AM Seminar: Randomized Algorithms for Convex and Non-convex Optimization

Mert Pilanci
Assistant Professor

Abstract With the advent of massive data sets, machine learning and information processing techniques are expected to bring transformative capabilities to a variety of fields.  However, existing algorithms often prove ineffective when scaled to extremely large datasets, especially in ... Read More

Advancement: Robustness of an essentially nonlinear dynamo mechanism

Jacob B. Noone Wade
PhD Student (Advisor: Nic Brummell)

Abstract:  Through direct numerical simulations, we study the influence of turbulence on a novel essentially nonlinear dynamo (END) mechanism. This dynamo operates through the interaction of a velocity shear with magnetic buoyancy mitigated by secondary Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilities. As... Read More
