Abstract: The area of inverse problems can be thought of as the Jeopardy! of mathematical research. Instead of trying to find solutions to complicated equations, the theory of inverse problems attempts to do the opposite: Given solutions to equations, what are the equations themselves? Just as many questions have the same answer, it is true that many different equations have the same solution, making inverse problems extremely challenging to solve. In this talk I’ll describe the inverse problem of sampling continuous signals, and how to guarantee a perfect reconstruction by preventing the occurrence of “alias” signals.
Advising week begins Monday, October 29! Students consistently report that the aspect of their Amherst experience that they most value are the relationships they build with the faculty. But how does one build these relationships? We will review some strategies for having productive conversations with your academic adviser and connect with other faculty members as well. Cookies and fresh fruit will be provided!
Professor David Gloman has partnered with Kurt Heidinger, director of the Biocitizen School, to create an art event that inspires the public to imagine the unique biocultural character of the Nonotuck biome (also known as the central Connecticut River Valley) by “re-presenting” the landscapes that Orra Hitchcock depicted in the mid 19th century. Professor Gloman has located the sites where they were painted and created his own painted landscape portraits of those sites. View Gloman and Hitchcock's illustrations together in Frost Library's Mezzanine Gallery from September 4 - October 29.
The opening reception will be on September 27 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. in the Center for Humanistic Inquiry (2nd Floor, Frost Library).
Come contribute to our collaborative mural! This project began with the idea of using art to heal from sexual violence. From there, it evolved into a collaborative mural between all the resource centers that puts focus on the theme of healing from any kind of trauma or any type of injustice. Feel free to come with an item you would like to glue on or supplies, or use our supplies. We will have paint, markers, paint pens, hot glue guns (for gluing on items) and collage supplies. By contributing to this mural, you are by no means obligated to explain your contribution, or share anything about your experience that is private.
