Gliobastoma Multiforme Treated with Radiotherapy - A Mathematical Approach
    - Inma Sorribes Rodriguez, Department of Mathematics, FSU
Time: 3:35pm Room: LOV 107
Abstract/Desc: We study a mathematical model based on two cell phenotypes, one more migratory and the other more proliferative, with transition between them. This presentation has two parts. First, we present global well posedness of solutions with particular attention to existence, uniqueness and convergence towards the unique constant steady state as time grows. Second, we propose a modification of that model including radiotherapy effect. We fit the radiosensitive parameters based on clinical data. From our conclusions we discuss its applications and possible improvements.

Inverse problems and regularization I & II
    - Jin Cheng, Fudan University
Time: 3:30-5:30 Room: LOV201
Abstract/Desc: This is Prof. Jin Cheng's tutorial lectures. Recently “Inverse Problems” became a hot area in Applied Mathematics. Indeed, a significant portion of the requests from the engineers can be put into the category of Inverse Problems. In this talk, we briefly introduce the motivation and background of inverse problems and the contents of the present research in this field. It is well known that the main difficulty of the inverse problems is the ill-posedness. This instability makes the numerical solutions unreliable if we do not treat this carefully. One of the powerful methods for overcoming the ill-posedness is Tikhonov regularization. We briefly explain the key idea of Tikhonov regularization. Some examples are presented. It is shown that the analysis of the mathematical models can give some hints on how to apply the regularization methods to practical inverse problems.

Modelling Limit Order Book Dynamics Using Point Processes
    - Yuanda Chen (Canceled), FSU
Time: 3:35 Room: 201
More Information
Abstract/Desc: I will give a brief introduction of limit order books. I will revisit the approach by Cont, Stoikov and Talreja where Poisson processes are used to model the occurrence times of events. I will discuss some modifications me and Dr. Kercheval are planning to make by adding Hawkes processes, which both capture the clustering effect and allow the introduction of dependency between different events.

Algebra seminar
Local Euler Obstructions
    - Xiping Zhang, FSU
Time: 3:35pm Room: 104 Love
Abstract/Desc: I am going to talk about MacPherson's local Euler obstruction and the proof of G.Gonzalez-Sprinberg on the algebraic formula.
