Title: On Certain Equations over Function Fields and Related Nonlinear PDEs

 

Abstract: The study of the subject matter in this talk is motivated by a desire to solve some functional and nonlinear partial differential equations such as eikonal and Fermat equations, which arise from and have interests in different areas of mathematics. Special attentions are given to different approaches and diverse complex analytic methods for finding all global entire and meromorphic solutions to such functional equations and nonlinear pdes, which seem to be hard to handle using available methods from partial differential equations.

Title: Modeling Cell-Cell Adhesion with Immersed Boundary Method

 

Abstract: This talk will describe a model of cell-cell adhesion based on cadherin force interactions. Each cell has a population of cadherins which can move in the cell membrane and interact with cadherins from another cell. Using the immersed boundary method, the cell membrane and cortex is modeled. The model is used to help determine what role the actin cytoskeleton plays in cell-cell adhesion.

Careers in Math Seminar: Lauritz Petersen (NSA)

Thursday, October 28, 2010

 

Lauritz Petersen will discuss career opportunities as a national security analyst. Also known as intelligence analysts, they use the process of taking known information about situations and entities and with appropriate statements of probability, the future actions in those situations and by those entities. They reduce the ambiguity of highly uncertain situations. 

 

The National Security Agency in Washington, D.C. is the largest single employer of mathematicians in the United States.
