346 Gordon Palmer Hall 505 Hackberry Lane, Tuscaloosa, AL, United States

AWM and AMS are proud to present our next movie night on Thursday, April 6th at 5:30 pm in Gordon Palmer Hall 346. Snacks will be provided! The movie is called "Secrets of the Surface: The Mathematical Vision of Maryam Mirzakhani" and it is about the life of Maryam Mirzakhani, the first woman to win

Applied Math Seminar – Teresa Portone, Sandia National Laboratories

346 Gordon Palmer Hall 505 Hackberry Lane, Tuscaloosa, AL, United States

Title: Quantifying model-form uncertainty with an application to subsurface transport Abstract: Computational models are increasingly used to make predictions affecting high-consequence engineering design and policy decisions. However, incomplete information about the represented phenomena and limitations in computational resources require approximations and simplifications that can lead to uncertainties in the computational models’ forms and errors in

Colloquium – Hailong Dao (University of Kansas)

346 Gordon Palmer Hall 505 Hackberry Lane, Tuscaloosa, AL, United States

Title: Fractals and Syzygies Abstract: Syzygies are objects invented and utilized by David Hilbert in 1890 to study relations among polynomial equations, and have played a big role in the development of modern algebraic geometry. The quest to understand patterns of syzygies is both challenging and interesting, and sometimes reveals unexpected connections to other branches

Applied Math Seminar – Ali Pakniyat (Department of Mechanical Engineering, The University of Alabama)

Title: Dualities in optimal control theory Abstract: Duality is a mathematical principle which, when it emerges, signifies the intrinsic relations between two distinct concepts, theorems or structures. In this talk, I will present three dualities which emerge in optimal control theory: (i) the duality in the Minimum Principle (MP) between the finite dimensional spaces of state variations

Applied Math Seminar Date: Friday September 16 Time: 11:00am-11:50am Location: GP 346 Speaker: Shibin Dai (Department of Mathematics, The University of Alabama) Title: Degenerate diffusion and interface motion of single layer and bilayer structures Abstract: Degenerate diffusion plays an important role in the interface motion of complex structures. The degenerate Cahn-Hilliard equation is a widely used model for

Applied Math Seminar – Zheng Sun

346 Gordon Palmer Hall 505 Hackberry Lane, Tuscaloosa, AL, United States

Applied Math Seminar Date: Friday September 9 Time: 11:00am-11:50am Location: GP 346 Speaker: Denis Aslangil (Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics, The University of Alabama) Title: High-fidelity simulations of multi-physics turbulent flows Abstract:  In the real world, turbulence occurs in multi-material/phase flows, which in most cases involve materials with large density differences. Unlike incompressible single-fluid flows, the velocity
