Michael Lipnowski " Growth of the smallest 1-form eigenvalue on hyperbolic manifolds"
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Speaker: Michael Lipnowski (Toronto) Title: Growth of the smallest 1-form eigenvalue on hyperbolic manifolds and applications to torsion homology growth Abstract: Joint work with Mark Stern. We relate small 1-form eigenvalues to relative cycle complexity on hyperbolic manifolds: small eigenvalues correspond to closed geodesics no multiple of which bounds a surface of small genus. We describe potential applications of this equivalence principle toward proving optimal torsion homology growth in families of congruence, arithmetic hyperbolic 3-manifolds.

Event Image  CTL Toolkit:Introduction to Active Learning
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

Please join the Center for Teaching and Learning for a Teaching Toolkit Workshop on an Introduction to Active Learning.  We encourage onsite attendance, but the workshop will also be streamed via Adobe Connect at Recordings of the workshop will be posted to our Toolkit events page at a later date.

During this session, we will

  • provide an overview of active learning
  • introduce & explore active learning techniques which engage students in meaningful ways, whether online or on-campus
  • discuss obstacles and solutions to issues that sometimes arise with active learning

 If you have any questions, please contact or your Instructional Designer. 

Yannis Kevrekidis "Data and the computational modeling of complex/multiscale systems"
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Speaker: Yannis Kevrekidis, Johns Hopkins University Title:No equations, no variables, no parameters, no space, no time: Data and the computational modeling of complex/multiscale systems Abstract: Obtaining predictive dynamical equations from data lies at the heart of science and engineering modeling, and is the linchpin of our technology. In mathematical modeling one typically progresses from observations of the world (and some serious thinking!) first to equations for a model, and then to the analysis of the model to make predictions. Good mathematical models give good predictions (and inaccurate ones do not) - but the computational tools for analyzing them are the same: algorithms that are typically based on closed form equations. While the skeleton of the process remains the same, today we witness the development of mathematical techniques that operate directly on observations -data-, and appear to circumvent the serious thinking that goes into selecting variables and parameters and deriving accurate equations. The process then may appear to the user a little like making predictions by "looking in a crystal ball". Yet the "serious thinking" is still there and uses the same -and some new- mathematics: it goes into building algorithms that "jump directly" from data to the analysis of the model (which is now not available in closed form) so as to make predictions. Our work here presents a couple of efforts that illustrate this ``new” path from data to predictions. It really is the same old path, but it is travelled by new means.
