Topology design for complex dynamical networks http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220417458?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220417458?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Apr 1

Abstract

Controllability and observability have long been recognized as fundamental structural properties of dynamical systems, but have recently seen renewed interest in the context of large, complex dynamical networks. A basic topology design problem is sensor and actuator placement: choose a subset from a finite set of possible placements to optimize some real-valued controllability and observability metrics of the network. Surprisingly little is known about the structure of such combinatorial optimization problems. In this talk, I will show that several important classes of metrics based on the controllability and observability Gramians have a strong structural property that allows for either efficient global optimization or an approximation guarantee by using a simple greedy heuristic for their maximization. In particular, the mapping from possible placements to several scalar functions of the associated Gramian is either a modular or submodular set function. The results are illustrated on problems of sensor and actuator placement in power grids. I will also show how another network topology design problem involving the addition of edges to a network to optimize effective resistance has strikingly similar mathematical structure. These problems are illustrated on a power network wide area control problem for damping inter-area oscillations.

Rethinking The Functional Boundaries of Integrated Radio-Frequency Systems Enables New Wireless Communication Paradigms by Dr. Harish Krishnaswamy (Columbia U) http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220417324?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220417324?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Apr 1
(12 p.m. - 1 p.m.)

ABSTRACT:

Mobile data traffic in 2014 was nearly 30 times the size of the entire global Internet in 2000. Next generation wireless networks are targeting 1000x increase in capacity to meet the insatiable demand for more data. Such a tremendous increase in wireless data will require a complete rethinking of today’s wireless communication systems and networks from the physical layer to the network and application layer.

My research program at Columbia University is focused on

  1. transformative radio-frequency (RF) and millimeter-wave (mmWave) circuit design techniques
  2. that enable new system architectures that challenge the traditional functional boundaries (antenna/RF/analog/digital) of wireless communication systems and specifically enable advanced signal processing techniques at RF,
  3. thus enabling new wireless communication paradigms in close collaboration with communications, signal processing and network theorists.

 

In this talk, I will focus on recent research in CoSMIC lab in this space. I will touch upon our work on energy-efficient and high-power millimeter-wave CMOS circuits that have drawn interest for next-generation 5G cellular communications. The bulk of this talk will focus on our work on enabling full-duplex wireless communication, where transmitters and receivers operate at the same frequency at the same time, thus potentially doubling data throughput, promoting more flexible spectrum usage, and enabling solutions to several network problems. The fundamental challenge in full duplex is the tremendous transmitter self-interference at the receiver, which can be one trillion times more powerful than the desired signal and must be dealt with in all domains. This powerful self-interference is susceptible to uncertainties of the wireless channel (for instance, frequency selectivity and time variance) and the imperfections of the transceiver electronics (nonlinear distortion and phase noise to name a few), making it even harder to deal with. I will discuss several generations of fully-integrated CMOS transceiver ICs with self-interference cancellation that leverage circuit design innovations to enable advanced yet robust signal processing such as noise cancellation, distortion cancellation and wireless channel equalization in the RF and electromagnetic (i.e. antenna) domains and achieve the challenging performance required. I will also briefly touch upon our collaborative work with network theorists to determine the rate gains that are possible under various full duplex scenarios based on realistic physical layer models that we developed. Finally, I will end this talk with a brief description of our ongoing and future work on other emerging wireless communication paradigms.

Is the Humanities the Next Big Thing? http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220417222?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220417222?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Apr 1
(2 p.m.)

Dr. Deborah Fitzgerald, the Kenan Sahin Dean of the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences at MIT, will deliver a lecture titled “Is the Humanities the Next Big Thing?” on Wednesday, April 1 at 2:00 p.m.

Fitzgerald, an award-winning historian of agriculture and food in modern America, attracted widespread national attention last year for her editorial titled “At MIT, the Humanities Are Just as Important as STEM” (Boston Globe, April 30, 2014).

Deborah Fitzgerald is Kenan Sahin Dean of the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (SHASS), and Professor of the History of Technology in the Program in Science, Technology, and Society (STS) at MIT. She received her B.A. from Iowa State University (History and English, 1978) and her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania (History and Sociology of Science, 1985). Prior to joining the MIT faculty in 1988, she was an Assistant Professor in the Department of the History of Science at Harvard University.

