SUMMARY:Gabriele Incorvaia and Daniel Han - Informal Applied Mathematics
Seminar

DESCRIPTION:The Informal Applied Mathematics seminar will continue with a
double bill from Gabriele Incorvaia and Daniel Han. Talks will take pla
ce in Frank Adams 2 (next to the Alan Turing Building's kitchen)\, with
complimentary hot drinks and biscuits from 2.45pm on the atrium bridge.
Title and abstracts for the talks can be found below.\n\n\nGabriele Inco
rvaia: Tracking targets from indirect through-the-wall radar observation
s\n\nAbstract: In this talk we address the practically important task of
identifying and localizing moving objects (e.g. people) inside a buildi
ng from through-the-wall radar data. We combine modern regularization te
chniques for solving non-linear inverse scattering problems with a Kalma
n filter approach based on indirectly obtained observations. For a given
proof-of-concept setup\, this scheme is promising for accurately tracki
ng moving targets in almost real time.\n\n\nDaniel Han: Ultra-slow aggre
gation due to space dependent fractional exponents\n\nAbstract: Nature i
s full of patterns and these are usually generated by a physical\, often
random\, process causing a non-uniform distribution of material. Yet\,
the patterns that we see are very robust\, e.g. cheetah or giraffe spots
. To find new mechanisms which can generate these patterns\, we delve in
to fractional diffusion equations. We find the asymptotic representation
of the solution of the variable-order fractional diffusion equation\, w
hich remains unsolved since it was proposed in [Checkin A. V. et. al.\,
J. Phys. A\, 2005]. We identify a new advection term that causes ultra-s
low spatial aggregation of subdiffusive particles due to dominance over
the standard advection and diffusion terms\, in the long-time limit. Thi
s uncovers the anomalous mechanism by which non-uniform distributions ca
n occur. We perform experiments on intracellular lysosomal distributions
and Monte Carlo simulations and find good agreement between the asympto
tic solution\, particle histograms and experiments.\n\n\nFYI: The Inform
al Applied Seminar is a weekly seminar for all applied mathematics stude
nts in the department. We get together on a Friday afternoon for student
s to speak about what they're working on at the moment. It's not formal
- lecturers and staff don't attend - so it can be a good place to get fe
edback on your talk before an upcoming conference or just good to practi
se for public speaking in general. We generally meet on the bridge (outs
ide the Alan Turing building first-floor kitchen) 15mins before the star
t and head to Sandbar for a drink afterwards.
