The development of adequate modeling tools for the dynamical evolution of market prices and interest rates is of strategic importance for the financial industry and is at the core of the interests of much academic research. These models are, for example, the first building blocks in the construction of pricing and hedging tools and of ... Read more about "School and Workshop on Dynamical Models in Finance"

The I-mode is an improved confinement regime of tokamak plasmas where an edge transport barrier is observed in the energy channel but not in the particle transport [1]. This is in contrast to H-mode confinement, which is characterized by transport barriers in both energy and particles. Consequently, in I-mode the impurity confinement time is low, ...

This talk presents, Project PHI (Pervasive Hierarchical Intelligence) a holistic effort to provide a comprehensive solution for making immersive machine intelligence a reality. Our guiding principle is to retain as much generality and automation while delivering large performance and efficiency gains through specialization and acceleration for a wide range of learning and intelligence workloads. As ... Read more about "Project PHI: System Design for Pervasive Hierarchal Intelligence"

By Andreas Pavlogiannis Abstract Static analysis is a standard approach for program verification and optimization. The talk will introduce some new techniques for data-flow and quantitative analysis, and is structured in two parts. In the first part, I will present the Quantitative Interprocedural Analysis (QIA) framework. I will illustrate how several quantitative problems related to ...

BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: Mutations in non-coding DNA are increasingly found to be associated with human disease, yet we currently lack robust methods for predicting transcription factor (TF) binding from sequence, especially at lower affinities. We developed a versatile maximum likelihood framework named No Read Left Behind (NRLB) that fits a biophysical model of protein-DNA recognition ...

Abstract: A growing area of interest in ecological research lies in the effects of changes in climate on biological communities and the effects of changes in biological communities on weather and climate. Climate conditions often are measured by ecologists as time series either with meteorological measurements recorded at weather stations or with environmental sensors at ...

mRNA translation and protein synthesis at synapses are tightly coupled to synaptic activity, and play an essential role in the long lasting forms of synaptic plasticity. A key molecule regulating dendritic mRNA translation is the calcium/Calmodulin dependent elongation factor-2 kinase (eEF2K), which is activated in response to glutamatergic neurotransmission. During this presentation, I will describe ...

Physics is an experimental science where theories should be confronted with experimental results. This validation process requires the development of plasma diagnostics to show that a new model faithfully represent physics reality, including quantitative assessments of discrepancies between theoretical and experimental results. From this perspective the direct experimental characterization of zonal flows, quantifying their role ...

Résumé : Les conjectures de Manin et Peyre décrivent la répartition des points rationnels de hauteur bornée sur une variété de Fano en terme d'invariants géométriques de cette variété. S'inspirant de travaux récents de La Bretèche et de Blomer, Brüdern et Salberger, on s'intéressera au cours de cet exposé aux conjectures de Manin et de ...

Modern servers in data centres have become increasingly heterogeneous, e.g. combining multi-core CPUs with many-core GPUs. This has implications on the design of future data-intensive systems for stream processing or machine learning: first, systems must exploit all the available parallelism of the hardware, independently of the processing semantics; and, second, instead of offloading computation entirely ...
