Stochastics Seminar - Arash Fahim
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Arash Fahim, Department of Mathematics, Florida State University

A Monte Carlo scheme for a singular control problem

We provide a numerical solution of the nonlinear parabolic double obstacle problem arising from a finite portfolio selection with proportional  transaction costs. The problem is mainly governed by a time-dependent Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation with gradient constraints due to the singularity of the control. We propose a numerical method which is composed of Monte Carlo simulation to take advantage of the high-dimensional properties and finite difference method to approximate the gradients of the value function. Numerical results illustrate behaviors of the optimal trading strategies and also satisfy all qualitative properties from theoretical results.

ECEE Tech Talk: Josh Caldwell of Linear Technology
12:15 PM - 1:45 PM

Seminar will be held in ECEE 1B32 

ABSTRACT: Some of the design issues in LED Drivers are common to many control schemes. Often times, analog bandwidths severely limit the usable frequency range - which is only made worse with the large energy storage elements in switching converters. Most of our monolithic switching regulators focus on waking-up out of low-current modes, switching for a time (burst-mode), and then going back to a low-current sleep mode. This event is typically asynchronous and can happen at any time without much issue to the system - only adding slight ripple to the output voltage. Absolute low-current efficiency is key in these products. LED drivers are much more difficult to design - where the "wake-up" event must be synchronous to a specific logic edge. Because of this, LED drivers are a bit like a dragster spinning its tires with the engine at maximum, waiting for the green-light.  The control-loop must be essentially in steady-state and perfectly "frozen" so that the LED ignition time is perfectly repeated during every pulse. These extreme dipole conditions of operation can be repeated at 10kHz - or on the order of days between LED on-times. Another requirement of modern products is to meet automotive EMI standards. For switching products, this poses special challenges in the 400kHz to 2MHz AM-band range, and the 400MHz to 1GHz communications bands. LTC-ADI has pioneered magnetic cancellation techniques to reduce the radiated noise sometime below measurable limits. To further reduce in-package heat, EMI, and at the same time allow for more integrated passive components, LTC-ADI has also borrowed packaging technology from Processors to create some of the world’s most integrated products.

SPEAKER BIO: Josh Caldwell has been with Linear Technology (now owned by Analog Devices) for over 10 years and is currently a Design Engineering Manager responsible for the definition, design, and development of monolithic Buck, Boost, and controller LED driver integrated circuits. As part of this position, Josh visits with customers across the world to define new products, discuss solutions, and review existing designs prior to manufacturing. Linear Technology became the industry leader in the development and manufacturing of highly reliable ICs and modules through the careful design of semiconductor processes, stress testing of packaging, and extensive long term lifetime testing. Josh was chosen in 2008 from a select group of Senior Design Engineers to serve as the Design Engineering representative for a new in-house high performance power-analog process. Using his experience with 6 different semiconductor processes, Josh chose devices, helped write design rules, and released the process to manufacturing in 2012. Prior to working at Linear Technology, Josh designed integrated circuits for the Power Products group at National Semiconductor for almost six years. He holds a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Colorado. In his spare time, he enjoys Tae Kwon Do with his two sons, bicycling, rebuilding a 1967 Firebird, and drawing.

During his time at Linear Technology, Josh pioneered ultra-fast LED dimming techniques that are used in DLP projectors, LIDAR systems, automotive headlamps, military HUD applications, and medical imaging.  End customers include Panasonic, Olympus, Toyota, John Deere, Audi, and many more.
 
Equity, Inclusion, and Cookies: Understanding Power and Privilege in Physics
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

When you look around the physics department, who do you see? Who’s over-represented, and who’s under-represented? Do power and privilege play a part? EIC is a monthly series of 90-minute guided discussion (over coffee and cookies) about issues related to equity and inclusion in physics, providing an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students to contribute to important conversations about our departmental community. To kick off the year, we will define and discuss power and privilege, which are the themes for this semester’s events and are fundamental concepts for understanding issues of equity and inclusion. All are welcome! DUAN G126
Complex/Dynamical Systems Seminar - Bob Easton
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Bob Easton, Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder

Going to Europa

The Europa Clipper mission to search for life on Europa, the icy moon of Jupiter, is in the planning stages. A small but essential part of the mission design process is figuring out how to get there. I’ve been collaborating with Rodney Anderson and Martin Lo of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for the past several years. I was surprised to learn that trajectory design problems have a low priority because the existing theory is assumed to be adequate.  I will attempt of show that the existing theory has room for improvement, and that many fascinating problems remain. These problems call for new applications of dynamical systems theory, new ideas, and improved computer software.

The existing technology is impressive. A full ephemeris model of the solar system together with accurate numerical computations will make accurate forecasts of where a spacecraft will go provided the initial conditions are known. However, mission designers want to find initial conditions that will lead to a desired destination. The trial and error search space is enormous, so a rough orbit is designed using a succession of two-body approximations. This is the method of patched conics. The rough orbit is shadowed by orbit segments of the full ephemeris model together with velocity adjustments needed to track the rough orbit. It works, but velocity changes are limited and very expensive. This is where more theory can help. Also, if mission design objectives change while a spacecraft is in flight, then better theory can lead to a faster design process to achieve the new objectives given the existing state of the spacecraft and the remaining supply of fuel.

