[Catch-All Mathematical Colloquium] The level-set mean curvature flow equation versus the total variation flow equation,Yoshikazu Giga (University of Tokyo )

2022年5月12日 (木) 16:00 18:00
Online via Zoom

Title: The level-set mean curvature flow equation versus the total variation flow equation

Abstract: The level-set mean curvature flow equation has been introduced to track an evolving hypersurface by its mean curvature after it develops singularities. A level-set of a solution of the level-set mean curvature flow equation moves its mean curvature. The total variation flow equation is often used to remove noise from images. Although these two equations look similar, analytic properties are quite different; the former equation is a local equation while the latter is a nonlocal equation. In this talk, we compare these two equations as well as a few applications.

Discussion Theme (for the 2nd part of the event) :

How to collaborate with researchers other than mathematicians

The colloquium will be held once a month online. Each event consists of a one-hour talk on mathematics followed by a one-hour diversity panel discussion session. Please register before May , 5 pm. Click here to register!

[Seminar] Sub-Gaussian heat kernel bounds and singularity of energy measures for symmetric diffusions,Professor Naotaka Kajino (Kyoto University)

2022年4月22日 (金) 10:00 11:00
Online via Zoom
Abstract:

This talk will present the result of a joint work with Mathav Murugan(University of British Columbia) that, for a symmetric diffusion on a complete locally compact separable metric space, two-sided sub-Gaussian heat kernel bounds imply the singularity of the energy measures with respect to the reference measure.

For self-similar (scale-invariant) diffusions on self-similar fractals, the singularity of the energy measures is known to hold in many cases by Kusuoka (1989, 1993), Ben-Bassat, Strichartz and Teplyaev (1999), Hino (2005), and Hino and Nakahara (2006), but these results heavily relied on the self-similarity of the space.

It was conjectured, and had remained open for the last two decades to prove, that the singularity of the energy measures should follow, without assuming the self-similarity, just from two-sided sub-Gaussian heat kernel bounds of the same form as those for diffusions on typical self-similar fractals. The main result of this talk answers this conjecture affirmatively.

The first half of the talk will be devoted to a brief introduction to self-similar diffusions (and their associated Dirichlet forms) on self-similar fractals and to sub-Gaussian heat kernel bounds for symmetric diffusions, so that the talk will (hopefully) be accessible even to those without prior knowledge about diffusions on fractals.

The 1st Workshop on Nobel Turing Challenge

The Nobel Turing Challenge is a grand challenge aiming at developing a highly autonomous AI and robotics system that can make major scientific discoveries, some which may be worthy of the Nobel Prize and even beyond. Accomplishing this challenge requires a development of a series of technologies and in-depth understanding on the process of scientific discoveries. From the system development perspective the challenge is to make a closed-loop system from knowledge acquisition and hypothesis generation and verification to full automation of experiments and data analytics.

This series of workshops aims to discuss a process of scientific discovery and how AI can make it happen highly autonomously to yield high impact discoveries. The first workshop will focus on sharing the current status of the field, and discuss what are possible high impact targets.

Title: Individual-based temporal beta-diversity: Individual turnover and compositional shift in a community

Timeline 15:00~15:30: seminar 15:30~16:00: questions and discussion 16:00~: mixer

Abstract: As increasing the necessity to assess the influences of global climate change and anthropogenic disturbances on biodiversity, the concept of beta-diversity has been extended to a temporal context and has been intensively studied in recent years. In studies of temporal beta-diversity, methodologies used in spatial beta-diversity have often been used simply. However, temporal beta-diversity often includes "the same individual" between two communities implicitly, which has not been the case with spatial communities, so it is necessary to consider the effects of individual turnover and persistence for quantifying temporal beta-diversity. I focused on both individual identity and the persistence of individuals within a temporal beta-diversity framework and developed some novel indices. In my presentation, I will explain the novel indices which I recently developed and the concepts behind them, showing examples of analysis. I would also like to discuss the prospects for community assemblages through both time and individual identity.

[Seminars] Macroscopic Quantum Machines

2022年4月7日 (木) 9:00 12:00
C700, Lab3

These seminars examine the science of how to bring macroscopic (large) systems into the quantum regime. The preparation of large Schrodinger cats is one of the long sought goals of quantum science. Researchers seek to do this for many reasons – to see if it can be done at all – does quantum mechanics still hold for large objects – is there new science that appears when objects become large/massive? Can macroscopic/large quantum systems be useful as precision sensors – and how can we preserve/protect the large scale quantum properties in such systems. These series of talks (experimental and theoretical), will show some facets/aspects of how some researchers are aiming towards the building of large Quantum Cats. Coffee and Okinawan Donuts are supplied during the morning.
