Mathematics Colloquium by Tomoki Ohsawa http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220391631?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220391631?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Thursday, Apr 24
(2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.)

Tomoki Ohsawa

Department of Mathematics & Statistics, University of Michigan–Dearborn

The Geometry and Dynamics of Semiclassical Wave Packets

I will talk about the geometry and dynamics of semiclassical wave packets, which provide a description of the transition regime between quantum and classical mechanics.

It is well known that both classical and quantum mechanical systems are described as Hamiltonian systems: finite-dimensional one for the former and infinite-dimensional for the latter, with respect to the corresponding symplectic geometric structures.

I will show how to exploit such geometric structures to formulate semiclassical dynamics from the Hamiltonian/symplectic point of view.

I will also talk about the role of symmetry and conservation laws in semiclassical dynamics as well as the relationship between the semiclassical wave packets and the Hermite basis.

Sponsored by the Department of Mathematical Sciences

Refreshments will be served in the First Floor Atrium of FO 30 minutes prior to the talk

Distinguished Speaker on Energy Series - Karthik Vasanth: LOW POWER DESIGN INNOVATIONS FOR MEDICAL ELECTRONICS: AN EVOLVING CHALLENGE http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220385551?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220385551?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Thursday, Apr 24
(2 p.m. - 4 p.m.) Location: TI Auditorium - ECSS 2.102.

Karthik Vasanth - General Manager, Texas Instruments Medical Business Unit

Please join Dr. Babak Fahimi in Electrical Engineering for our Distinguished Speaker on Energy Series on Thursday, April 24, 2:00pm in the TI Auditorium, ECSS 2.102.  (This talk was postponed from March 6 due to the campus wide power outage.)

Dr. Vasanth will be speaking on the very important role that medical electronics play in improving the quality of health care in the form of prevention, diagnosis and therapy of illness. The success of such devices depends on the ability to measure and interpret the wide variety of signals linked to the underlying condition. This talk will cover the range of process and design techniques to meet these requirements with the relevant power constraints.

There is a tradeoff between power, noise, linearity, reliability and cost in medical applications. Examples of ultrasound, CT and implantable systems will be discussed to illustrate the design challenges faced with the limited power budgets available. Future trends of medical devices could include direct measurements of biological signals and self powered devices. The illustrations will show the evolution of low power design and integration techniques.

There will also be time for group Q&A and then one-on-one questions with refreshments.

Please contact cindy.pitney@utdallas.edu if you need parking instructions.

Karleen Hesselbacher Senior Honors Thesis Exhibition

Opening Reception Friday, March 28, 2014, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

 

Karleen Hesselbacher's projections, moving video paintings, question the representation of conventions of sexuality surrounding the contemporary woman. Traditionally, corsets are used to change the appearance of a woman's body and, in the past,  represented a symbol of the woman who fits the norms of society.  In today’s world, the corset can symbolize overt sexuality or what is commonly known as a kink/fetish/BDSM. The artist uses superimposed, manipulated video clips of a chorus line to project onto a mannequin torso. The secondary projection of white noise will be interrupted by the silhouettes of the viewer, forming another visual layer in the work. Static is symbolic of a failed signal giving the piece a sense of control, lost.