Department Colloquium - Scotland Leman
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Scotland Leman, Department of Statistics, Virginia Tech

Extensions of the Multiset Sampler

In this talk I will primarily discuss the Multiset Sampler (MSS): a general ensemble based Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method for sampling from complicated stochastic models.  
 
Proposal distributions, which approximate complex structures, are essential for virtually all MCMC sampling methods. However, such proposal distributions can be difficult to construct so that their probability distribution match that of the true target distribution, in turn hampering the efficiency of the overall MCMC scheme. The MSS entails sampling from an augmented distribution that has more desirable mixing properties the original target model, while utilizing simple independent proposal distributions that are easily tuned. I will discuss applications of the MSS for sampling from tree based models (e.g. Bayesian CART; phylogenetic models), and for general model selection, model averaging and predictive sampling. Because of the mixed nature of the audience, I will begin by motivating MCMC algorithms, some of their many applications, and their design considerations.

Department of Geography Colloquium Series presents:
"Toward Geographical Imagination Systems (GIS)"
Presentation by 
Luke Bergmann, Assistant Professor, University of Washington, Department of Geography Refreshments at 3:15 PM; talk at 3:30 PM.

What if our GIS were Geographical Imagination Systems? How might we develop GIS that understand space as relational and that reflect knowledge as positioned and interpretive? What might a GIS more adequate to the theoretical commitments of the critical social sciences and theoretical humanities look like? Here, I will approach these questions not only theoretically and historically, but also practically. I present a prototype Geographical Imagination System titled 'Enfolding'--a web-based interface that encourages the interpretative construction, collision, and collaging of relational and absolute spaces to produce representations of torn and fragmented space, always in motion, interpenetrated by wormholes, and interwoven with dreams and hazy memories.

Estimating Chemical Observables in a Switch Diffusion Process
 
We investigate a switch-diffusion model for the spatial dynamics of membrane-targeting proteins on the surface of cells. In the first part of my talk, I will demonstrate an extension of a previously-applied Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method to a higher-dimensional model. In the second part of my talk, I will discuss preliminary results in characterizing the parameter regime for which the extended method can reliably estimate chemical observables.

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

The Russian Revolution: Barbara Engel in conversation with David Shneer

"The Russian revolution of 1917 was a watershed in world history, where the Bolsheviks party established the first Marxist state in the world. Strikes, protests and demonstrations, including food riots, mostly by women, helped spark the uprising that led to the downfall of the tsar in February and prepared the way for the triumph of the Bolsheviks the following fall. Barbara Engel and David Shneer speak in a riveting session about the events that preceded and followed the revolution as well as its legacy today.”

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

 “The Myth of Reactionary Masses and the Problem of Intellectual

Leadership in Russian Politics”

 

Monday, September 18, 3:00-5:00 PM

 

Location – UMC 247

 

Viatcheslav Morozov is Professor of EU-Russia Studies at the University of Tartu and Chairman of the Council of the UT Centre for EU-Russia Studies.

Before moving to Tartu in 2010, he taught for 13 years at his alma mater, the St. Petersburg State University, Russia, where he defended his PhD in world history in 1997. He has also studied at the University of Limerick, Ireland, from which he obtained his MA degree in European Integration in 1996.

Professor Morozov has published extensively on Russian national identity and foreign policy, and, more recently, also on Russian domestic affairs. He pioneered in introducing neo-Gramscian theory of hegemony to Russian identity studies, in particular in his book Russia and the Others: Identity and Boundaries of a Political Community (Moscow: NLO Books, 2009). His recent research focuses on how Russia’s political and social development has been conditioned by the country’s position in the international system. This approach has been laid out in his most recent monograph Russia’s Postcolonial Identity: A Subaltern Empire in a Eurocentric World (Palgrave, 2015), while the comparative dimension was explored in the edited volume Decentring the West: The Idea of Democracy and the Struggle for Hegemony (Ashgate, 2013).

Professor Morozov is a member of the Program on New Approaches to Research and Security in Eurasia (PONARS Eurasia), based at George Washington University. In 2007, he spent 6 months as Visiting Fulbright Lecturer at the Joseph Korbel School of International Studies, University of Denver. In 2007–2010, he was a member of the Executive Council of the Central and East European International Studies Association (CEEISA).

Event Image Fake Democracy, Digital Media: Reinventing our Democratic Future?
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Media once assumed to have important democratic responsibilities—as a public sphere, fourth estate, critical watchdog and check on power—are hyper-commercialized, starved of public funding, attacked and restructured—in fulfillment of neoliberal logic. 

This lecture asks some crucial questions: How might we challenge the impoverishment of democracies? How do the politics of emancipation form and materialize? And how can scholarship contribute to the reinvention of our democratic futures and search out what democracy could become? 

Natalie Fenton, who is on the Board of Directors of the campaign group Hacked Off and a founding member of the Media Reform Coalition, is a professor in Media and Communications in the Department of Media and Communication, Goldsmiths, University of London. Her latest book is Digital, Political, Radical (Routledge, 2016).

