Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar I

Stability and Learning in Strategic Games
Éva Tardos
11:00am|Simonyi 101 and Remote Access

Over the last two decades we have developed good understanding how to quantify the impact of strategic user behavior on outcomes in many games (including traffic routing and online auctions) and showed that the resulting bounds extend to repeated...

Symplectic Geometry Seminar

Hofer-Wysocki-Zehnder's Conjecture on Two or Infinitely Many Orbits
Daniel Cristofaro-Gardiner
12:30pm|Simonyi 101 and Remote Access

In their 2001 paper, Hofer, Wysocki and Zehnder conjectured that every autonomous Hamiltonian flow has either two or infinitely many simple periodic orbits on any compact star-shaped energy level; in the same paper, the authors prove this assuming in...

Marston Morse Lectures

Minimal Surfaces and the Isoperimetric Inequality
Simon Brendle
2:00pm|Simonyi 101 and Remote Access

The isoperimetric inequality has a long history in the geometry. In this lecture, we will discuss how the isoperimetric inequality can be generalized to submanifolds in Euclidean space. As a special case, we obtain a sharp isoperimetric inequality...

Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar II

Computing Greatest Common Divisors of Polynomials in Parallel
10:30am|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access

Given two univariate polynomials, how does one compute their greatest common divisor (GCD)? This problem can be solved in polynomial time using the Euclidean algorithm, and even in quasi-linear time using a fast variant of the Euclidean algorithm...
