The second meeting of the seminar is, as usual, in Grainger Library, room 335.
Steven Levinson, ECE, talks on A Geometric Interpretation and Proof of Baum’s Algorithm for Estimation of the Parameters of a Probabilistic Function of a Markov Process,A probabilistic function of a finite state Markov process is a stochastic process, , that generates [...]
SATANA (an IMSE affiliated seminar): Roger Brockett, October 7 , AH 345 Roger Brockett, Harvard Optimal Cyclic Processes and subRiemannian Geodesics
The basic mechanisms involved in wide variety of engineering and biological processes depend on properties of non integrable distributions define by collections of vector fields. It often happens that the most efficient trajectories define closed subriemannian geodesics. In this talk we will establish some of the [...]
This time we will have two speakers,
Hal Schenck, Math, and Tim Bretl, Aero/CSL
The conference room is on the first floor of CSL building, South Wing.
Next two seminars will take place on Nov. 7th and Nov. 28th, in Grainger Engineering Library.
We will meet in 170 Everitt Lab at noon. The lineup:
Iwan Duursma (Math), Olgica Milenkovic (ECE) and Luke Olson (CS).
