From Shannon’s Sampling to Optimal Stopping in Finance

The Whittaker-Shannon-Kotel′nikov sampling theorem and the Paley-Wiener theorem state that an entire function of exponential type (band-limited function) can be reconstructed exactly from its values at discrete sampling points through the cardinal series. For functions that are analytic in a horizontal strip, the [...]

IMSE small grants program

After a long hiatus, we are again soliciting proposals to the small grants (aware awards around $5K) program of the Initiative for Mathematical Sciences and Engineering (IMSE).

IMSE lunchtime seminar: October 8, at noon

Our seminar will be in CSL 141.

Recovery of single molecule folding landscapes from univariate time series Andrew L. Ferguson, Materials Science and Engineering, UIUC

The stable conformations and structural fluctuations of biomolecules and polymers are governed by the underlying molecular free energy surface (FES). We have previously developed nonlinear machine learning tools to synthesize [...]

IMSE lunchtime seminar: April 16, at noon

We meet in Grainger Library, room 329. Georgios Fellouris, Statistics, will be talking on Adaptive and Scalable Sequential Detection Rules.

Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss the  problem of  signal detection when observations are sequentially acquired from a “large” number of sources  and  the (unknown) subset of sources in which signal is present is “small”.  I will [...]

IMSE lunchtime seminar: September 25, at noon

Fall semester in full swing, we resume our lunchtime seminar series.

The first meeting of the seminar is, as usual, in Grainger Library, room 335.

We start the semester with talks by Bruce Reznick, Math, talking on Non-negative polynomials and sums of squares in theory and (theoretically) in practice, We will talk about real polynomials [...]
