24 04 Noticia CicloTítulo: "BayesMortalityPlus: A package in R for Bayesian graduation of mortality modelling"
Data: 26/04/2024
Horário: 15:30h
Local: No Laboratório de Sistemas Estocásticos no Bloco I sala 044-b (subsolo), do Centro de Tecnologia, Ilha do Fundão da Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro.

Palestrante: Lucas Moura Faria e Silva

Resumo: The BayesMortalityPlus package provides a framework for modelling and predicting mortality data. The package includes tools for the construction of life tables based on Heligman-Pollard laws and also on dynamic linear smoothers. Flexibility is available in terms of modelling so that the response variable may be modeled as Poisson, Binomial or Gaussian. If the time dimension is available, the package provides a Bayesian version for the well-known Lee-Carter model that allows for estimating and projecting mortality over time. Some illustrations are considered to show the capability of the proposed package to model mortality data.

Título: On the harmonic flow of geometric structures
Resumo: In this talk, I will report on recent results of an ongoing collaboration with Éric Loubeau, Andrés Moreno and Henrique Sá Earp on the study of the harmonic flow of H-structures. This is the negative gradient flow of a natural Dirichlet-type energy functional on a given isometric class of H-structures on a closed Riemannian n-manifold, where H is the stabilizer in SO of a finite collection of tensors in Rn. Using general Bianchi-type identities of H-structures, we are able to prove monotonicity formulas for scale-invariant local versions of the energy, similar to the classic formulas proved by Struwe and Chen (1988-89) in the theory of harmonic map heat flow. We then deduce a general epsilon-regularity result along the harmonic flow and, more importantly, we get long-time existence and finite-time singularity results in parallel to the classical results proved by Chen-Ding (1990) in harmonic map theory. In particular, we show that if the energy of the initial H-structure is small enough, depending on the C^0-norm of its torsion, then the harmonic flow exists for all time and converges to a torsion-free H-structure. Moreover, we prove that the harmonic flow of H-structures develops a finite time singularity if the initial energy is sufficiently small but there is no torsion-free H-structure in the homotopy class of the initial H-structure. Finally, based on the analogous work of He-Li (2021) for almost complex structures, we give a general construction of examples where the later finite-time singularity result applies on the flat n-torus, provided the n-th homotopy group of the quotient SO/H is non-trivial; e.g. when n=7 and H=G2, or when n=8 and H=Spin(7).

Título: Completeness of metrics and linearization of groupoids
Resumo: Every smooth fiber bundle admits a complete Ehresmann connection. I will talk about the story of this theorem and its relation with Riemannian submersions. Then, after discussing some foundations of Riemannian geometry of Lie groupoids and stacks, I will present a generalization of the theorem into this framework, which somehow answers an open problem on linearization. Talk based on collaborations with my former student M. de Melo.

Resumo: Quais qualidades a matemática nos ensina e que podemos levar para a nossa vida diária? Em poucas palavras: rebeldia, coragem e criatividade. Ah sim, além de super-poderes. Sim, a matemática nos dá poderes! A boa notícia é que não é preciso ser matemático para desenvolver essas habilidades, apenas use a matemática como guia. Falarei também um pouco sobre o projeto de divulgação matemática: Fantástico Mundo Matemático (Youtube, Instagram e Facebook). O Joaquim pediu para avisar que a palestra é para todos os públicos, então só vem! Se não conhece o Joaquim, procura a gente no YouTube.

Resumo: Quantum information processing is at the cusp of having significant impacts on technology and society in the form of providing unbreakable security, ultra-high-precision distributed sensing with applications to metrology and science discovery (e.g., LIGO), much higher-rate deep space optical communications than possible with conventional systems, and polynomial speeds up on graphical search with implications to big data. Most of these applications are enabled by high-rate distributed shared entanglement between pairs and groups of users. A critical missing component that prevents crossing this threshold is a distributed infrastructure in the form of a world-wide "Quantum Internet"  to enable this. This motivates our study of quantum networks, namely what the right architecture is and how to operate it, i.e., route multiple quantum information flows, and allocate resources fairly and dynamically. In this talk we review a specific entanglement-based quantum network architecture and present opportunities and challenges related to resource sharing among multiple parties of users.  In particular, we focus on issues related to resource allocation based on global/local state information and the benefits of path diversity. Last, we evaluate the performance of an entanglement-based quantum switch.
