No Resting Place: Holocaust Poland. New book reflects unique and transformative human rights learning experience

SMU News Originally Posted: October 17, 2017 DALLAS (SMU) – Bearing witness to Poland’s deep physical and emotional scars that linger long after World War II – when the Nazis made the country the epicenter of the Holocaust – is the focus of a new book by SMU’s Embrey Human Rights Program: No Resting Place: Holocaust Poland (Terrace Partners, $39.95). The large-format hardcover combines more than 200 contemporary photos of occupied Poland’s deadliest Holocaust sites with historical vignettes and poignant observations from those who have experienced one of the most comprehensive, longest-running Shoah study trips offered by a U.S. university. Preview the book here. Each December, the two-week “Holocaust Poland” trip – led for more than 20 years by SMU Prof. Rick Halperin – exposes [...]

The Department of Statistical Science announces Bill Schucany Visiting Scholar Series

The Department of Statistical Science at SMU is pleased to announce that Dr. Robert M. Bell will be our second Bill Schucany Visiting Scholar. Robert Bell received his Ph.D. in Statistics from Stanford University. He spent about twenty years at RAND doing public policy analysis before moving on to the Statistics Research Department at AT&T Labs-Research. A few years ago he left Bell Labs for Google, from which he retired last spring. In 2009, he was a member of the team that won the $1 million Netflix Prize for building the most accurate algorithm for predicting Netflix customer movie ratings. He has served on the Fellows Committee of the American Statistical Association, the board of the National Institute of Statistical Sciences, the Committee on National [...]

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 [...]
