Seminario Dottorato: Geometric Surface Processing for Computer Graphics

Wednesday 5 December 2012 h. 15:00, room 2BC30
Marco RUCCI (Dip. Mat.)
"Geometric Surface Processing for Computer Graphics"

-Abstract
The application of mathematical models based on Partial Differential Equations to image processing and computer graphics problems has been extremely successful over the past 20 years. A popular method to approach geometric processing and evolving surfaces has consisted of a Lagrangian setup where a surface is explicitly represented as a piecewise-linear mesh. In particular, geometric surface flows have been extensively used in mesh processing.

The problem of reaching a birational classification of (smooth) complex projective varieties is classical in algebraic geometry.

Seminario Dottorato: FX derivatives and jump models

Wednesday 7 November 2012 h. 15:00, room 2BC30
Giulio MIGLIETTA (Dip. Mat. - Padova)
"FX derivatives and jump models"

-Abstract
After a quick overview of the needed probabilistic concepts, I present the building blocks of modern mathematical finance with some emphasis on the foreign-exchange (FX) market.
The anomalies recently experienced by the EURCHF (Euro - Swiss Franc) currency pair furnish the motivation for some simple extensions of the mainstream models used in the industry, namely models in which asset prices can exhibit discontinuities.

Wednesday 24 October 2012 h. 15:00, room 2BC30
Alice PAVARIN (Dip. Mat. - Padova)
"Recollements from tilting modules"

-Abstract
In this talk I will expose some special and computable examples of recollements and tilting theory.
