AM Seminar: On the Geometry of Optimal Mass Transport: where Probability, Control, and Physics meet

Tryphon T. Georgiou
Professor

Abstract We will highlight the relevance of Monge-Kantorovich Optimal Mass Transport (OMT) in modeling energy dissipation in stochastic models of thermodynamic ensembles, and focus on quantifying the power that can be drawn from thermodynamic engines operating between two heat baths of unequal...

AM Seminar: How temporally autocorrelated fluctuations alter ecological outcomes

Sebastian Schreiber
Professor

Abstract All species experience temporal fluctuations in environmental conditions such as temperature, precipitation, resource availability or mortality risk. These fluctuations often are positively or negatively autocorrelated e.g. wetter years tending to be followed by wetter years, or seasons... Read More
