Keynote Address - Genetics Resources Core Symposium
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

"Deep transcriptional profiling of neurons during development and disease: Revealing hidden layers of information", Loyal Goff, Ph.D., Institute of Genetic Medicine, Department of Neuroscience, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
[multiple] Charles Belfoure - Reading and Signing
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Homewood

Local author and architect, Charles Belfoure, will be reading from and discussing his debut novel, The Paris Architect. About the book: "A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man's unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war." -Malcolm Gladwell In 1942 Paris, gifted architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him a great deal of money - and maybe get him killed. But if he's clever enough, he'll avoid any trouble. All he has to do is design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined German officer won't find it. He sorely needs the money, and outwitting the Nazis who have occupied his beloved city is a challenge he can't resist. But when one of his hiding spaces fails horribly, and the problem of where to hide a Jew becomes terribly personal, Lucien can no longer ignore what's at stake. The Paris Architect asks us to consider what we owe each other, and just how far we'll go to make things right. Written by an architect whose knowledge imbues every page, this story becomes more gripping with every soul hidden and every life saved. About the author: Charles Belfoure is an author and architect who lives in Westminster MD. A graduate of the Pratt Institute and Columbia University, his practice is in historic preservation working as both an architect and historic preservation consultant. The Paris Architect is his first novel.

[multiple] Persi Diaconis "Adding Numbers and Shuffling Cards."
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Persi Diaconis, Stanford University Abstract: When numbers are added in the usual fashion 'carries' occur along the way. These carries turn out to be a Markov chain with an 'Amazing' transition matrix. This same matrix turns up in understanding the Veronese embedding, in the character theory of the symmetric group AND in shuffling cards (the seven shuffles theorem). I will try to explain all of the terms above to a general mathematical audience 'in English'.

Event Image  Center for Environmental and Applied Fluid Mechanics (CEAFM) Seminar Presentation
11:00 AM - 11:50 AM

Gilman Hall 132

The Center for Environmental and Applied Fluid Mechanics (CEAFM) fosters research and teaching involving fluid mechanics by bringing together students, faculty, and researchers from the Whiting School of Engineering, the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, and the Applied Physics Laboratory. Research areas of the CEAFM faculty and students include fluid flow phenomena in engineering and science covering a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. This includes fluid flows that occur in industrial, transportation, and manufacturing applications, in ocean and coastal engineering, in the treatment of aquatic and air-borne contaminants, in planetary atmospheres and oceans, rivers, subsurface waters, and fluids deep in the earth's interior, in biological systems, and in the microscopic environments relevant to micro-fluidic engineering applications and to aquatic and atmospheric chemistry and biology.

[multiple] Persi Diaconis "Adding Numbers and Shuffling Cards."
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Persi Diaconis, Stanford University Abstract: A peek at the Mathematics of Statistics Work a day statistics has all kind of math in it. I will illustrate by explaining the mathematics of modeling graphs and networks. This touches graph theory,probability,optimization, analysis and 'graph limit theory' (a branch of additive combinatorics).There are practical surprises; sometimes, you can estimate n parameters based on a sample of size one. Sometimes, simple models(eg the edge triangle model) defeat the most sophisticated efforts. It also touches the real world because graphs and their models are everyplace. This is a normal colloquium style talk, no previous knowledge of statistics is needed.
