Alexander Ziwet Lectures presents: Gunther Uhlmann

April 10 @ 4:10 pm - 5:00 pm
1360 East Hall

Gunther Uhlmann, Walker Family Endowed Professor of Mathematics, University of Washington Colloquium. Harry Potter's Cloak via Transformation Optics, Room 1360 East Hall @ 5:00 PM Abstract: Can we make objects invisible? This has been a subject of human fascination for millennia in Greek mythology, movies, science fiction, etc. including the legend of Perseus versus Medusa and the more recent Star Trek and Harry Potter. In the last decade or so there have been several scientific proposals to achieve invisibility. We…

Women in Mathematics of Materials (WIMM) Workshop

May 14 - May 18
University of Michigan, East Hall
Ann Arbor, 48109 United States
+ Google Map

Materials Science is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on the discovery and design of new materials. Mathematics plays a fundamental role when developing models that describe the processing, structure, and properties of materials. This is a domain that encompasses many fields that include Continuum Mechanics, Partial Differential Equations, Computational Solid Mechanics , etc. These areas have evolved synergistically over the centuries, one field informing the other and together creating a solid foundation for resolving important issues in elasticity of materials,…

2018 Summer School on Random Matrices

June 18 - June 29
University of Michigan, East Hall
Ann Arbor, 48109 United States
+ Google Map

The summer school is the second installation of the highly successful 2016 Summer School on Random Matrices at the same venue (the University of Michigan) and by the same organizers (Baik and Nadakuditi). We plan to establish the summer school as a continuing bi-annual event. Random matrix theory is a study of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of (typically large) random matrices.

Recent Advances in Applied and Computational Mathematics: A Workshop in Memory of Professor Peter Smereka

July 18 - July 20
University of Michigan, East Hall
Ann Arbor, 48109 United States
+ Google Map

Peter Smereka was a leading applied mathematician who had tremendous impact on an unusually wide variety of topics in applied and computational mathematics. His work in multiphase flow and interfacial motion (e.g. the level set method) has been particularly influential and is considered among the classics of the field. Just as well known are his papers in material science, where he made many original contributions to the modeling and simulation of faceted crystal growth, epitaxial growth, and to the kinetic…
