Applied and Computational Math Seminar -- Stochastic Computing and Optimization
Stochastic Computing and Optimization
    - ACM/Fin Math students,
Time: 3:05PM Room: LOV 0231
Abstract/Desc: Students from ACM and Financial Math will present their research progress. Some invited speakers may also present their research.

Biomathematics Seminar
Coupled dynamics of behaviour and disease
    - Martyna Smart, FSU
Time: 3:05 Room: LOV 232
Abstract/Desc: The spread of disease is significantly impacted by human behaviour. In particular, homophily ("bird of a feather flock together") and outgroup aversion can affect disease transmission rates and the uptake of non-pharmaceutical interventions (i.e. careful behaviours such as masking and social distancing). This talk will present a simple model of coupled behavioural change and infection in a structured population characterised by homophily and outgroup aversion.

Biomathematics Journals Seminar
A Mathematical Model of Stroma-Supported Allometric Tumor Growth
    - Greg Owanga, FSU
Time: 5:00 Room: Dirac library

Undergraduate Math Seminar
An example of group theory in mathematics: How symmetries in the zometool construction toy determine which pieces can fit together in a loop.
    - Mark van Hoeij, FSU
Time: 3:05pm Room: LOV 107
Abstract/Desc: The talk will start with explaining what a symmetry group is in mathematics. The symmetry group of a cube contains rotations of 90 degrees (and multiples of 90). These angles are common in typical constructions. However, the symmetry group of the icosahedron contains rotations of other angles (multiples of 120, and multiples of 72 degrees). I will show in the talk how this symmetry group leads to a fascinating construction toy called zometool. Group theory will be key to obtaining a theorem that describes exactly when zometool pieces fit together in constructions.

Financial Math Seminar
Hedging the Divergence Loss of the Constant Product Market Maker in Decentralized Finance
    - Zachary Feinstein, Stevens Institute of Technology
Time: 3:05pm Room: Zoom
Abstract/Desc: Automated Market Makers (AMMs) are a decentralized approach for creating financial markets by allowing investors to invest in liquidity pools of assets against which traders can transact. Liquidity providers are compensated for making the market with fees on transactions. The collected fees, along with the final value of the pooled portfolio, act as a derivative of the underlying assets with price given by the pooled assets. Following this notion, we study the hedging portfolio for the divergence loss, also called the impermanent loss, of the liquidity providers.

Solving Third Order Linear Difference Equations in Terms of Second Order Equations
    - Heba Bou KaedBey, FSU
Time: 3:05 pm Room: LOV 107
More Information
Abstract/Desc: Classifying order 3 linear difference operators over C(x) that are solvable in terms of lower order difference operators. In this talk, I will focus on one of the cases of this classification and give the algorithm we developed. I will give an example from OEIS (The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences) where our algorithm produces an output that proves a conjecture from Z.-W. Sun.
