Guohuan Qiu "Classical Neumann problems for Hessian equations and geometric applications."
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Guohuan Qiu (McGill) Abstract: The classic Neumann problem for laplace equation has many geometric applications. For example, Reilly used its solution to give a new proof of Minkowski inequality. Recently, Xinan Ma and Guohuan Qiu, have proved the existence of the Neumann problems for Hessian equations in uniformly convex domain in Rn. Motivated from Reilly and Ma-Qiu's work, Chao Xia and I also find geometric applications about classical Neumann problems for Hessian equations. We will talk about how to prove the existence of classical Neumann problems under the uniformly convex domain. Then we use the solution of the classical Neumann problem to give a new proof of a family of Alexandrov-Fenchel inequalities arising from convex geometry.

Hao Xu "Asymptotic expansion of Bergman and heat kernels ."
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Hao Xu, University of Pittsburgh Abstract: The asymptotic expansion for the Bergman kernel has important applications in complex analysis. Short-time asymptotic expansion of the heat kernel played an important role in spectral geometry. We will present our work on Feynman diagram formulas for the coefficients in the asymptotic expansion of Bergman and heat kernels on Kahler manifolds and their applications.

Rene Vidal "Global Optimality in Matrix and Tensor Factorization, Deep Learning, and Beyond"
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Rene Vidal, Johns Hopkins University Abstract: Matrix, tensor, and other factorization techniques are used in many applications and have enjoyed significant empirical success in many fields. However, common to a vast majority of these problems is the significant disadvantage that the associated optimization problems are typically non-convex due to a multilinear form or other convexity destroying transformation. Building on ideas from convex relaxations of matrix factorizations, in this talk I will present a very general framework which allows for the analysis of a wide range of non-convex factorization problems - including matrix factorization, tensor factorization, and deep neural network training formulations. In particular, I will present sufficient conditions under which a local minimum of the non-convex optimization problem is a global minimum and show that if the size of the factorized variables is large enough then from any initialization it is possible to find a global minimizer using a local descent algorithm.

SOURCE Baltimore Week: Engage Baltimore: Putting the JHSPH Mission to Work in Baltimore
9:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

The event will convene at the Bloomberg School of Public Health beginning at 9 am in Feinstone Hall with an introductory breakfast and opening remarks. The planning for this event is a collaboration between the student group SPARC, a JHSPH student advocacy group focused on our institutional capacity to dismantle structural oppression, the Office of Public Health Practice and Training and SOURCE. Throughout the day, there will be a broad panel of speakers, including artists, community activists, and academics who will lead us in a critical appraisal of how the JHSPH mission can be carried out in service of advancing health equity in our own backyard of Baltimore City. In the morning, we will engage in a critical reflection on these issues and in the afternoon engage more granularly in small group discussions about the development and implementation of several current JHSPH Baltimore-specific efforts. Registration is required for this event.
