On dimensionality and functional data analysis
20180228

Speaker: Philippe Vieu (Univ. Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France)

The talk will be on statistical modelling for problems involving functional data. Functional data are elements of infinite dimensional spaces, and their statistical analysis has been popularized in the last twenty years (mainly with RamsaySilverman's books, [9]), leading to a new field of...



Wow, so many minimal surfaces!
20180321

Speaker: André Neves (Univ. of Chicago, USA)

Minimal surfaces are ubiquitous in geometry and applied science but their existence theory is rather mysterious. For instance, Yau in 1982 conjectured that any 3manifold admits infinitely many closed minimal surfaces but the best one knows is the existence of at least three.After a brief...
