Fall 2015:

Sep 4: Diogo Pinheiro (Brooklyn College)
Optimal Control of Dynamical Systems with Multiple Sources of Uncertainty
Title:
I will discuss optimal control problems associated with dynamical systems containing different sources of randomness. I will focus on the derivation of generalized dynamic programming principles, as well as on the corresponding HamiltonJacobiBellman equations. Joint work with N. Azevedo (University of Lisbon, Portugal).

Sep 11: Rodrigo Trevino (NYU)
Quasicrystals, Ergodic Theory and Cohomology
I will talk about some recent results on deviation of ergodic averages for systems coming from aperiodic tilings and aperiodic point sets which are self affine (the Penrose tiling is an example of these). These rely on fun interactions between ergodic theory and some cohomology theories associated with aperiodic point sets. Time permiting I will discuss applications to problems of diffraction, counting problems, and futue directions. This is joint work with S. Schmieding (Maryland).
