IAS/PU-Montreal-Paris-Tel-Aviv Symplectic Geometry Zoominar

Infinite staircases and reflexive polygons
Tara Holm, Ana Rita Pires
9:15am | Remote Access - see Zoom link below
A classic result, due to McDuff and Schlenk, asserts that the function that encodes when a four-dimensional symplectic ellipsoid can be embedded into a four-dimensional ball has a...

Seminar on Theoretical Machine Learning

Machine learning-based design (of proteins, small molecules and beyond)
Jennifer Listgarten
12:30pm | Remote Access Only - see link below
Data-driven design is making headway into a number of application areas, including protein, small-molecule, and materials engineering. The design goal is to construct an object with desired...

Mathematical Conversations

Weyl laws and dense periodic orbits
Michael Hutchings
5:30pm | Remote Access Only
We review a "Weyl law" in embedded contact homology, relating periods of orbits of the Reeb vector field on a contact three-manifold to volume. (This was also mentioned in the talk by Dan...

Seminar on Theoretical Machine Learning

Role of Interaction in Competitive Optimization
Anima Anandkumar
3:00pm | Remote Access Only - see link below
Competitive optimization is needed for many ML problems such as training GANs, robust reinforcement learning, and adversarial learning. Standard approaches to competitive optimization involve each...

Seminar on Theoretical Machine Learning

Graph Nets: The Next Generation
Max Welling
12:30pm | Remote Access Only - see link below
In this talk I will introduce our next generation of graph neural networks. GNNs have the property that they are invariant to permutations of the nodes in the graph and to rotations of the graph...
