Math and Statistics Lecture Series:The Mathematics of Machine Learning

The Mathematics of Machine Learning by Luis Serrano

Machine learning is used for many exciting applications nowadays, including image recognition, voice and text processing, and even self driving cars. But what's behind all this? It's really just some simple mathematics, including linear algebra, calculus, and probability. In this talk, we'll go over the mathematics used in machine learning, with a special focus on neural networks, one of the most popular models out there.

Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Apportionment and Gerrymandering

Apportionment and Gerrymandering by Emille Lawrence, University of San Francisco

The United States Census Bureau will conduct its next census in the year 2020, but why is this decennial count so important? We will look at several different methods of apportionment that have been used over the years and some of the paradoxes that can arise therefrom. We will also discuss gerrymandering (the redrawing of district lines for ulterior motives) and some different measures for a district’s “compactness”.

Metacognition and the Problem-Solving Process. How do Mathematicians do Math? Abigail Higgins, Sacramento State University

Mathematicians are widely regarded as expert problem-solvers. But their ability to solve problems is not innate; it was honed over several years of practice. Together, we will consider different problem-solving practices employed by mathematicians, discuss strategic applications of these mathematical habits, and practice applying these strategies to new problems.

Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Some Applications of the Combinatorial Nullstellensatz and the Discharging Method

Some Applications of the Combinatorial Nullstellensatz and the Discharging Method by Sogol Jahanbekam, San Jose State University

The discharging method is a tool in a two-step approach to inductive proofs of some problems in graph theory. It is used to prove that a global hypothesis guarantees the existence of some desirable local configurations. The Combinatorial Nullstellensatz is an algebraic tool in combinatorics and number theory. In graph theory it is applied to prove the existence of certain configurations or labelings in graphs. In this talk we briefly talk about these two techniques. We then apply them in some graph coloring problems.

Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Re-presentation and Multiple Representations

Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Re-presentation and Multiple Representations

Re-presentation and Multiple Representations by Kevin Moore, University of Georgia

In this talk, using the function concept, I clarify potential issues with “using multiple representations” as typically framed. I describe how these issues can explain the mixed results typically found with using multiple representations. In doing so, I draw on my research group’s work to illustrate a productive approach to “using multiple representations” that relies less on the type or number of representations and more on the act of re-presenting covariational relationships.

I have been working with the SF 49ers for over 15 years now, and recognized a major problem with head injuries that were not really diagnosed, and certainly not treated. Players were having MTBI (mild traumatic brain injury) and were developing CTE (encephalopathy of the brain). In this talk, we will reveal advances and techniques in this area that could not have been done without mathematical analysis.

Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Identifying Car Acceptability Using C5.0 Decision Trees and Rules

Identifying Car Acceptability Using C5.0 Decision Trees and Rules by Ruby Suarez, Sonoma State University

The C5.0 decision tree algorithm and rule learners are two machine learning methods that also make complex decisions from sets of simple choices. Decision tree learners are powerful classifiers, which utilize a tree structure to model the relationship among the features and potential outcomes. Decision trees are built using a technique called recursive partitioning, also known as divide and conquer which splits the data into subsets which then split into even smaller subsets until the algorithm determines the data within the subsets are sufficiently homogenous.

Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Analysis Meets Arithmetic

Analysis Meets Arithmetic by Ken Jacobs, Northwestern University

One of the first things we learn about in arithmetic is that every real number can be written in decimal expansion. Years later, we learn in calculus that lots of functions can be written as Taylor series. These two topics, typically learned years apart, are strikingly similar, and the analogy between them motivated Kurt Hensel to introduce p-adic numbers. In this talk, we'll explore Hensel's construction and the beautiful mathematics that have since unfolded.

Math Mathemagical Tricks Jay Cummings, Sacramento State University

Most magic tricks amaze by the subtle use of small lies: a well-practiced sleight of the hand, or equipment with a deceptive property. Others, though, require no lies at all—they are self-working tricks, relying only on the magic and mystery that is inherent in mathematics. In this talk I will demonstrate several mathematical tricks for you, and will show you how (most) of them are done.

I will investigate the series solution used to solve this problem by fourteenth century Indian mathematicians and look into finding a recurrence relation to solve this problem. Extensions of this problem will also be examined.