This spinup is desirable for clean comparison of the modeled solution to observations, such as nutrient distributions, and for initializing transient experiments, such as those done with coupled climate carbon models (e.g., simulating anthropogenic carbon uptake) or simulations of transient perturbations of tracers (e.g., bomb radiocarbon). Two aspects of the challenge are the long time scales of ocean ventilation and the short time scales of processes in the upper ocean. We present results here that demonstrate the successful application of a Newton-Krylov based solver to efficiently spin up tracers in online ocean tracer simulations.

How digital media democratized journalism and amplified a diversity of voices

Technology, the internet, social media and immediacy have forever changed how we consume and produce news, impacting the media industry in many ways. 

While in the past "traditional" journalism and legacy media set the tone and determined coverage based on what they thought was important and relevant, the rise of independent online and digital media has created new avenues of content where consumers can influence those very decisions. 


The internet has eliminated the barriers to entry for independent publishers, allowing for the creation of ethnic and niche online publications, blogs and freelance entrepreneurial journalism, which are still redefining journalism.
 
Access to real-time analytics of what consumers are streaming or reading online is also directly impacting news coverage.
 
How will digital journalism continue to evolve under the influence of technology and diversity of consumers, and what will it look like in the future?

Veronica Villafañe is an Emmy award-winning journalist, who has worked as an on-air reporter in Spanish and English-language television news. She has worked for Univision, Telemundo, CNN en Español and Los Angeles Fox and UPN stations before diving into a convergence model at the San Jose Mercury News.

She was President of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists from 2004 to 2006.  A lifetime member of the organization, she was on the board of NAHJ from 2000 to 2007.  She has also served on the board of RTNDA and was an Advisory Board Member of Newswatch.

She was most recently the West Coast Web Editor for impreMedia, the parent company of La Opinión newspaper, and was previously Managing Editor of Intersections South LA, a USC-funded community news website.  A columnist for Poder Hispanic magazine for many years, she is currently a freelance writer, editor and producer.

She founded Media Moves in June of 2007 to address the lack of news coverage about Hispanic media and Latinos working in the media.  The news site highlights moves and accomplishments of Latinos in the media and news about the industry.

Mini Law School 2017: Lifelong Learning Lecture Series for Non-Lawyers
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Have you ever wondered: How national monuments are designated and whether they can be undesignated? How a case gets to the Supreme Court and what they do with it once they get it? What power does an executive order have and how can it be reviewed? We will explore all of these topics and more in this fall's Mini Law School: Hot Topics. 

Mini Law School provides participants with a better understanding of important legal principles in key areas of the law. Taught by members of the CU Boulder law school faculty, the seven-week series provides a look into some of the hottest legal topics of our time. Open to all, this program is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity and is a great chance to get a mini taste of what law school is like. For fall 2017, we are excited to roll out a brand new Mini Law School curriculum, presenting topics that have not been offered previously. Each member of the Mini Law School Faculty will discuss “hot topics” in a different area of the law. The selected subjects cover some of the most pressing issue in the law today. Each week, a different topic is presented.

We will hold seven sessions on Tuesday evenings, Sept. 12 through Oct. 24. Colorado Law’s Mini Law School also will be livestreamed from Boulder to CU South Denver in Parker, Colorado, on the same dates and times. For those who neither Boulder nor Parker is convenient, we also have livestream and recorded viewing options. Participants selecting those options will receive the class materials and a link to the lecture weekly and can watch at their own pace and at the location of their choosing.

Event Image Department of Art & Art History's Visiting Artist Program: Millie Chen
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

"by any means necessary" - a lecture by Millie Chen

What is the capacity of aesthetics to convey conflict and trauma? This question drives my practice. Although this sounds like a cerebral question about the hazards of vision, it comes from visceral distress produced by endless stream of human injustices and atrocities. I utilize the subversive capacity of image-making along with non-visual elements like sound, scent and participatory modes of working to interrupt habits of viewing. It is the question that underlies my commitment to a practice that is as much social as it is artistic.

This lecture is part of the Visiting Artist Program, a vital component of the Department of Art and Art History since 1972 which is one of the oldest programs of its kind. Each year, a diverse group of 8-10 nationally and internationally recognized artists are invited to CU to present their work and ideas to a large audience of students, faculty, and community members.

Event Image Mimbres at the Museum: Earl, Hugo, Anna and Me
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The 11th century Mimbres culture of New Mexico is famous for its ceramic art: black-and-white images of animals and people painted on simple earthenware pots.  In 1925, the CU Museum acquired a large collection of Mimbres pottery when Junius Henderson (the first Director of the Museum) asked archaeologist Earl Morris to excavate Mimbres sites.  Anna Shepard was a ceramic analyst who worked with Earl Morris.  She was fascinated by the formal symmetries of Mimbres art, and the Museum has her papers and laboratory notes.  Hugo Rodeck (who followed Henderson as Director) was smitten with Mimbres art.  In the 1960s he assembled an incredible archive of Mimbres images – now part of the CU Museum's holdings.  Steve Lekson (Curator of Archaeology) has done extensive fieldwork in the Mimbres region.  In the CU Museum's collections, he discovered many strange and wonderful Mimbres things.  This talk tells the stories of Mimbres at the Museum – along with insights and ideas about the ancient Mimbres people and their pottery.

