Abstract: PDE Apps for Education; Application to Heat Transfer, Elasticity, and Acoustics
Parametrized PDE (Partial Differential Equation) apps are PDE solvers which satisfy stringent per-query performance requirements: -second problem specification time; -second problem solution time, field and outputs; solution error, specified metrics; -second solution visualization time. Parametrized PDE apps are particularly relevant in many-query, real-time, and interactive contexts such as design, parameter estimation, monitoring, and education.
In this talk we describe and demonstrate our PDE app methodology. The numerical approach [...]]]>http://depts.washington.edu/amath/anthony-patera-mit/feed/0Andrea Bertozzi, UCLA

Title: Mathematics of Crime
Abstract: There is an extensive applied mathematics literature developed for problems in the biological and physical sciences. Our understanding of social science problems from a mathematical standpoint is less developed, but also presents some very interesting problems, especially for young researchers. This lecture uses crime as a case study for using applied mathematical techniques in a social science application and covers a variety of mathematical methods that are applicable to such problems. We will review [...]]]>http://depts.washington.edu/amath/andrea-bertozzi-ucla/feed/0Terry Rockafellar, UW

Title: Multifidelity modeling: Risk and Reliability in Stochastic Optimization
Abstract: Problems of optimization are concerned with making decisions “optimally” however in many situations in management, finance and engineering, decisions have to be made without knowing fully how they will play out in the future. When the future is modeled probabilistically, this leads to stochastic optimization, yet the formulation of objectives and constraints can be far from obvious. A future cost or hazard variable may be a random variable which a [...]]]>http://depts.washington.edu/amath/terry-rockafellar/feed/0Swartz Center in Theoretical Neuroscience established at University of Washington; Shea-Brown and Fairhall will co-direct

Title: The “Hole Story”: how to solve problems in multiply connected domains
Abstract: Motivated by problems arising in the applied sciences, this talk surveys a new theoretical approach to solving problems in multiply connected planar domains as developed by the speaker (and his group) in recent years. Multiply connected domains are “regions with holes” and are ubiquitous in applications; whenever two or more objects/entities interact in some ambient medium the analysis may call for the methods discussed in this [...]]]>http://depts.washington.edu/amath/darren-crowdy/feed/0CFRM MS program ranked #14 in QuantNet rankings

Title: Analogies between Bond Yields and Implied Volatilities
Abstract: Intuitions about bond yields can be used to model implied volatilities and vice versa. In particular, we link the shape of the yield curve to the graph of (normal) implied volatilities across strikes.
