Evolutionary Dynamics of Bacterial Persistence Under Nutrient/ Antibiotic Actions |

Biomathetics Seminar |

Time: 9:30am |

Carolyn Eady (Department of Mathematics, FSU) |

Circle Packing Cortical Surfaces |

Biomathetics Seminar |

Time: 9:30am |

Location: LOV 200 |

Circle packing is a quasi-conformal method used with triangulations. By superimposing a triangulated mesh on the cortical surface, we are able to apply this method to create cortical "flat" maps, or m... More |

The Things Every Graduate Student Should Know But No One Tells You |

Biomathetics Seminar |

Time: 9:30am |

Dr. Monica K. Hurdal (Department of Mathematics, FSU) |

Conformal Mapping and Brain Mapping |

Biomathetics Seminar |

Time: 9:30am |

Location: LOV 200 |

My reearch uses conformal maps to create "flat" maps of the brain. I will discuss some of the mathematics of circle packing and how it can be used to create quasi-conformal maps of the brain. |