Steve Lekson (Ph.D. University of New Mexico) is Curator of Archaeology and Professor of Anthropology at the Museum of Natural History, University of Colorado, Boulder. He held research, curatorial, and administrative positions with University of Tennessee, Eastern New Mexico University, National Park Service, Arizona State Museum, Museum of New Mexico, and Crow Canyon Archaeological Center. Lekson directed more than 20 archaeological projects throughout the Southwest. Recent projects include excavations at Pinnacle Ruin in central New Mexico (2000-2008), excavations at Chimney Rock in southern Colorado (2009), and excavations at Black Mountain and Woodrow ruins in southwestern New Mexico (2010-13). He is currently Contributing Editor for Archaeology magazine.

It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $210 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $210! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

Reproducibility has become an important and sometimes heated topic of debate in a number of disciplines, including psychology, biomedical research, and economics, just to name a few. Several recent large-scale attempts to replicate published findings have produced potentially troubling results, and the proliferation of computational methods across many fields of research also raises new questions about how best to ensure reproducibility.

As part of its inaugural "Year of Data" series of events, the Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship (colorado.edu/crdds) is hosting a panel discussion on "Overcoming Barriers to Reproducible Research," 3 p.m. - 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, September 20, in Norlin Library, Room N410.
 
A panel of experts will draw from a wide range of roles, experiences, and disciplinary perspectives to discuss significant barriers to reproducibility as well as possible solutions that could enable researchers to overcome these challenges. Panelists will include:
 
Tobin Magle, Cyberinfrastructure Facilitator, Colorado State University
Laura Michaelson, PhD Candidate, Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder
Eric Vance, Associate Professor, Applied Mathematics and Director, Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis, University of Colorado Boulder
 
Please join us for a fun and engaging discussion! This event is being held in conjunction with a hands-on workshop on "Increasing Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research." See here for more information about that event: https://goo.gl/YJvVng. For questions about either event, please contact CRDDS@colorado.edu.

Title: "ColdQuanta Incorporated: The History and Future of a University Spinoff Company*"

Presented by: Dana Anderson, JILA and University of Colorado, Boulder

Abstract: ColdQuanta Inc. was founded in 2007 by three physicists and a businessman, myself, Theodor Hänsch, Jakob Reichel and Rainer Kunz. Its mission is to develop and commercialize cold and ultracold matter technology that can enable the scientific and applications communities. Much of ColdQuanta’s early technology emerged from a MURI grant from the Army Research Office and more so, a large DARPA grant to develop technology for guided Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) applications. Out of that effort came compact components for producing ultracold matter and in particular a sophisticated “atom chip” technology that made it possible to considerably reduce the size of BEC machines and similar systems. A BEC machine that in the past took many months to build, occupied a large optical table and needed racks of electronic instrumentation can now be purchased from ColdQuanta, occupies a single rack, and can be up and running in six hours. Since 2007 ColdQuanta has produced instruments for making cold atoms in undergraduate labs, and has enabled numerous applications and scientific experiments from optical lattices to quantum computing to the JPL/NASA mission to put cold atoms on the International Space Station. This talk tells the story of how ColdQuanta was formed and highlights the role of students and spin-off companies in the University’s mission to provide an educated workforce, to promote scientific advancement, and to maintain this nation’s technological leadership. It also covers some relevant “this is reality” topics such as starting a tech business, money, and conflicts of interest. Regarding the latter:

*I hereby disclose that I have a financial interest in ColdQuanta, Inc. (!)

AAPG-SEG Talk: Mirko van der Baan
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Talk by Mirko van der Baan (SEG Honorary Lecturer):
How widespread is human-induced seismicity in the United States and Canada?

There has been significant public and scientific interest in the observation of changed seismicity rates in North America since 2008, possibly due to human activities. We find that the seismicity rate in Oklahoma between 2008 and 2016 is strongly correlated to increased hydrocarbon production. The possibility of systematic correlations between increased hydrocarbon production and seismicity rates is a pertinent question since the United States became the world’s largest hydrocarbon producer in 2013, surpassing both Saudi Arabia’s oil production and Russia’s dry gas production. In most areas, increased production is due to systematic hydraulic fracturing which involves high-pressure, underground fluid injection. Increased hydrocarbon production also leads to increased salt-water production which is often disposed of underground. Increased underground fluid injection in general may cause increased seismicity rates due to facilitated slip on pre-existing faults.

Contrary to Oklahoma, analysis of oil and gas production versus seismicity rates in six other states in the United States and three provinces in Canada finds no state- or province-wide correlation between increased seismicity and hydrocarbon production, despite 8- to 16-fold increases in production in some states. However, in various areas, seismicity rates have increased locally. A comparison with seismic hazard maps shows that human-induced seismicity is less likely in areas that have historically felt fewer earthquakes. The opposite is not necessarily true.

CompSci Colloquium: Aaron Clauset (CU Boulder)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

The Large-Scale Structure of Networks: Probabilistic Models, Rich Data and Mathematical Limits

ABSTRACT:
The architecture of many complex systems can be represented using networks, as a set of nodes and their pairwise interactions. For instance, a genome tells us what molecules an organism can make and social systems are composed of people, but in both cases, it's the interactions among components that shape system dynamics. One aim of network science is to develop rigorous tools that can extract scientific insights about complex systems by analyzing and modeling large and often messy network data sets. Probabilistic generative models, which combine ideas from statistics, machine learning, and statistical physics, are a powerful approach for achieving that aim.

