6. Emil Artin Lecture

Jul 06 – Jul 06, 2017,
INF 205, Hörsaal

General Information:
Hilbert’s twelfth problem, also known as »Kroneckers liebster Jugendtraum« is the hope that roots of polynomial equations with rational coefficients can be expressed as special values of transcendental functions. In the original formulations of Kronecker and Hilbert, the roots were meant to generate (most or all) extensions of specific algebraic number fields with abelian Galois group; the Galois action should be visible in terms of the transcendental function. This approach was developed extensively in the Shimura-Taniyama theory of complex multi plication. In the Langlands reciprocity conjectures, roots of polynomial equations are replaced by representations of Galois groups, which in general are not abelian; the role of the transcendental functions is played by automorphic forms, especially when they contribute to the cohomology of locally symmetric spaces. The lecture will review some recent results in this direction, with an emphasis on open problems.

Higher Teichmüller theory and Higgs bundles - Interactions and new trends

Nov 02 – Nov 06, 2015,

General Information:
Higher Teichmüller theory brings together three apparently unrelated mathematical objects: geometric structures, representation varieties and Higgs bundles. The two first are a valuable tool to study the shape of spaces, how they can vary and what is preserved under given changes. The second comes from the study of differential equations closely connected to Physics: a Higgs bundle can be though of as a generalization of a Higgs boson.

Workshop on: Sparse Tomographic Reconstruction - Theoretical and Numerical Aspects

Mar 19 – Mar 20, 2015,
Heidelberg, Germany

General Information:
The goal of this workshop is to present state of the art results, on both theoretical guarantees and numerical algorithms, for tomographic reconstruction regularized by co-/sparsity, total variation etc. We aim to pinpoint the gap between the practical efficiency of recent regularization methods, and our mathematical understanding of low complexity models in tomographic inversion. While many theoretical guarantees rely on uniform analysis with random measurements, tomographic reconstruction requires more customized mathematical tools and algorithms to capture the geometry of signals and images that can be stably recovered. This includes for instance total variation minimization from tomographic measurements and the development of novel recovery algorithms that can cope with huge problem sizes like occuring e.g. in 3D tomography. The workshop will gather talks by leading experts in the fields of compressive sensing and large-scale numerical optimization.

Über den Körper mit einem Element und seine Definitionen

Thursday, 06. November, 2014, 17:00h
INF 288, HS 2

Prof. Dr. Matthias Flach
Caltech, USA

Nach einer ersten Erwähnung durch Tits im Jahr 1956 und einer langen Phase der Nichtbeachtung ist die Idee des "Körpers mit einem Element" in den letzten zehn Jahren von mindestens zwölf verschiedenen Autoren aufgegriffen worden. Es geht dabei um Geometrie, die als Limesfall von Geometrien über endlichen Körpern entsteht, und um algebraische Varietäten, die "universell", also über beliebigen Grundkörpern definiert werden können. Der Vortrag diskutiert einige der vielen in letzter Zeit vorgeschlagenen Definitionen von Varietäten, oder Schemata, über dem "Körper mit einem Element" und fügt eine weitere hinzu, die durch die Beschreibung der Werte von Zetafunktionen arithmetischer Schemata durch Weil-etale Kohomologie motiviert ist.

Elliptic Curves and Explicit Class Field Theory

Prof. Dr. Henri Darmon
McGill University, Canada

The values of the exponential function $e^{2\pi i z}$ and of the modular function $j(z)$ (at rational and quadratic imaginary arguments, respectively) lead to explicit generators for essentially all abelian extensions of the rational numbers and of quadratic imaginary fields. The associated theories of cyclotomic fields and of complex multiplication are quite rich and were actively pursued in the 19th century. Kronecker's "Jugendtraum", raised again by Hilbert as the twelfth in his celebrated list of open problems for the new century, seeks to extend these theories to base fields other than the rationals or quadratic imaginary fields. More than a hundred years later, Hilbert's 12th problem is still largely open. This lecture shall survey the history of this problem and describe some of the more recent attempts to make progress, based on the study of elliptic curves and of their rational points.

