Mathematical Models of Prostate Cancer
    - Johnna Barnaby, Department of Mathematics, FSU
Time: 3:35pm Room: LOV 200
Abstract/Desc: Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in neared there is currently no cure. Many different treatments are used to slow its progression, prevent and delay relapse, and provide a better quality of life for men with prostate cancer. Prostate cancer depends on testosterone and other androgens for its progression, and many treatments rely on their ability to limit the amount of testosterone cancer cells receive. Throughout the years, beginning in 2004, mathematical models have been developed that describe cancer progression and various treatments for prostate cancer. We will link at the development of prostate cancer, various treatment options, and mathematical models that have been developed.

Physical Activity and Inflammation: Effects on Gray-Matter Volume and Cognitive Decline in Aging
    - Carolyn Drobak, Department of Mathematics, FSU
Time: 1:30pm Room: LOV 204B
Abstract/Desc: In a paper published in Human Brain Mapping this past May, Papenberg et. al conducted an experiment using magnetic resonance imaging data to investigate one aspect of the brain maintenance hypothesis, which states that lifestyle factors may result in better preservation of brain structure and function. In particular, this paper looks at the role of physical activity and inflammation in gray-matter volume and loss of cognition. They sought to find any interactive effects on volume and cognition created by inflammatory biomarkers and levels of physical activity. While they didn't find any direct link between activity and inflammation, they did find that inflammation in older adults may exacerbate the negative effects of inactivity on brain volume and cognition.

Integral Bases for Differential Operators
    - Erdal Imamoglu, FSU
Time: 3:35 pm Room: 104 LOV
Abstract/Desc: The goal of this talk is to find a transformation that reduces a complicated differential operator L (with numerous apparent singularities) to a simpler one. To find such transformation, we present a fast algorithm to compute an integral basis of a differential operator L with rational function coefficients, and an algorithm to normalize it at infinity. Examples show that this often reduces L to an operator that is easier to solve.
