli spaces"
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Speaker: Richard Melrose, MIT Abstract: The Riemann moduli spaces, for the complex structures on an n-fold punctured Riemann surface, $\mathcal{M}_{g,n},$ carry natural Riemannian structures the most conspicuous of which is the Weil-Petersson metric. Although the space has a natural compactification to a smooth complex orbifold, the metric does not extend smoothly across the compactifying divisors. Nevertheless in work with Jesse Gell-Redman (based on earlier results with Xuwen Zhu) it is shown that the $L^2$ cohomology, the space of square-integrable harmonic forms on the interior, is naturally isomorphic with the cohomology of the compactified space. In this talk I will show how this is proved and also indicate some open questions.
