Xuhua He " Some results on affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties"
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Xuhua He (Maryland) Abstract: In Linear Algebra 101, we encounter two important features of the group of invertible matrices: Gauss elimination method, or the LU decomposition of almost all matrices, which is an important special case of the Bruhat decomposition; the Jordan normal form, which gives a classification of the conjugacy classes of invertible matrices. The study of the interaction between the Bruhat decomposition and the conjugation action is an important and very active area. In this talk, we focus on the affine Deligne-Lusztig variety, which describes the interaction between the Bruhat decomposition and the Frobenius-twisted conjugation action of loop groups. The affine Deligne-Lusztig variety was introduced by Rapoport around 20 years ago and it has found many applications in arithmetic geometry and number theory. In this talk, we will discuss some recent progress on the study of affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties, and some applications to Shimura varieties.
Todd Oluyink "Dynamical relativistic liquid bodies"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Todd Oluyink, Monash University Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss a new approach to establishing the well-posedness of the relativistic Euler equations for liquid bodies in vacuum. The approach is based on a wave formulation of the relativistic Euler equations that consists of a system of non-linear wave equations in divergence form together with a combination of acoustic and Dirichlet boundary conditions. The equations and boundary conditions of the wave formulation differs from the standard one by terms proportional to certain constraints, and one of the main technical problems to overcome is to show that these constraints propagate, which is necessary to ensure that solutions of the wave formulation determine solutions to the Euler equations with vacuum boundary conditions. During the talk, I will describe the derivation of the wave equation and boundary conditions, the origin of the constraints, and how one shows that the constraints propagate. Time permitting, I will also discuss how energy estimates can be obtained from this new formulation paying particular attention to the role of the acoustic boundary conditions. Cheers,
Wei Zhang "Archimedes' cattle, Sylvester numbers and Heegner points."
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker:Wei Zhang, Abstract:In the first lecture we will discuss two classical Diophantine questions. (1) (Archimedes' cattle problem) what is the smallest (non-trivial) integer solution to the equation x^2 - 410286423278424 y^2 = 1 (2) (Sylvester) what integers can be represented as a sum of two cubes (of rational numbers)? and how their solutions connect to class field theory for the rational number fields, resp., for imaginary quadratic fields.

Careers in Injury Prevention Webinar
9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit’s Webinar Series

Speakers:
Dr. Margie Peden was the former Coordinator of the Unintentional Injuries Prevention unit (UIP) within the department for Management of Noncommunicable Diseases, Disability, Violence and Injury Prevention at World Health Organziation in Geneva, Switzerland. She has coordinated work in the areas of unintentional injury prevention (including road safety, drowning and burns prevention), injury surveillance/surveys, and alcohol and drug-related injuries. Peden has authored more than 25 manuals and has published more than 55 peer-reviewed articles.  

Ms. Gayle Dipietro was the Global Road Safety Partnership’s (GRSP) Global Programme Manager of the Bloomberg Philanthropies road safety initiatives 2010 - 2016. Over the last 15 years, Dipietro has provided relevant technical and practical road safety advice to Governments, corporate and civil society organisations in over 50 low- and middle-income countries. Since 2010, representing GRSP, Dipietro also chaired a subcommittee (Pillar 4: Safer Road Users) of the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration.

Moderator: 
Dr. Abdul Bachani, Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bllomberg School of Public Health and Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit will moderate this webinar.

Event Image  CTL Teaching Toolkit: Access and Experience: Creating Compelling Course Content for Today’s Visual L
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

Please join CTL for our next ​Toolkit Workshop - Access and Experience: Creating Compelling Course Content for Today’s Visual Learners. The session will be moderated by our Video Production Coordinator and will focus on methods and best practices instructors can employ to create meaningful content for today’s learners. The discussion will involve sharing some of the most innovative content created by faculty and CTL over the last two years. Participants leave the session with a deeper understanding of creating dynamic visual content for their own courses. 

 

We encourage onsite attendance, but the workshop will also be streamed via Adobe Connect at http://connect.johnshopkins.edu/ctl-toolkit-workshop. Recordings will be posted to our Toolkit Events page at a later date. No registration is needed. If you have any questions, please contact JHSPH_Toolkit@jhu.edu or your Instructional Designer.

Tyrus Berry "What geometries can we learn from data?."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Tyrus Berry,George Mason University Abstract: In the field of manifold learning, the foundational theoretical results of Coifman and Lafon (Diffusion Maps, 2006) showed that for data sampled near an embedded manifold, certain graph Laplacian constructions are consistent estimators of the Laplace-Beltrami operator on the underlying manifold. Since these operators determine the Riemannian metric, they completely describe the geometry of the manifold (as inherited from the embedding). It was later shown that different kernel functions could be used to recover any desired geometry, at least in terms of pointwise estimation of the associated Laplace-Beltrami operator. In this talk I will first briefly review the above results and then introduce new results on the spectral convergence of these graph Laplacians. These results reveal that not all geometries are accessible in the stronger spectral sense. However, when the data set is sampled from a smooth density, there is a natural conformally invariant geometry which is accessible on all compact manifolds, and even on a large class of non-compact manifolds. Moreover, the kernel which estimates this geometry has a very natural construction which we call Continuous k-Nearest Neighbors (CkNN).
Wei Zhang "Modular cycle, lattice-counting and AFL."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Wei Zhang Abstract: Following the first lecture, we introduce certain high dimensional generalization, through the study of modular cycles, i.e., special algebraic cycles on the moduli space of abelian varieties with certain additional structures. We will then discuss two (parallel) aspects: (1) the AFL (arithmetic fundamental lemma) connecting the modular cycles over p-adic fields to lattice-counting, and (2) a “continuous" version of the AFL concerning the Green current for the modular cycles over the complex number.