C*-algebras and their K-theory, an introduction

Joachim Cuntz, Uni Münster

A C*-algebra is an involutive algebra which is isomorphic to a closed and *-closed algebra of operators on a Hilbert space. The K-theory for C*-algebras generalizes the topological K-theory introduced by Atiyah- Hirzebruch and has close commections to index theory (in the sense of Atyah-Singer) as well as applications in different fields such as for instance the classification of differentiable manifolds. In this series of lectures I will try to give an introduction for non-experts to the basics of the theory of C*-algebras (first lecture) and of their topological K-theory (second lecture). In the third lecture I plan to discuss recent examples of C*-algebras arising naturally from structures in algebraic number theory. The description of their K-theory is related to number theoretic concepts.

INF 288, HS2

"The Standard Model from String Theory: a Challenge in Physics and Mathematics"
Prof. Andre Lukas
(Oxford University)
The talk will be discussing the attempts to relate string theory to realistic particle physics, particularly in the context of the heterotic string. String theory, formulated in 10 dimensions, requires compactification of six of its dimensions in order to relate to observable physics. This relationship intertwines the physics of string theory with the mathematics of six-dimensional manifolds, particularly Calabi-Yau three-folds. Methods of algebraic geometry and commutative algebra become directly relevant as tools to extract the physics of string models. I will outline this interplay between physics and mathematics and review recent progress which has led to the construction of a large number of quasi-realistic models from string theory.

The invitation to the talk is from Arthur Hebecker, Daniel Roggenkamp, Timo Weigand, Anna Wienhard

Many materials problems require the accuracy of atomistic modeling in small regions, such as the neighborhood of a crack tip. However, these localized defects typically interact through long-range elastic fields with a much larger region that cannot be computed atomistically. Materials scientists have proposed many methods to compute solutions to these multiscale problems by coupling atomistic models near a localized defect with continuum models where the deformation is nearly uniform on the atomistic scale. During the past several years, a mathematical structure has been given to the description and formulation of atomistic-to-continuum coupling methods, and corresponding numerical analysis has clarified the relation between the various methods and their sources of error. This lecture will begin by introducing the physical and mathematical background and then presenting the current state of numerical analysis for atomistic-to-continuum coupling methods.

"On hierarchical copula models in high dimensions"

January 24, 2012
INF 294

Dr. Marius Hofert
RiskLab, Department of Mathematics, ETH Zurich

Archimedean copulas are well-known to copula theory and its applications. These dependence structures share many useful properties such as an explicit functional form, tail dependencies, and fast sampling procedures. However, Archimedean copulas are symmetric which implies, for example, that all bivariate margins are equal. To relax this rather strong assumption in practical applications, so-called nested Archimedean copulas may be considered.

After briefly mentioning other hierarchical dependence structures, focus is put on the class of nested Archimedean copulas including properties and sampling strategies. These copulas are still explicit and allow for different tail dependencies. Additionally, they have a natural hierarchical interpretation which is useful in various applications such as credit default models.

"On the uniform convergence of random series in Skorohod space and representations of càdlàg infinitely divisible processes"

January 17, 2012
INF 294

Dr. Andreas Basse-O'Connor
Department of Mathematics Aarhus University, Denmark

In this talk we will consider convergence of series of independent stochastic processes with cadlag paths (cadlag means right-continuous with left-hand limits). For symmetric processes, we show that finite dimensional convergence to a cadlag limit implies uniform convergence almost surely, and thereby extend the Ito-Nisio Theorem to the Skorokhod space D[0,1]. The main difficulties of dealing with D[0,1] in this context are its non-separability under the supremum norm and the discontinuity of the addition under Skorohod's topology.

We use this result to prove the uniform convergence of various series representations of cadlag infinitely divisible processes. As a consequence, we obtain explicit representations of the jump process, and of related path functionals, in a general non-Markovian setting. Finally, we illustrate our results on an example of stable processes. To this aim we obtain criteria for such processes to have cadlag modifications, which may be of independent interest. The talk is based on joint work with Jan Rosinski, The University of Tennessee.

There are 35 events.

"Speed of convergence of the threshold estimator of integrated variance"

12 April 2011, 11:00
INF 294, Room 214

Prof. Cecilia Mancini
University of Florence, Italy

In this paper we consider a semimartingale model for the evolution of the price of a financial asset, driven by a Brownian motion (plus drift) and possibly infinite activity jumps. Given discrete observations, the Threshold estimator is able to separate the  integrated variance IV from the sum of the squared jumps. This has importance in measuring and forecasting the asset risks and for constructing new tools to study the fine structure of the data generating process. In this paper we provide the exact speed of convergence of $\hat{IV}_h$, a result which was known in the literature only in the case of jumps with finite variation. This has practical relevance since many used models have jumps of infinite variation (see e.g. Carr, Geman, Madan \& Yor 2002).

