Mathematics & Biomedicine

Thursday, January 30, 2020, 5:30pm
Newman Alumni Center, First Floor

Registration is required.

Dr. Mina Teicher's Abstract: Mathematics is everywhere! In manmade systems and in God made systems. In this talk Dr. Teicher will demonstrate appearance of mathematical forms and logic in nature (humans, plants, stones,...). Moreover, she will describe practical application of math to medicine and to the understanding of the human brain.

Dr. Gabriela Olmedo's Abstract: Why would researchers from biology, physics and mathematics join to study invisible microorganisms? Bacteria organize typically in complex communities that are not only essential for all the biogeochemical cycles on Earth and our health. They also hold clues to the story of life. Two crucial questions in biology are: How can thousands of species coexist in communities and what the rules are for their organization.

D-modules and Toric Schobers

Tuesday, January 21, 2020, 5:00pm
Ungar Room 528B

Abstract: I will present a translation of the classical mirror symmetry point of view into the more recent language of schobers. A conjecture on a categorical interpretation of the quantum toric D-module naturally appearing in mirror symmetry will be discussed.
