Changyou Wang "Finite time singularity of the nematic liquid crystal flow in 3D"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Changyou Wang, (Purdue U) Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss the initial and boundary value problem for a simplified nematic liquid crystal flow in dimension three, and present two examples of finite time singularity. The first example is constructed within the class of axisymmetric solutions, and the second example is constructed for any generic initial data $(u_0, d_0)$ that has sufficiently small energy, and $d_0$ has a nontrivial topology. This is a joint work with T. Huang, F. H. Lin, and C. Liu.
Zachary Stone "Special Lecture by a Linguist: Spatial Methods in Minimalist Syntax."
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Zachary Stone, University of Maryland (Linguistics) Abstract: I will be sharing some ongoing research about mathematical models of bare phrase structure (BPS), including a new proposal for representing phrase structure as a topological site. I will demonstrate that the category of BPS phrase markers, viewed as membership-ordered sets, is not rich enough to keep track of the syntactically significant “spatial” data in the category of phrase markers. It can be shown that the data needed to enrich this category are roughly all of the idiosyncratic properties of MERGE. I then define a category of spaces which can model bare phrase structure derivations that is an abstraction of the order-relations in a tree. I will show how this category can be set up to naturally represent many “derivational” generalizations of the important spatial properties of phrase markers, such as equidistance, comp/spec/adjunct positions, projection, terms, and dominance. This is made possible by the ability to represent feature configurations in the derivation itself. Taken together, this will naturally force an encoding of the properties missing from the category of membership-ordered sets needed to represent phrase markers.

Carl Wang Erickson "Ordinary pseudorepresentations, modular forms, and Iwasawa theory."
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Carl Wang Erickson (Brandeis University) Abstract: When we study Hida families of ordinary modular forms that are congruent to Eisenstein series, the associated module with Galois action is "not always a representation," i.e. not locally free. However, it does carry a Galois pseudorepresentation, which is the data of characteristic polynomial coefficients. Joint work with Preston Wake has produced a universal deformation ring for ordinary pseudorepresentations, which can be compared with the Hida Hecke algebra. I will discuss how this comparison is related to cyclotomic Iwasawa theory, and produces a new proof of some of the residually reducible modularity results of Skinner and Wiles.
[multiple] David J. Linden - 'Touch: The Science of Hand, Heart, and Mind.'
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Homewood

JHU Neuroscientist David J. Linden will be discussing his new book, 'Touch: The Science of Hand, Heart, and Mind.' About the Book: In TOUCH: The Science of the Hand, Heart, and Mind, Johns Hopkins neuroscientist and the New York Times bestselling author of The Compass of Pleasure David J. Linden examines the sensation of touch—from its biology to its vital role in every aspect of the human experience. The particular organization of our body’s touch circuits, from skin to nerves to the brain, is an odd, complex, and often counterintuitive system, but it powerfully influences our lives, affecting everything from consumer choice to sexual intercourse, from tool use to chronic pain to the deep origins of language. Millions of years of evolution have endowed us with dual-function receptors in our skin that make mint feel cool and chili peppers hot; with a series of dedicated sensors and nerve fibers that predispose us to respond to a caress—but only if it’s done at the proper velocity; and with brain centers for emotional touch, without which an orgasm would feel more like a sneeze—convulsive, but not especially pleasurable. When we lift the hood of the brain, we discover there are actually two different systems for processing touch: one to extract the basic sensory information, and another to extract emotional information. These allow for powerful effects of context, so that a gentle pat from a romantic partner will feel welcome during a sweet, quiet, connected time, but as unwelcome as a crawling bug after hearing something deeply offensive. TOUCH is an engaging and fascinating examination of this critical interface between our bodies and the outside world, between ourselves and others. Linden explores every aspect of touch: what is the relationship of touch to a wide range of psychiatric and physical conditions, such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and gastrointestinal diseases? Why do women have better fingertip detection of fine tactile form compared with men? How do drugs like Ecstasy work to heighten and motivate sensual touch? What happens in the brain and skin when an orgasm is faked? Why does a hot bath feel great on a cold day and lousy on a sweltering day even though the heat sensors in our skin are activated to the same level in both cases? Why can watching someone else scratch make us feel itchy? Is there a biological basis for the use of acupuncture for pain relief? Why is tickle sensation unique and why can’t we tickle ourselves? As he proved in his previous bestseller The Compass of Pleasure, David J. Linden is a scientist who can write with the wit and clarity to appeal to the masses, and with TOUCH, Linden does it again—linking biology and behavioral science, he offers an entertaining and enlightening answer to how we feel, in every sense of the word. About the Author: DAVID J. LINDEN is a professor of neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The author of The Accidental Mind (2007) and The Compass of Pleasure (2011), he served for many years as the chief editor of The Journal of Neurophysiology. He lives in Baltimore, Maryland with his two children.
