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.

Ruobing Zhang "Regularity and Degeneration of Einstein Metrics."
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Ruobing Zhang,(Stony Brook) Abstract: In this talk, we will review some classical and new results in the regularity and degeneration theory of Einstein manifolds. That is, we will discuss the effective curvature estimates on a Einstein manifold and the limiting behavior for a sequence of Einstein manifolds. A reasonable starting point is the regularity theory of non-collapsing Einstein manifolds, which has been well established in recent years. However, the regularity and degeneration behavior of collapsing Einstein manifolds are much harder to handle. Without any extra assumption, there are few analytic tools in the general collapsed context. In this direction, we will introduce some new regularity theorems (joint work with Aaron Naber) and open questions.
Nima Arkani-Hamed "Quantum Field Theory As Positive Geometry"
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Nima Arkani-Hamed, Institute for Advanced Study Title: Quantum Field Theory As Positive Geometry: Scattering Amplitudes And The Amplituhedron Abstract: Scattering amplitudes are a central observable in fundamental physics. They are the backbone of experiments at giant particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider. They have also played a central role in the development of quantum field theory, going back to the work of Schwinger, Feynman and Dyson nearly 70 years ago. Recent years have revealed extremely surprising and deep hidden simplicity and infinite-dimensional symmetries in gauge theory scatteirng ampltiudes. These structures are completely obscured in the conventional formulation of field theory using Feynman diagrams. This suggests the existence of a new understanding for scattering amplitudes where the usual rules of space-time and quantum mechanics--locality and unitarity-- do not play a central role, but are derived consequences from a different starting point. In this talk I will present such an understanding for maximally supersymmetric scattering amplitudes, which are identified as ``the volume" of a new mathematical object--the Amplituhedron--generalizing the familiar notion of convex polygons into the (positive) Grassmannian. I will describe how locality and unitarity emerge hand-in-hand from positive geometry

Yunqing Tang "Cycles in the de Rham cohomology of abelian varieties over number fields.""
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Yunqing Tang ,Institute for Advanced Study Abstract: In his 1982 paper, Ogus defined a class of cycles in the de Rham cohomology of smooth projective varieties over number fields. In the case of abelian varieties, this class includes all the Hodge cycles by the work of Deligne, Ogus and Blasius. Ogus predicted that all such cycles are Hodge. This conjecture is a crystalline analogue of the Mumford-Tate conjecture. In this talk, I will discuss the proof of Ogus' conjecture for some families of abelian varieties under the assumption that the cycles lie in the Betti cohomology with real coefficients. The proof is based on known cases of the Mumford-Tate conjecture and a theorem of Bost on algebraic foliation.

Mauro Maggioni "Geometric Methods for the Approximation of High-dimensional Dynamical Systems."
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Homewood

Speaker: Mauro Maggioni, Johns Hopkins University Abstract: I will discuss a geometry-based statistical learning framework for performing model reduction and modeling of stochastic high-dimensional dynamical systems. I will consider two complementary settings. In the first one, I am given long trajectories of a system, e.g. from molecular dynamics, and I discuss techniques for estimating, in a robust fashion, an effective number of degrees of freedom of the system, which may vary in the state space of then system, and a local scale where the dynamics is well-approximated by a reduced dynamics with a small number of degrees of freedom. I will then use these ideas to produce an approximation to the generator of the system and obtain, via eigenfunctions of an empirical Fokker-Planck question, reaction coordinates for the system that capture the large time behavior of the dynamics. I will present various examples from molecular dynamics illustrating these ideas. In the second setting I assume I only have access to a (large number of expensive) simulators that can return short simulations of high-dimensional stochastic system, and introduce a novel statistical learning framework for learning automatically a family of local approximations to the system, that can be (automatically) pieced together to form a fast global reduced model for the system, called ATLAS. ATLAS is guaranteed to be accurate (in the sense of producing stochastic paths whose distribution is close to that of paths generated by the original system) not only at small time scales, but also at large time scales, under suitable assumptions on the dynamics. I discuss applications to homogenization of rough diffusions in low and high dimensions, as well as relatively simple systems with separations of time scales, and deterministic chaotic systems in high-dimensions, that are well-approximated by stochastic differential equations. No knowledge of molecular dynamics is required, and the techniques above are quite universal. Ideas in the first part of the talk are based on what is called Diffusion Geometry, and have been used widely in data analysis; ideas in the second part are applicable to MCMC. The talk will be accessible to students with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests.

SOURCE Baltimore Week: The History and Institutions of Racism in Baltimore
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

School of Nursing

Join an important conversation to better understand the history and institution of racism that continue to play a major role in Baltimore today. Participants in the conversation include Steven Ragsdale, Elizabeth M. Nix and Matthew Crenson. Combined, they have decades of experience working with and researching various institutions within City of Baltimore. Steven Ragsdale, native Baltimorean and Historian, will moderate the conversation. Elizabeth M. Nix, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of History at the University of Baltimore. She is co-editor of the anthology, Baltimore ’68: Riots and Rebirth in an American City. Matthew Crenson is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University. He began teaching in 1969 in Urban Government and American Political Development, his primary areas of interest. Crenson has authored and co-authored several books including Downsizing Democracy, Building the Invisible Orphanage, and Presidential Power: Unchecked and Unbalanced. The conversation will discuss central themes that played a vital role throughout the history of the City of Baltimore. There will be time for audience questions.

SOURCE Baltimore Week: Believe in Music Performance
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

School of Nursing

Take this opportunity to learn about Baltimore from youth who live in and know this City. Believe in Music is a community-based organization with a vision to transform Baltimore’s children into advocates for their community by providing a platform for them to tell their own stories. Their mission is empowering youth with self-expression and community engagement through music and technology education. Believe in Music hit the national stage when they wrote a song about the 2015 Baltimore Uprising and their message for peace and unity called Believe in Baltimore. Youth from Believe in Music will be performing some of their songs and sharing stories about what it is like for them growing up in Baltimore. Come, enjoy and interact with these amazingly talented youth! The event will take place from 4:00 – 5:30pm in the School of Nursing Courtyard. Light refreshments will be provided.