In this talk, I'll survey advances by my research group on two aspects of probabilistic generative models for networks: 1) developing new algorithms that combine connectivity and auxiliary information to make better inferences and predictions, and 2) characterizing the mathematical limits of these algorithms. In the first area, I'll describe how models can exploit information about edge weights, node attributes, or time-varying interactions in ways that are scientifically useful and interpretable. In the second, I'll show how fundamental limits to inferring hidden structure in networks can be overcome when auxiliary information is available. I'll also describe our recent discovery of a "No Free Lunch" theorem for networks, which eliminates the dream of a network-learning algorithm that works best across all settings. These results demonstrate the enormous practical and theoretical potential of probabilistic models for measuring and understanding the architectures of complex systems.

Event Image Puzzled and Perplexed by Populism? An Evening of Expert Guidance
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

For anyone trying to figure out the temper (literally!) of our times, the term “populism” is omnipresent, seeming to adopt a different meaning at every appearance. 
The Center of the American West presents the influential and accomplished American historian, Michael Kazin, a professor of history at Georgetown University, and the author of The Populist Persuasion:  An American History (originally published in 1995), an exploration of the changing meanings and practices of populism through the course of American history. “Populism,” Professor Kazin has written, “has an unruly past,” and that quality of unruliness has taken hold as a major feature of our times. “At best,” he reminds us, “populism provides a language that can strengthen democracy, not imperil it.” In a conversation with Center of the American West Faculty Director Patty Limerick, Professor Kazin will share his distinctive understanding of populism in the past and present, providing the audience with steady and insightful interpretations to deploy as they navigate through disorienting times.

This event is FREE and open to the public
Event Image Farewell to Cassini
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Cassini-Huygens mission, a joint collaboration between NASA, ESA, and the Italian Space Agency, has been in orbit at Saturn since 2004, and is now in the Grand Finale phase of its tour. Throughout its journey, instruments on Cassini have discovered and studied Enceladus’ surprising plume activity and have investigated the mysterious Earth-like world of Titan, the bizarre variety of other Saturnian moons, the ever-changing magnificent ring system, as well as the remarkable planet itself. As it plunges into Saturn's atmosphere on September 15, 2017, Cassini will send back its final bits of unique data. In this presentation, mission science highlights and science results from Cassini's final orbits will be discussed.

Think! Talk: Why We Are Irrational About Politics
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Why doesn't everyone agree with you about politics? The best explanation is that they are being irrational—and not, for example, that political issues are especially difficult or that we lack sufficient information to resolve them. CU Boulder Professor of Philosophy Michael Huemer will discuss why people are especially irrational about this particular subject, and how and why they adopt the beliefs they want to adopt. The bad news: You're probably being irrational, too.

It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

    Instructor:  Nick Featherstone, Research Computing
    Sponsored by: 
            Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship (CRDDS) and Research Computing 

            This pair of short courses will provide an overview of Python fundamentals, split into two sessions, each meeting one hour for four weeks.  It is targeted at participants with prior experience programming in another language, but who wish to get up and running with Python.  Topics covered will include variables & objects, functions, conditionals, and loops. We will also discuss how to build custom Python modules and provide an overview of popular 3rd-party packages such as Numpy.  This course will combine lectures with interactive exercises.  It is available free of charge.  Participants must have the following knowledge to be able to participate:  be familiar with fundamental aspects of programming (loop structure, variables, basic data structures), and a laptop.

NOTE:  This course will not cover “how to program” – we that expect you have prior experience in another programming language, and that you want to transition to using Python.

Registration closes September 13 or once full.  Due to anticipated demand, we ask that if you register for a short course you make a commitment to attend all sessions in the course.

Due to the brevity of these sessions, we will not be able to address issues related to a faulty Python installation in-class.  Attendees are expected to arrive with a functional installation of Python 3.x and the following packages installed on their laptop:  Numpy, Matplotlib, h5py, netCDF4, and Pandas.   Installation instructions will be emailed in advance of the course.  Those requiring assistance during the installation process should either attend the September 14 prep session or make a separate appointment with Nick Featherstone (feathern@colorado.edu).

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $210 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $210! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

The Inclusive Classroom - Considering How Classroom Structure Can Promote Equity
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Considering How Classroom Structure Can Promote Equity

Lisa Corwin, Assistant Professor, EBIO

Students enter into the classroom with different backgrounds, resources, and social capital at their disposal. This unequal distribution of resources can create inequities in the classroom that we, as instructors, may not be aware of. In this workshop we will explore what occurs when inequities exist in a learning environment and discuss how incorporating more classroom structure can alleviate some of these inequities. Workshop will be held in ATLAS 301.

