“Three-dimensional Structure Determination of Molecules without Crystallization”


April 8, 2014 - 4:00pm

In cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), a microscope generates a top view of a sample of randomly-oriented copies of a molecule. The cryo-EM...

On the Singular Value Decomposition of the Truncated Laplace Transform


April 15, 2014 - 4:00pm

The Laplace transform is a widely used integral operator. The spectral properties of the Laplace transform tend to complicate its numerical...

Speaker: Roy Lederman, Yale University
April 22, 2014 - 4:00pm

Iteration of Mandelbrot cascades


April 22, 2014 - 4:00pm

The Mandelbrot cascade constructed from a random variable W of expectation 1, when non degenerate, provides a new variable Y of expectation 1. The...

Speaker: Jacques Peyriere, Université Paris-Sud (France)

Data Analysis of Questionnaires


April 28, 2014 - 4:00pm

Among the many important data analysis problems is the problem of matrices of high-dimensional data which has significant and possible non-linear...

Speaker: Jerrod Ankenman, Yale University
April 29, 2014 - 4:00pm

Eigenvector Localization on Data-Dependent Graphs


April 29, 2014 - 4:00pm

We aim to understand and characterize embeddings from the Laplacian Eigenmaps algorithm in the case of small, anomalous clusters.  To do this, we...
