Department of Mathematics and Statistical Science Algebra Seminar Series
About the Seminar
The Department of Mathematics and Statistical Science Algebra Seminar is a graduate student led seminar series that provides graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in mathematics the opportunity to give professional mathematical talks. These talks are open to any who would like to attend, and their contents reflect a variety of mathematical disciplines.
Times and Locations
For Fall 2021, the Algebra Seminar meets on alternating Tuesdays, from 11:00am - 12:00pm, on Zoom (occasionally it will also be offered in-person in TLC 247; the in-person offerings will be noted in the schedule below).
- We will use the same Zoom Link each week.

Dr. Jennifer Johnson-Leung The shape of social contact networks and topological data analysis My motivation for using topological data analysis has arisen in the context of understanding community-level susceptibility to infectious disease transmission via network and agent-based simulations. After a brief overview of this motivation, I will explain the construction of the Vietoris-Rips complex associated to a discrete metric space and the persistence diagrams that are constructed from it. We will then consider metrics on the space of persistence diagrams and look at a continuous embedding of this space, via tropical polynomials, into Euclidean space. I plan to conclude the talk with some speculation about separating diagrams under this embedding. |
