NS&M Colloquium: Organizing a Billion Images of Our World

September 27 @ 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm

Webcams, satellites and cell phones capture an incredible view of our world. When organized, these images provide an amazing lens for scientific and social discovery. This talk will explore what it takes to organize and index these image: how to automatically discover where in the world a camera is, what direction it is looking at and what kinds of things it sees. Learn how we can use these images to validate satellite estimates of environmental change, to characterize how people…

NS&M Colloquium: NMR Spectroscopy and Computational Molecular Dynamics Modeling

October 4 @ 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm

With Dr. James Kirkpatrick (Michigan State University) The earth is a dynamic and extraordinarily complex chemical processor. In much of the its outer 10’s of kilometers (the crust) most chemical reactions take place at the interface between minerals and a fluid filling the pores between mineral grains. These pore fluids are most commonly aqueous solutions but also include petroleum, natural gas and supercritical CO 2 -rich fluids. Understanding the reactions among these various components is challenging because of the complex…

NS&M Colloquium: Using Mathematics to Fight Cancer

November 8 @ 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm

With Dr. Ami Radunskaya (Pomona College) What can mathematics tell us about the treatment of cancer?  
Cancer is a myriad of individual diseases, with the common feature that an individual's own cells have become malignant. Thus, the treatment of cancer poses great challenges, since an attack must be mounted against cells that are nearly identical to normal cells. Mathematical models that describe tumor growth in tissue, the immune response, and the administration of different therapies can suggest treatment strategies that optimize…
