About Devoured:

Americans’ food culture is constantly changing, and our eating habits are shaped by our values—mainly work, freedom and progress. In "Devoured," Sophie Egan explores not only how we think and feel about food, but also why we think and feel that way. What and how we eat says a lot about who we are; our diets are a mirror for our mind-sets. From eating lunch at our desks to obsessing about gluten to being enthralled by “stunt foods,” our habits range from devil-may-care to militant evangelism, and they offer insight into our lifestyles of overwork and compulsive individualism.

Matthew Hirn "Learning many body physics via multiscale, multilayer architectures.""
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Speaker: Matthew Hirn, Michigan State University Title: On convex finite-dimensional variational methods in imaging sciences, and Hamilton-Jacobi equations Abstract: We consider standard finite-dimensional variational models used in signal/image processing that consist in minimizing an energy involving a data fidelity term and a regularization term. We propose new remarks from a theoretical perspective which give a precise description on how the solutions of the optimization problem depend on the amount of smoothing effects and the data itself. The dependence of the minimal values of the energy is shown to be ruled by Hamilton-Jacobi equations, while the minimizers u(x,t) for the observed images x and smoothing parameters t are given by u(x,t)=x-∇H(∇E(x,t)) where E(x,t) is the minimal value of the energy and H is a Hamiltonian related to the data fidelity term. Various vanishing smoothing parameter results are derived illustrating the role played by the prior in such limits. Finally, we briefly present an efficient numerical numerical method for solving certain Hamilton-Jacobi equations in high dimension and some applications in optimal control.