We consider a mathematical model of a rigid body immersed in a viscous, compressible fluid moving with a prescribed velocity on the boundary of a large ball (channel) containing the body. We show continuity of the drag as well as domain shape stability of solutions in the incompressible limit, where the Mach number approaches zero.

14 July 2011, 16:00
INF 294, HS 134

Prof. Donald Richards
Department of Statistics, Penn State University

In recent research on the Riemann zeta function and the Riemann Hypothesis, it is important to calculate certain integrals involving the characteristic functions of N × N unitary matrices and to develop asymptotic expansions of these integrals as N → ∞. In this talk, I will derive exact formulas for several of these integrals, verify that the leading coefficients in their asymptotic expansions are non-zero, and relate these results to conjectures about the distribution of the zeros of the Riemann zeta function on the critical line. I will also explain how these calculations are related to multivariate statistical analysis and to the hypergeometric functions of Hermitian matrix argument.

"Floating (and Sinking) Bodies"

28 October, 2011, 14:15
INF 293, SR 215

Prof. em. Robert Finn
Stanford University

About 350 BC, Aristoteles observed that bodies denser than water could under some conditions float at a water surface. A century later, Archimedes produced a general theory that formally contradicted these observations, but which yielded remarkably good predictions for large bodies such as ships. Very little further literature relative to general floating criteria has appeared prior to the current century, when the behavior of small particles at a liquid surface began to receive attention from varying sources. I will discuss my own contributions and those of contemporary authors, with special attention devoted to open questions suggesting investigation via numerical methods.

01 December, 2011, 16:00h s.t
INF 294, Hörsaal 134

Prof. Victor Panaretos
EPFL Lausanne

Given two samples of continuous random curves, we consider the problem of comparing their smoothness properties as these are encoded by their covariance structure. Our study is motivated by the problem of determining whether the mechanical properties of short strands of DNA are significantly affected by their base-pair sequence; while this is believed to be true, it has not been confirmed by 3D data. The corresponding functional testing problem is seen to involve aspects of ill-posed inverse problems and a test based on spectral truncation is proposed and investigated. More generally, we introduce the notion of a dispersion operator as a descriptor of second-order functional properties and consider the problem of comparing the dispersion operators of two functional populations. When applied to a dataset of DNA minicircles obtained through the electron microscope, our tests seem to suggest the existence of a sequence effect on DNA shape.

"Efficient Simulation of Multi-Physics and Multi-Domain Applications"

06 December 2011, 14:15h
INF 293, Raum 215

Prof. Christian Engwer
Universität Münster

We are facing an increasing complexity in the models of scientific computing. Multi-physics applications, highly non-linear processes and domains exhibiting a complex shape are only some examples of such complexity. These changes pose a big challenge to the development of scientific software. On the one hand the requirements on the software are growing, e.g. broader feature sets, demand for easy parallelism. On the other hand the turn over times are getting shorter, which requires shorter development times.

To handle these requirements, DUNE provides a flexible framework for grid based methods for the solution of PDEs. We present extensions of the DUNE framework to handle multi-physics and multi-domain applications. The modules allow flexible computations while still allowing an efficient, i.e. rapid, implementation of new simulations.

"State Estimation Using the Ensemble Kalman Filter: Application for Numerical Weather Prediction"

30 October 2009

Dr. Thomas M. Hamill
NOAA Earth System Research Lab
Boulder, Colorado, USA

The ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) is one of several methods for estimating the initial conditions for numerical weather predictions. Typically, initial conditions are estimated through a statistical adjustment of a prior forecast to newly available atmospheric measurements from satellites, weather balloons, and so on. To achieve the most accurate analysis, accurate error covariances are needed both for the prior forecast and for the observations. The novel aspect of the EnKF rleative to other "data assimilation" methods is that the error covariances for the forecast are computed from an ensemble of short-range weather forecasts. This provides a weather-dependent estimate of the forecast error covariances. The talk will review the basics of the Kalman filter; explain how the EnKF overcomes some of the limitations of the Kalman filter; explain the algorithmic enhancements to the standard EnKF that make it practical for numerical weather prediction; provide some real-world examples of the EnKF and the improvements that have been obtained relative to the current standard data assimilation techniques; and describe the areas where more research and development is needed.
