04/18/2018 | Mathematics Education Seminar | Professional Development of TAs through the lens of complexity science | |

04/17/2018 | Mathematics Education Seminar | Electronic Math Education Seminar (EMES) from MIT | |

04/16/2018 | Department Colloquium | Symmetries of Spaces with Lower Curvature Bounds | The classification of manifolds of positive and non-negative sectional curvature is a long standing problem in Riemannian geometry. In particular, restricting our attention to closed, simply-connected manifolds, there are no topological obstructions that allow us to distinguish between positive and... |

04/16/2018 | Analysis Seminar | Existence of Bounded Solutions to the Inviscid Aggregation Equation | |

04/16/2018 | Geometry-Topology Seminar | Mathematics of Paper Folding | Paper folding provides a rich source of problems in computational geometry, with applications from heart stent design to solar panel deployment (in fact featuring prominently in the 1996 Space Flyer Unit's 2D solar panel array). This talk will give a roughly historical discussion of the "classical... |

04/13/2018 | Applied Mathematics and Computation Seminar | Discrete Element Modeling of the Brittle-Ductile Failure Mechanism Transition of Quasi-brittle Materials | Tensile and compressive strengths of quasi-brittle materials such as rocks and concretes are often obtained indirectly from laboratory tests, for example, the Brazilian test and three-point bending for tensile strength and four-point bending and the scratch test for the compressive strength... |

04/11/2018 | Mathematical Biology Seminar | Accounting for gene-gene correlation in gene-set interpretation of expression data | Competitive gene-set analysis, also called enrichment analysis, is a widely used tool for functional interpretation of high throughput biological data such as gene expression data. It aims at testing a known category (e.g. a pathway) of genes for enriched differential expression (DE) signals... |

04/11/2018 | Mathematics Education Seminar | Discussion of "Taking a College Algebra Course - An Approach that Increased Students' Success Rate" | |

04/10/2018 | Number Theory Seminar | Equidistribution of sequences on the p-adic unit ball | |

04/10/2018 | Geometry-Topology Seminar | Dessins d'Enfants and Enumerating Quasiplatonic Cyclic Surfaces | A quasiplatonic surface is a compact Riemann surface of genus at least two admitting a highly symmetric, embedded bipartite graph, i.e., a regular dessin d'enfant. Just as there are only five Platonic solids on the sphere, it turns out there are only finitely many regular dessins, and hence... |

04/09/2018 | Department Colloquium | Linear Programming in Geometric Measure Theory | The fields of Linear Programming (LP) and Geometric Measure Theory (GMT) have witnessed substantial developments since the middle of the 20th century. At the same time, they have remained mostly independent of each other. We present results on two problems related to shapes in GMT that employ... |

04/09/2018 | Student Event | Pi Mu Epsilon Induction Ceremony | The annual Induction Ceremony for the Pi Mu Epsilon (PME) National Math Honor Society student chapter will take place Monday, April 9 at noon. After recognizing the individual inductees, we will be treated to an abbreviated undergraduate colloquium talk by Prof. Bala Krishnamoorthy from WSU... |

04/06/2018 | Student Event | Comedian Sammy Obeid | OSU Math Club presents Comedian Sammy Obeid. Sammy is a Lebanese-Palestinian-Syrian-Italian-American best known for his 1,001 day streak of consecutive comedy performances (1,001 Arabian Nights of Comedy). He has been featured on Conan, Last Comic Standing, and America's Got Talent. He was... |

04/06/2018 | Applied Mathematics and Computation Seminar | Developing Numerical Methods for both Near Feed and Target Physics on Z-Machine | Z-machine is the most powerful laboratory radiation source in the world. The high energy densities on Z are used to create intense radiation environments, measure the state of matter at high temperatures and pressures, and as a platform for fusion research. Recent experimental results on Z indicate... |

04/05/2018 | External | Gilfillan Lecture: Catalyzing the transformation of science learning | Dr. Manogue will use her experiences leading a highly successful curriculum redesign of the physics major as a model to explore with the audience the possibilities for learning reform in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the university. This method seeks to change the... |

04/05/2018 | Undergraduate Seminar | Fun With Low Dimensional Topology | Ever hear that there's two sides to every story? Well, here's something with only one side - and no boundary. It's lives in the fourth dimension, but often can be seen in Corvallis. In this undergraduate colloquium, you'll see novel twists in a Klein bottle as well as several topological manifolds... |

04/04/2018 | Mathematics Education Seminar | A short history of mathematics curricular trends (disscussion of Romberg paper) | |

04/03/2018 | Mathematics Education Seminar | Electronic Math Education Seminar (EMES) from MIT | |

04/02/2018 | Department Colloquium | From sequential homogenization to multiscale data reconstruction | Direct numerical simulations of pore-scale flow and transport in porous media require the knowledge of pore-space topology. Real porous systems, e.g. rocks, pose additional challenges since they usually exhibit multi-modal distributions in physical and chemical properties. These hierarchical media... |
