CMSA Mathematical Physics Seminar: Networks and quantization

CMSA EVENTS

April 12, 2021      10:00 am
Speaker: Fei Yan - Rutgers University

I will describe two quantization scenarios. The first scenario involves the construction of a quantum trace map computing a link "invariant" (with possible wall-crossing behavior) for links L in a...

CMSA Quantum Matter in Mathematics and Physics: QCD without diagrams

CMSA EVENTS

April 15, 2021      10:30 am
Speaker: Michael Creutz - Brookhaven National Laboratory

QCD, the theory of the strong interactions, involves quarks interacting with non-Abelian gluon fields. This theory has many features that are difficult to impossible to see in conventional diagrammatic perturbation...

CMSA Math Science Literature Lecture Series

CMSA EVENTS

April 16, 2021      1:00 pm
Speaker: Yi Ma - University of California, Berkeley

TITLE: Deep Networks from First Principles ABSTRACT: In this talk, we offer an entirely “white box’’ interpretation of deep (convolution) networks from the perspective of data compression (and group invariance). In...

April 20, 2021      9:00 am
Speaker: Dan Freed - University of Texas at Austin

TITLE: The Atiyah-Singer Index Theorem ABSTRACT: The story of the index theorem ties together the Gang of Four— Atiyah, Bott, Hirzebruch, and Singer—and lies at the intersection of analysis, geometry, and...
