‘You got to think outside the box’: How Chad Morris uses his math degree to give SMU an edge

SportsDay Originally Posted: October 4, 2017 UNIVERSITY PARK -- Chad Morris enters the Hall of Champions at Gerald J. Ford Stadium dressed in a navy plaid jacket, a pair of glasses in his hand. As he sits at the podium for his weekly news conference, he puts on the rectangular spectacles to read his notes off a college-ruled manila folder. If you didn't know better, you might think he was a Dedman College professor who lost his way on campus. The handwritten notes are full of stats and figures that Morris believes can tell the story of SMU's previous game and its upcoming opponent. "I've always been enamored by numbers and statistics," the Mustangs' head coach says. READ MORE

Department of Mathematics Announces New Scientific Computing Seminar Dates

Time & Location: Wed., Oct. 18, 2017 126 Clements Hall, 3:30-4:30p (Refreshments at 3:15) Speaker: Prof. Alexander Figotin, Math, UCI Host: W. Cai Title: Multi-transmission-line-beam interactive system ABSTRACT: TBA ——------------------------------— Time & Location: Thu., Oct. 26, 2017 126 Clements Hall, 4:00-5:00p (Refreshments at 3:45p) Speaker: Prof. George Yin, Wayne State University Host: W. Cai Title: Switching Diffusions and Applications ABSTRACT: Many problems in control and optimization require the treatment of systems in which continuous dynamics and discrete events coexist. This talk presents a survey on some of our recent work on such systems. In the setup, the discrete event is given by a random process with a finite state space, and the continuous component is the solution of a stochastic differential equation. Seemingly similar to diffusions, the processes have a [...]

Event: Nov. 6, Introduction to ManeFrame II

Event Date: November 6 Location: Fondren Library E110 Time:12:00 - 2:00 PM The Fall 2017 CSC workshop series provides a hands-on experience that guides researchers from the basics of using SMU’s HPC resources to specific topics in parallelization and debugging. Additionally, the topics will cover information useful for researchers to quickly begin to use the new compute capabilities provided by our new cluster ManeFrame II. New users are encouraged to take advantage of the introductory “Intro. to ManeFrame II” workshop that will be given once monthly during the semester.

Event: Sept. 20, Unraveling tumor heterogeneity using single-cell RNAseq data: biology in a high-dimension sparse matrix

Event Date: September 20, 2017 Location: 126 Clements Hall Time: 3:30-4:30 pm Abstract: The recent advance of single-cell RNAseq technology makes it possible to dissect heterogeneous tumor tissue samples and deconvolute the molecular signal into specific cell types. This technique generates high-dimensional gene expression profile data in a very sparse fashion. In a current study, by unsupervised clustering strategy and mapping the centroid of signal, we successfully identify multiple subpopulations of cell types and characterize their roles in tumor progression.
