Dimitris Giannakis "Data-driven modeling of vector fields and differential forms: spectral calculus.
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Dimitris Giannakis, NYU Title: Data-driven modeling of vector fields and differential forms by spectral exterior calculus Abstract:We discuss a data-driven framework for exterior calculus on manifolds. This framework is based on a representations of vector fields, differential forms, and operators acting on these objects in frames (overcomplete bases) for L^2 and higher-order Sobolev spaces built entirely from the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the Laplacian of functions. Using this approach, we represent vector fields either as linear combinations of frame elements, or as operators on functions via matrices. In addition, we construct a Galerkin approximation scheme for the eigenvalue problem for the Laplace-de-Rham operator on 1-forms, and establish its spectral convergence. We present applications of this scheme to a variety of examples involving data sampled on smooth manifolds and the Lorenz 63 fractal attractor. This work is in collaboration with Tyrus Berry

Event Image  CTL Toolkit: Facilitated Discussions-Large Classes
12:15 PM - 1:15 PM

Effectively teaching larger numbers of students requires extra planning and management techniques. Logistical concerns, such as grading, feedback, and interaction, can quickly become unmanageable without strategic planning. In this discussion-based session, we will hear from faculty about some of the problems they have encountered in their large classes and solutions that proved successful. Join us to share your thoughts, listen to others, and leave with a few techniques that you can use to tweak your large (online and/or on campus) class!
Jeff Adams " Unipotent Representations ."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Jeff Adams (Maryland) Abstract: In 1980 Jim Arthur conjectured the existence of certain "unipotent" representations of reductive groups over local fields, which should play a fundamental role in the study of automorphic forms. Arthur did not give a definition of these representations (only some properties), and they are still not well understood, even in the case of Archimedean fields. I will give an update on the progress in this area, with a focus on the real field. An aspect of this is the Atlas of Lie Groups and Representations, which is a software project to, among other things, understand unipotent representations and the unitary dual of real reductive groups.

Odyssey course: Growing Old in an Aging Society
6:45 PM - 8:45 PM

A REQUIRED COURSE in JHU's Certificate on Aging Program (COA), but enrollment is open to all. Begins Feb. 26 and runs for 8 weeks. Who is considered old in our society? Do people still retire completely and if so, what do they do with their time? Where do they live? How do relationships with family and friends change? What impact will the growing number of older adults have on healthcare and other organizations in this country? Participants will address these and other questions, probing social aspects of the aging process. Beginning with a look at how our society defines older adulthood, we examine social theories of aging; demographic trends; special challenges facing older women and minorities; how to better prepare for a positive aging experience; and what we can expect in the 21st century. Jennifer L. FitzPatrick, M.S.W., L.C.S.W.-C., CSP, founder of Jenerations Health Education, Inc., is a national speaker and author of "Cruising Through Caregiving: Reducing The Stress of Caring For Your Loved One." 916.201.01 Homewood Campus $280 (16 hours) 8 sessions Mon., Feb. 26-Apr. 23, 6:45–8:45 p.m. No class Apr. 2.
