New DCII on Machine Learning lead by Math Faculty

SMU Interdisciplinary Institute Cluster on Machine Learning and Control Theory Event Date: April 19 Time: 3:30pm Organizers: Minh-Binh Tran, Alejandro Aceves, Chul Moon Brief Description: Multilayer neural networks have been shown to be the most powerful models in machine learning. However, the fundamental reasons for this success remains not well understood and for that it will require mathematical tools and expertise. One of the most important mathematical tools that can be used to study neural networks is Control/Mean Field theory that deals with the behavior of dynamical systems with inputs, and how their behavior is modified by feedback. By this cluster, we would like to create a forum for faculties and researchers at regional universities and companies working on this important topic. READ MORE

In Memoriam: Richard Haberman

Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), Dynamical Systems Acivity Group electronic magazine Originally Posted: Feb. 7, 2019 Richard Haberman, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics, Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences, 1978-2015 We are very sad to have to report that Richard Haberman passed away on December 31, 2018. Richard (Rich) was born in Brooklyn, NY, in 1945, and grew up on Long Island. He received his BS (1967) and PhD (1971) at MIT. After a postdoc at UC San Diego and stints at Rutgers and The Ohio State, Rich spent the bulk of his career at Southern Methodist University (SMU). During his time as a graduate student, he met Mark Ablowitz, both of whom had the same advisor David Benney. Rich and Mark established a strong friendship that lasted [...]

Event: November 14, Math Colloquium: Difference-of-convex Learning: optimization with nonconvex sparsity functions.

Event Date: November 14 Location: 126 Clements Hall Time: 3:30 PM Miju Ahn Department of Engineering Management, Information, and Systems (EMIS), Lyle School of Engineering, SMU Sparse learning involves building a robust and efficient model by incorporating sprasity functions in the optimization formulation to select significant variables to serve in the model. The first part of this talk emphasizes on a bi-criteria Lagrangian formulation. In the second part, we introduce a new system of constraints called affine sparsity constraints (ASCs) defined by a discrete sparsity function.