Over-coming fluid-structure instabilities for incompressible flows and light bodies
 
The added-mass instability has, for decades, plagued partitioned fluid-structure interaction (FSI) simulations of incompressible flows coupled to light solids and structures. Many current approaches require tens or hundreds of expensive sub-iterations per time-step. In this talk some new stable partitioned algorithms are described for coupling incompressible flows with (1) compressible elastic bulk solids, (2) thin structural beams and (3) rigid bodies. These added-mass partitioned (AMP) schemes require no sub-iterations, can be made fully second- or higher-order accurate, and remain stable even in the presence of strong added-mass effects. These schemes are implemented using moving and deforming overlapping grids with the Overture framework.

Bill Henshaw is the Margaret A. Darrin Distinguished Professor in Applied Mathematics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology. He has previously worked at the IBM T.J.

Department of Geography Colloquium Series Presents:
"Place-making, Landscape and Materialities: Whales and Social Practices in Ulsan, Korea" Presentation by Bradley Tatar, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea
Co-sponsored by the Center for Asian Studies (CAS)
Refreshments at 3:15 PM; talk at 3:30 PM.


In the southeastern coastal city of Ulsan in Korea, people continue to defy the global taboo on eating whale meat, which they believe is an important social practice for local identity. The Nam-gu District in the City of Ulsan has created the Special Zone for Whale Culture as a spatial territory in which many divergent social practices related to whales are carried out. In this tourist zone, how are the elements of Ulsan whale culture invented, and how are they attached to a specific place? Using the concept of landscape, I argue that place-making practices are carried out to produce different kinds of whales as material realities. I analyze three of the many kinds of whales that are produced: the natural history whale, the whale as meat, and the whale as object of conservation. I conclude by arguing that these materialized whales are not separate, but relational entities which contribute to local identity through their enactment in the landscape.

Sensitivity and Bifurcation Analysis for a Differential-Algebraic Equation Model of a Microbial Electrolysis Cell

Microbial electrolysis cells (MECs) are a promising new technology for producing hydrogen cheaply, efficiently, and sustainably. The technology is based on microbial fuel cells in which bacteria oxidize organic substrates to generate current, decreasing electricity costs. MECs are more efficient than fermentation methods and can be fed fermentation effluent or cheap and readily available wastewater. However, to scale up this technology, we need a better understanding of the processes in the devices. In this effort, we have conducted a sensitivity analysis for a differential-algebraic equation (DAE) model of a batch-fed microbial electrolysis cell with an algebraic constraint on current.  This includes both differential sensitivity analysis and principal component analysis.  We hope to identify the stability of equilibrium points and study bifurcations, but this will have to be done numerically until solutions to the transcendental constraint are available.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

A boundary value problem for the damped Sine-Gordon and Landau-Lifshitz equations: an application to symmetry-broken hydrodynamic states in ferromagnetic thin films

Ferromagnetic materials can be modeled within the microscopic, continuum approximation by the Landau-Lifshitz equation (LLE), a nonlinear, dispersive, and weakly dissipative partial differential equation (PDE). The typical vectorial form of the LLE is comprised of a set of three coupled PDEs that describe the dynamics of a three-component magnetization vector maintaining the unit length constraint everywhere. An alternative representation of the LLE is achieved by utilizing canonical Hamiltonian variables that result in a system of weakly dissipative dispersive hydrodynamic equations. This formulation allows one to interpret magnetization dynamics as a fluid-like medium parametrized by a density and a velocity exhibiting dispersive effects. A fundamental problem that has garnered recent attention is that of a ferromagnetic channel subject to a non-zero input flow velocity at one end. For axially symmetric, planar ferromagnets, the solution in the long-wave, low frequency asymptotic regime has been shown to have constant density and a spatially linear decaying velocity profile that is independent of time. However, realistic magnetic materials break axial symmetry. Under appropriate asymptotic scaling, the symmetry-broken dispersive hydrodynamic equations reduce to a damped sine-Gordon equation in the low input-flow regime. Solutions to this equation are found analytically and numerically. These solutions show that ferromagnetic channels exhibit properties reminiscent of a damped nonlinear pendulum. In particular, the input flow must overcome a critical value (an energy barrier) to induce a steady flow in analogy to a pendulum forced enough to sustain rotation about its pivot. This provides a concise description of a physical mechanism in a solid-state material analytically achieved by a dispersive hydrodynamic representation.

Have you ever wondered: How national monuments are designated and whether they can be undesignated? How a case gets to the Supreme Court and what they do with it once they get it? What power does an executive order have and how can it be reviewed? We will explore all of these topics and more in this fall's Mini Law School: Hot Topics. 

Mini Law School provides participants with a better understanding of important legal principles in key areas of the law. Taught by members of the CU Boulder law school faculty, the seven-week series provides a look into some of the hottest legal topics of our time. Open to all, this program is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity and is a great chance to get a mini taste of what law school is like. For fall 2017, we are excited to roll out a brand new Mini Law School curriculum, presenting topics that have not been offered previously. Each member of the Mini Law School Faculty will discuss “hot topics” in a different area of the law. The selected subjects cover some of the most pressing issue in the law today. Each week, a different topic is presented.

We will hold seven sessions on Tuesday evenings, Sept. 12 through Oct. 24. Colorado Law’s Mini Law School also will be livestreamed from Boulder to CU South Denver in Parker, Colorado, on the same dates and times. For those who neither Boulder nor Parker is convenient, we also have livestream and recorded viewing options. Participants selecting those options will receive the class materials and a link to the lecture weekly and can watch at their own pace and at the location of their choosing.