Fitzgerald's research focuses on agriculture in 20th century America. She is interested in the role of federal, private, and corporate institutions supporting agriculture, in the character of rural life vis-a-vis growing modernization efforts; in the emergence of scientific, technological, and economic ways of knowing and changing the agricultural world; in the interface between nature and landscape, on the one hand, and agriculture on the other; in the reciprocal influence of American and non-American agricultural practices and ideas; and in the role of commodity overproduction in the emergence of the modern food industry.

She is the author of The Business of Breeding: Hybrid Corn in Illinois, 1890-1920(Cornell, 1990), and Every Farm a Factory: The Industrial Ideal in American Agriculture (Yale University Press, 2003), which won the 2003 Theodore Saloutos Prize for best book of the year from the Agricultural History Society, of which Fitzgerald is a past president.

Fitzgerald is also the co-sponsor, with Professor Harriet Ritvo, of the MITSeminar in Environmental and Agricultural History (formerly the Modern Times/Rural Places Seminar).

Physics Colloquium: Effective Potentials and Morphological Transitions for Binary Black-Hole Spin Precession http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416988?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416988?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Apr 1
(4 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.)

Dr. Michael Kesden (UT Dallas)

     Generic binary black holes have spins that are misaligned with their orbital angular momentum.  I will derive an effective potential for binary black-hole spin precession with which I can solve the orbit-averaged spin-precession equations analytically for arbitrary mass ratios and spins.  These solutions are quasiperiodic functions of time: after a precessional period the spins return to their initial relative orientations.  They classify black-hole spin precession into three distinct morphologies between which the black holes can transition during their inspiral.  They also can be used to derive a precession-averaged evolution equation that can be numerically integrated on the radiation-reaction time, allowing black-hole spins to be tracked statistically from formation to merger.  This new equation can be used to predict the signatures of black-hole formation in the gravitational waves emitted near merger and the distributions of final spins and gravitational recoils.

Opening Reception: Friday, Feb 13, 8 - 10 pm  

A visual arts roast of the artists duo Brian Jones and Brian Scott

“The Brians” as they are collectively known by the Dallas arts community have been living, loving and working together for the past 25 years.  Though they each make art works of their own, when they work collaboratively, they use the moniker “Chuck & George”.  As Chuck & George, Brian Jones and Brian Scott are alternately the protagonists and antagonists in a campy universe of their own creation.  The artists present themselves as sexy and grotesque caricatures sharing real and fabricated misadventures.  Chuck & George are a quirky and unflattering version of the Romantic Comedy.

Individually and separately, Brian Jones and Brian Scott are incredible artists.  They live, breathe and sleep art/music/film and exude a joy de vivre.  And they have legendary Halloween parties.  Their home is a funky nest that they’ve assembled from all things wonderful and wacky, mixing naughty tchotchkes with fine art within the hand-painted walls and furniture.

Recognizing the universally adored “Brians” as enormous and unique talents, curator and Director of CentralTrak Heyd Fontenot had the idea of assembling their friends for an homage exhibition.  Nearly a hundred artists were given the task of immortalizing Chuck & George.  And most have answered the call.  So, this Spring CentralTrak will host the group exhibition “Who’s Afraid of Chuck & George?” (Title borrowed from the Edward Albee play, about another alternative marriage)

 

ABOUT CENTRALTRAK

CentralTrak, The University of Texas at Dallas Artists Residency, established in 2008, is dedicated to the creation, presentation, and advancement of the contemporary arts.  As a live/work space for eight artists, it serves as a community center in the North Texas area for broad intellectual discourse around the arts.  While the residency promotes artistic experimentation through its support of production, the companion gallery encourages critical engagement in a local urban context through exhibitions and related programs. By building on the forward-thinking academic resources of the School of Arts & Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas, CentralTrak unites artists from an expansive range of creative disciplines to extend and challenge contemporary notions of artistic practice, creative expression, and the role technology plays in these processes.

 

CentralTrak is supported in part by the generosity of numerous donors and partners from the North Texas area and The University of Texas at Dallas.

SUDARIUM by Reinhold Engberding http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416857?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416857?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Saturday, Mar 7 - Saturday, Apr 4 Location: CentralTrak.

