Neil Chada - On optimal annealing schedules for Langevin algorithms (Joint with work Huy Chau)

12:00 - 13:00 07 April 2020

Join us for this research seminar, part of the SQUIDS (Statistics, quantification of uncertainty, inverse problems and data science) seminar series. Abstract: Simulated annealing is a popular optimization method designed to find global minimizers through perturbing dynamics with Gaussian noise. The continuous analogue of it is a diffusion pro..

Cathy Hsu (Heilbronn) - Eisenstein congruences and an explicit non-Gorenstein R=T

15:00 - 12 May 2020

Abstract: In his seminal work on modular curves and the Eisenstein ideal, Mazur studied the existence of congruences between certain Eisenstein series and newforms, proving that Eisenstein ideals associated to weight 2 cusp forms of prime level are locally principal. In this talk, we begin by discussing several generalizations of Mazur's resul..