Colloquium: Greg Retallack
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Talk by Greg Retallack (University of Oregon):
Astropedology and the origin of life


Scheduling contact: Emily Fairfax

Abstract: Astropedology is the study of very ancient paleosols and meteorites relevant to the origin of life and different planetary soil systems. In deep time, paleosols reveal Ediacaran and Paleoproterozoic life on land, and the timing and extent of the Great Oxidation Event of 2.4 Ga. There is also evidence for life in paleosols back to 3.5 Ga on Earth, and circumstantial evidence of life in paleosols dating to 3.7 Ga on Mars. These are the oldest known intact profiles, but pieces of paleosols some 4.56 Ga in age may be represented by carbonaceous chondrite meteorites. Complex chemical assembly, metal catalysis of organic compounds, and the course of hydrolytic reactions as a kind of planetary metabolism make soils an attractive theoretical site for the origin of life. Because dilute solutions tend to an equilibrium that undoes organosynthetic reactions, life is more likely to have arisen on a soil planet like Mars than a water planet like Earth.
Physics Colloquium: Presented by Kyle Leach, Colorado School of Mines
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Title: "The Quest for the New Standard Model: Searching for BSM Physics with Rare-Isotope Beams"

Presented by: Kyle Leach, Colorado School of Mines

Abstract: The development of the Standard Model (SM) has been one of the crowning achievements in modern physics, and is the cornerstone of current subatomic studies. Despite its success, the SM is known to be incomplete, and providing limits on possible physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) is crucial to our understanding of the natural universe. Although they are generally complex, atomic nuclei can be exploited as a laboratory for these studies through the use of rare-isotope beams (RIBs). The production of these short-lived, very exotic isotopes has opened new avenues of research in our search for BSM physics in the era of the LHC. This work is at the precision and sensitivity frontiers, and helps to bridge the gap between atomic, nuclear, and particle physics using novel, state-of-the-art detection techniques. In this talk, I will use these topics to highlight the significant role of the atomic nucleus in our ongoing search for additional generations of quarks, new descriptions of the weak interaction, and light dark matter. These studies play a critical role in providing the groundwork for our quest to develop the "New Standard Model".

We live in a success-obsessed world. Many of us prioritize or feel burdened by our careers at the expense of family, relationships, health, and spirituality. We fail to understand that success cannot be compartmentalized. When one area of our life suffers, all the other areas will follow suit sooner or later. If you want to be successful in life, and not spend all your time and energy working, you need to strive for balance. The good news is that you can design a harmonious life with 7 daily habits.

Optimizing Mixing in Laminar Flows: Aref’s Blinking Vortex Flow

Mixing of a passive scalar in a fluid flow results from a two part process in which large gradients are first created
by advection and then smoothed by diffusion. We will discuss methods of designing efficient stirrers to optimize
the mixing of a passive scalar in a two-dimensional nonautonomous, incompressible flow over a finite time interval. The flow is modeled by
a sequence of area-preserving maps whose parameters change in time, defining a mixing protocol. As examples,
we study a model on the torus that composes two shears—the Harper map—and a version of Aref’s blinking
vortex flow where the stirrers are modeled as point vortices. The position and strength of the shears or vortices represent parameters to be selected
to optimize the stirring efficiency. Stirring efficiency is measured by a version of a ``mix-norm”, a negative
Sobolev seminorm; its decrease implies creation of fine-scale structure. A Perron-Frobenius operator is used to
numerically advect the scalar. Various strategies for obtaining near-optimal protocols are compared with those
obtained by random optimization methods.

This is joint work with Rebecca Mitchell (APPM PhD, 2017).

Combating Internet Latency in the Age of Fog and Cloud Computing

ABSTRACT: Pushing computation, control and storage into the "cloud" has been a key trend in networking in the past decade. The cloud is now "descending" to the network edge and often diffused among the client and edge devices. The cloud is becoming the "fog". Fog computing aims at moving some of processing or cloud capability closer to the user by leveraging near-by edge or client devices along the cloud-to-thing continuum. The primary driver for this new architecture lie in reducing Internet latency. 

In this talk, I will provide an overview of my group's research and then present my recent research on fog computing that tackles internet latency. ELEMENT is a user-level end-to-end TCP latency measurement framework that decomposes the overall application latency into system and network latencies. It also provides a new user-level latency-aware TCP socket primitives through which TCP applications can effectively control their latencies.  

BIO: Sangtae Ha is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder with a joint appointment in the Interdisciplinary Telecommunications Program.