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 7, 8 - 10 pm  

CentralTrak is pleased to present “SUDARIUM” by Reinhold Engberding.  A past CentralTrak resident, Engberding's installation is the continuation of a series of image "interviews" with the same title, which he started in 2006. Sudarium is the Latin expression for a special textile relic, one that has been used to wipe sweat, or in an intimate fashion.

These 144 drawings are painted with ink on used bed sheets.  Each unique ink drawing was sourced from the Internet; including porn websites, news sources with reports about the revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as, semi-official U.S. law enforcement websites. The images utilized from these sources are mug shots of men, all viewed with the same question from the sonless Engberding: Is that my son?  

A project of self-discovery, the artist's feelings transform these static web images into self-portrait transformations as Engberding contemplates the father-son-relationship.  As the artist reflects, “bed sheet(s) take (on) tears, sweat and other body fluids and in this respect it’s predestined for this series of portraits."  These images float on the walls looking down on the observer.  Suddenly the observer becomes the observed.

Bio

Reinhold Engberding is a German artist. He studied landscape architecture and fine arts in Kassel, Kiel and The Hague, and has lived and worked in Hamburg since 1982.  Awarded multiple national and international grants to fund his practice, he has been working abroad in Thailand, Switzerland, Norway, the Netherlands and consistently in the U.S., partially connected with a lectureship. He has had several solo and duo shows and has taken part in group shows in Germany and abroad.

Engberding is primarily a sculptor, an object maker, and is concerned with installation works.  Although drawing and painting have not been his chosen medium for quite some time now he is concerned with images of young men, whom he questions whether they could possibly be his sons. Is that my son? is the overarching title of all these series so far. His work involves the topics of identity and intimacy, privacy, longing and desire.

The Comer Collection in the School of Arts and Humanities at UT-Dallas was initiated in 2004 through the gracious donation of Marilyn and Jerry Comer.  This wide-ranging archive, comprised of over 300 photographs and hundreds of books and journals serves as a resource for graduate students pursuing research in the area of photographic practice and contemporary art.  Documentation of exhibitions organized from the collection is available at http://www.utdallas.edu/ah/comer.

Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science presents

2015 Spring II Clubs - 03/21 - 05/10/2015  (8 sessions)

Are you worried that whole day workshops/camps cover too much content and your children may be overwhelmed? You prefer us to cover the content over several weeks? Do you think it is better to assimilate and build expertise bit slowly? Are you worried that your child may forget the programming skills (s)he learned in Summer? We got you covered with Programming Clubs! Each club runs for 9 weeks and meets in the weekends at UT Dallas campus.

 

In each session, we typically teach actively or work through hands-on examples during the first hour, let the participants work through another example with instructor’s help during the second hour, and the students can do the homework problem during the third hour or leave early and complete it at home. New concepts will be introduced in every session.

 

Visit utd.edu/k12/directions for directions to reach ECSS building in UT Dallas campus.

Ok, but what if you live far away  & cannot visit the campus every weekend? No worries! We have a solution for you even if you live in the other side of the world -  Programming eClubs! With weekly video lectures & assignments, eClubs are as good as on-campus clubs. Our eClubs are rigorous and the participants should plan to spend several hours every week to complete the weekly assignments. Participants can also discuss the weekly material/assignments with fellow students within online discussion forums, but it is optional & discussions will not count towards grade. These online courses will be run through coursesites.com, a state-of-the-art Learning Management System environment provided by Blackboard Inc. Web based tutoring using Google Hangout or Webex is included in the registration fee. Deep-discounted fee is available to participants from other countries who may not be be able to afford regular price. With economy pricing, tutoring support will be provided only by email. If a school or college wants to enroll lots of students in these eClubs, email csk12@utdallas.edu to get volume discounts.

Registration site:  bit.ly/utdclub

Questions? Email csk12@utdallas.edu

 

Registration fee is $150 for club/eclub. Except for level 1 clubs, all others will need to complete weekly assignment & submit them online. You can do the homework during the last hour of the class & complete it with our help. Since most clubs have corresponding eClubs, you can catch up with the video lecture if you cannot attend a particular session. Cancellation policy: You will get the pro-rated fee for unused sessions as refund, additional $10 transaction fee applies. Email your cancellation request to csk12@utdallas.edu.
