Colloquium Friday, September 18: Dr. Matthew Mizuhara, The College of New Jersey

Join us Friday at 3 PM via ZOOM! Dr. Mizuhara will speak on... ORDER EMERGING FROM CHAOS:
UNDERSTANDING PATTERN FORMATION IN LARGE RANDOM SYSTEMS To avoid zoom-bombs, we are not posting the link. If you would like to join, please contact Dr. Quinn Morris for zoom information! Abstract: A surprising occurrence in nature is the emergence of spontaneous, collective behaviors within a large group of individuals. Striking examples include the ability of certain species of fireflies to synchronize their light flashes, or the ability of pedestrians to shake an entire bridge in lockstep. The Kuramoto model is a non-linear differential equation system which has been used to explore such pattern formation in a wide range of systems. In this talk we will review the history of this model, and present several recent advances in the study of the Kuramoto model on random graphs.
