We will describe an etale version of Bloch groups and regulators which for the case of number fields that take values in quotients of units of their rings of integers. Joint work with Frank Calegari and Stavros Garoufalidis

Rafel de la LlaveGeorgia Tech
The goal of this group is to read carefully the book "Introduction to Chaos in non-equilibrium stat. Mechanics". There will be several speakers. AThe first lecture will be a quick introduction to thermodynamics and statistical mechanics for mathematicians. We hope to explain the physical basis of the problems to mathematicians who have no background in physics and also cover some of the mathematical subtleties that are often overlooked in physiscs courses.

Kaye Husbands Fealing, Chair and ProfessorSchool of Public Policy, Georgia Tech
At a recent leadership training workshop, where chairs, deans and provosts engaged in "Vegas Rules" discussions about how to develop talent in staff and ourselves, I was asked the question-What was the thing that I enjoyed most during my childhood? Of course I responded: Solving math problems fast! But how does that relate to my research on pricing strategies in the automotive industry, technological aspirations in the developing-country context, earnings and employment differentials by race/ethnicity and gender in various market sectors, and return on investment in food safety research? The answers to this question will be the focus of this talk. The key takeaways will be that pathways meander, enjoy scientific explorations, and the quickest pathway to the crown of one's career is not necessarily the most fulfilling.

The Georgia Scientific Computing Symposium (GSCS) is a forum for professors, postdocs, graduate students and other researchers in Georgia to meet in an informal setting, to exchange ideas, and to highlight local scientific computing research. The symposium has been held every year since 2009 and is open to the entire research community. This year, the symposium will be held at Emory University. The format of the day-long symposium is a set of invited presentations, poster sessions and a poster blitz, and plenty of time to network with other attendees. Invited speakers include: Michele Benzi, Mathematics and Computer Science, Emory University; Steven Hamilton, Radiation Transport Group, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Alexandra Smirnova, Mathematics and Statistics, Georgia State University; Phanish Suryanarayana, School of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology; Molei Tao, Mathematics, Georgia Institute of Technology; Qing Zhang, Mathematics, University of Georgia. Poster sessions will be held during the lunch and afternoon breaks.

Convergence of gradient flows and scaling limit for particle systems

Time
Wednesday, February 17, 2016 - 13:05 for 1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
Location
Skiles 006
Speaker
Max FathiDepartment of Mathematics, UC Berkeley
In this talk, I will explain how the gradient flow structure of reversible Markov chains (that was discovered by Maas and Mielke independently in 2011) and the Sandier-Serfaty approach to convergence of gradient flows can be combined to study scaling limits for interacting particle systems on lattices. The exposition will be focused on the case of the simple exclusion process on the discrete torus. Joint work with Marielle Simon (INRIA Lille).
