SUMMARY;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE:"The Limit Shape of the Leaky Abelian Sandpile Model"
LOCATION: Sign in to download the location
URL:https://ccc.rochester.edu/rsvp?id=1038875
DESCRIPTION:Professor Alevy of the Mathematics department will be giving a talk titled, "The Limit Shape of the Leaky Abelian Sandpile Model":. . The leaky abelian sandpile model is a growth model exhibiting fractal structure. In the model, sand diffuses along vertices of Z^2 according to a toppling rule for unstable vertices. Striking patterns and long range structures are produced from these local rules. We compute the limit shape as a function of d in the symmetric case where each topple sends an equal amount of sand to each neighbor and leaks a portion 1-1/d of its sand.\n\nEvent Organizer: Eli Sun (esun4@u.rochester.edu)\n---\nEVENT DETAILS: https://ccc.rochester.edu/rsvp?id=1038875

SUMMARY;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE:Pi Week Special: Math Talk Friday with Professor Haessig
LOCATION: Sign in to download the location
URL:https://ccc.rochester.edu/rsvp?id=1046322
DESCRIPTION:Professor Haessig will be giving a special pi-themed talk for Pi Week!. . . . Title: The transcendence of Pi. . . . Abstract: The constant Pi is used extensively throughout mathematics, even in contexts seemingly far removed from geometry where Pi first began. After discussing a few curious places where Pi pops up we will turn our attention to the notion of a transcendental number. . . . . Most numbers are transcendental, with Pi and e being two examples. However, transcendental numbers are not very well understood. For instance, it is unknown whether Pi * e or Pi + e are transcendental. We will finish the talk with a sketch proof of the Lindemann-Weierstrass theorem, which consequently easily proves the transcendence of Pi (and e). . . . . (Note: the talk is accessible to anyone. Our sketch proof of the Lindemann-Weierstrass theorem will only use the Taylor expansion of e^x.)\n\nEvent Organizer: Jessica Wang (jwang155@u.rochester.edu)\n---\nEVENT DETAILS: https://ccc.rochester.edu/rsvp?id=1046322

SUMMARY;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE:Math Talk Friday with Charlotte Aten
LOCATION: Sign in to download the location
URL:https://ccc.rochester.edu/rsvp?id=1059023
DESCRIPTION:Join us for a math talk hosted by graduate student Charlotte Aten! . . . . Title: My Hawaiian Earring. . . . Abstract: In 2018 I was invited to a conference on universal algebra and lattice theory in Hawaii. I designed an earring for the conference which depicts an object in lattice theory called the free distributive lattice on three generators. This lattice can be viewed as the collection of all monotone Boolean functions of three variables under a natural partial ordering. I'll show some of the linear algebra and coding involved in writing a Python script which uses the Sage computer algebra system to create an stl file suitable for printing the earring on a 3d printer. Please note: This talk is not about the topological space called a Hawaiian earring.\n\nEvent Organizer: Jessica Wang (jwang155@u.rochester.edu)\n---\nEVENT DETAILS: https://ccc.rochester.edu/rsvp?id=1059023

SUMMARY;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE:Professor Sevak's talk on The Abelian Sandpile Model
LOCATION: Sign in to download the location
URL:https://ccc.rochester.edu/rsvp?id=1072778
DESCRIPTION:Description: Given a distribution of sand particles on the plane, the abelian sandpile model gives a simple rule which says that any position which has too many particles topples and sends particles to its neighbors. Eventually there are no tall stacks left and the sandpile settles. The final configuration has many interesting features and there are many open problems about it. For example, it is not know what the shape of the final configuration will be.. . . . We will discuss a variant of the model where some particles disappear and show how the model can be connected to a probabilistic model of a walker walking randomly on the plane and demonstrate how this connection can be exploited to give exact formulas for the limit shape.\n\nEvent Organizer: Rain Li (rli44@u.rochester.edu)\n---\nEVENT DETAILS: https://ccc.rochester.edu/rsvp?id=1072778

LOCATION: Sign in to download the location
URL:https://ccc.rochester.edu/rsvp?id=1084826
DESCRIPTION:Title: Social Network Spatial Model. . . . Abstract: Social network models allow us to statistically represent the connections between people in a meaningful way, providing a visual display of such connections in what is known as "social space." In considering social networks, it often is of interest to additionally examine how some characteristic varies over a social space. Because of this, social network methodology is combined with traditional spatial analysis techniques to form the social network spatial model, which simultaneously models the unobserved locations of network members in social space and the spatial process that exists over this space. In this talk, the basis of latent position network models and point-process spatial models with be introduced, followed by an exploration of the combination of these two methodologies into the unified social network spatial model, along with its applications.. . \n\nEvent Organizer: Michael Herman (mherm12@u.rochester.edu)\n---\nEVENT DETAILS: https://ccc.rochester.edu/rsvp?id=1084826