Event Image 29th Annual Athearn Lecture Series Welcomes UCLA's Dr. Kelly Lytle Hernandez - "City of Inmates..."
5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

29th Athearn Lecture

Kelly Lytle Hernandez

Associate Professor of History, UCLA

CITY OF INMATES:
Conquest, Rebellion, & the Rise of Human Caging in Los Angeles

Thursday, September 28, 2017, 5:00 PM
Benson Earth Sciences Building, Room 180

Kelly Lytle Hernandez is an associate professor in the UCLA Department of History. She is one of the nation’s leading historians of race, policing, immigration, and incarceration in the United States. Her award-winning book, MIGRA! A History of the U.S. Border Patrol (University of California Press, 2010), explored the making and meaning of the U.S. Border Patrol in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, arguing that the century-long surge of U.S. immigration law enforcement in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands is a story of race in America. Her forthcoming book, City of Inmates: Conquest and the Rise of Human Caging in Los Angeles (University of North Carolina Press, 2017), is an unsettling tale that spans two centuries to unearth the long rise of incarceration as a social institution bent toward disappearing targeted populations from land, life, and society in the United States. It does so with six extraordinary stories detailing when, why, and how the dynamics of conquest made Los Angeles, California, the carceral capitol of the world. By the 1950s, she argues, incarceration was a complex and well-oiled machine of elimination targeting blacks, Natives, and Latinos. In the years ahead, the rise of mass incarceration amounted to mass elimination.

Event Image Above and Beyond: Alone. So Far...
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

If we know one thing about the universe, is that it's big. It's enormous. The pure vastness of our cosmos continues to captivate us. Among the multitudes of galaxies and stars, countless worlds exist - many of which, we believe, could harbor alien life. And yet, our searching has thus far found no trace of distant life-forms. Why is this? Is there anybody out there? In this talk we'll discuss this question famously dubbed the "Fermi Paradox." Tristan Weber will help us explore some of the possible explanations for why the stars seem so empty. If our search continues to turn up empty, what might that mean for our place in the universe?
Event Image CSTPR 15th Anniversary: Keynote Address by Brian Deese, Former Obama Senior Advisor
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join CIRES Center for Science and Technology Policy Research for their 15th anniversary public event featuring a keynote address by Brian Deese, senior fellow at Harvard Kennedy School and former Obama administration senior advisor. Bringing perspectives gained in the White House inner circle and the center of major legislative and budget negotiations, Deese provides an insider’s outlook on subjects ranging from the future of healthcare and the economy to the future of our planet.

From restructuring the American auto industry to securing the Paris climate agreement, economic and clean energy expert Brian Deese was the president’s point person on some of the most historic undertakings of the Obama administration. During eight years that ran the gamut from financial crisis to momentous achievements in healthcare, environmental protection and bipartisan budget legislation, Deese rose to the position of senior advisor, counseling the president and shaping policy on conservation, energy, financial regulation, job creation and the economic impact of healthcare reform. A key driver of U.S. global leadership on climate change, Deese was responsible for engagement with China, India and other major economies and for implementing the Obama energy agenda at home and abroad. He acted as principal negotiator of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 and oversaw the Supreme Court nomination process of Judge Merrick Garland.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

    Sponsored by: 
            Center for Research Data and Digital Scholarship (CRDDS) and Research Computing 

            This pair of short courses will provide an overview of Python fundamentals, split into two sessions, each meeting one hour for four weeks.  It is targeted at participants with prior experience programming in another language, but who wish to get up and running with Python.  Topics covered will include variables & objects, functions, conditionals, and loops. We will also discuss how to build custom Python modules and provide an overview of popular 3rd-party packages such as Numpy.  This course will combine lectures with interactive exercises.  It is available free of charge.  Participants must have the following knowledge to be able to participate:  be familiar with fundamental aspects of programming (loop structure, variables, basic data structures), and a laptop.

NOTE:  This course will not cover “how to program” – we that expect you have prior experience in another programming language, and that you want to transition to using Python.

Registration closes September 13 or once full.  Due to anticipated demand, we ask that if you register for a short course you make a commitment to attend all sessions in the course.

Due to the brevity of these sessions, we will not be able to address issues related to a faulty Python installation in-class.  Attendees are expected to arrive with a functional installation of Python 3.x and the following packages installed on their laptop:  Numpy, Matplotlib, h5py, netCDF4, and Pandas.   Installation instructions will be emailed in advance of the course.  Those requiring assistance during the installation process should either attend the September 14 prep session or make a separate appointment with Nick Featherstone (feathern@colorado.edu).

Tentative agenda:

September 14:  Prep session (optional)

Short Course Part 1 (Programming Basics):

Event Image Robert Linn Memorial Award Lecture: From Research to the Classroom (and Back)
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Professor Jonathan Templin has been selected for the inaugural Robert L. Linn Memorial Lecture Award, a new award named in honor of "Bob" Linn who was an inspirational leader in the field of measurement and policy and professor at the University of Colorado Boulder and the University of California, Los Angeles for more than 40 years. The award was created by Linn’s wife, Joyce Linn, to honor early or mid-career scholars who exemplify insightful and interdisciplinary contributions to educational measurement and policy. The lecture will be held alternately at CU Boulder and UCLA.

Templin is associate professor of research, evaluation, measurement, and statistics and educational psychology at the University of Kansas. His research focuses on the development of psychometric and general quantitative methods, as applied in the psychological, educational, and social sciences. His lecture titled, "From Research to the Classroom (and Back): Bettering Assessment Practice and Policy," will review newer psychometric methods, both in theory and how they are currently used in practice, and set a vision for what could be possible when the full benefits of both policy and psychometrics are realized.
