Optimal Transport, Entropy, and Risk Measures on Wiener space

We discuss the interplay between entropy, large deviations, and optimal couplings on Wiener space.

In particular we prove a new rescaled version of Talagrand’s transport inequality. As an application, we consider rescaled versions of the entropic risk measure which are sensitive to risks in the fine structure of Brownian paths.

Changing and Challenging Material Definitions

Despite thousands of years of history, glass still challenges our perceptions and definitions.

In this lecture, Drs. Charbonneau and Larson tackle “the glass problem”, to explore and understand the mutable properties of a material which is, by definition, disorderly.

zombie images

What is it that makes us so scared of, and yet so attracted to, the living dead? Why is it that shambling or sprinting corpses still retain such relentless power?

Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg presents a whirlwind look back at 100 years of cinematic zombies and their evolution into a modern pop culture icon, with special attention to the ways in which Night of the Living Dead permanently impacted the media landscape.
