info  Music Information Retrieval - When Music meets Computer Science Prof. Meinard Müller February 1, 2017 / 16:15 ECTS-Points: not yet determined
Abstract, registration & information:
Significant digitization efforts have resulted in large music collections, which comprise music-related documents of various types and formats including text, symbolic data, audio, image, and video. In the field of music information retrieval (MIR) great efforts are directed towards the development of technologies that allow users to access and explore music in all its different facets. For example, during playback of some CD recording, a digital music player may present the corresponding musical score while highlighting the current playback position within the score. On demand, additional information about melodic and harmonic progression or rhythm and tempo is automatically presented to the listener. A suitable user interface displays the musical structure of the current piece of music and allows the user to directly jump to any key part within the recording without tedious fast-forwarding and rewinding. In this talk, I discuss a number of current research problems in the field of music information retrieval and indicate possible solutions. One fundamental problem is to decompose a given music signal into semantically meaningful components. To guide the decomposition, one may exploit additional information, either in the form of specific acoustic properties of the components or in the form of additional score information. As an example, I show how to compute a notewise decomposition of a music signal by applying a score-informed variant of non-negative matrix factorization (NMF). Finally, I discuss various audio editing and manipulating applications to highlight the potential of these decomposition techniques.

Abstract, registration & information:
We consider the question of when delay systems, which are intrinsically infinite dimensional, can be represented by finite dimensional systems. Specifically, we give conditions for when all the information about the solutions of the delay system can be obtained from the solutions of a finite system of ordinary differential equations. For linear autonomous systems and linear systems with time-dependent input we give necessary and sufficient conditions and in the nonlinear case we give sufficient conditions. The ideas and results are illustrated by models for infectious diseases and physiologically structured populations.

info  Matrix-free block-smoothers for higher-order DG methods Dr. Eike Müller December 15, 2016 / 16:15 ECTS-Points: not yet determined
Abstract, registration & information:
To fully utilise computational resources for applications based on Discontinuous Galerkin discretisations, efficient and algorithmically optimal implementations are necessary. Traditionally a given PDE is solved by assembling a system of sparse equations and inverting the resulting matrix equation algebraically, for example with an AMG method. However, on modern multicore chip architectures with a poor FLOP-to-bandwidth ratio this approach becomes very expensive. Let N denote the number of unknowns per element. To apply the operator, in each grid cell a matrix of size N x N has to be loaded from memory and a dense matrix-vector multiplication with low arithmetic intensity is carried out; the overall cost of the method is O(N^2). This cost is reduced by matrix-free implementations where the matrix is re-calculated on-the fly. For tensor-product elements in d dimensions sum factorisation techniques reduce the computational complexity from O(N^2)=O(n^{2d}) to O(d*n^{d+1}), where n is the number of unknowns in one direction.

In preconditioned Krylov-subspace solvers and multigrid smoothers it is often necessary to invert block-diagonal matrices. Even though the action of A is implemented in a matrix-free way, local block-matrices D_e of size n^d x n^d are assembled in each cell and then inverted with an exact LU- or Cholesky-factorisation. Overall this requires O(n^{2d}) bandwidth-bound operations and quickly becomes the bottleneck of the solver as the order n increases. To circumvent this problem, we solve the system D_e.x=y approximately with an iterative method. Since the application of D_e can be implemented in a matrix-free way, the action of D_e^{-1} becomes FLOP bound and the cost decreases from O(n^{2d}) to O(n_{iter} * d * n^{d+1}) where n_{iter} is the number of iterations required to solve the system in each cell.

We study the efficiency of this approach for the solution of linear convection-diffusion systems; problems of this type arise, for example, in operator splitting approaches for unstable porous media flow. We demonstrate the algorithmic and computational efficiency of the method for a hybrid multigrid algorithm with hp-coarsening, similar to [Bastian et al. (2012), Num. Lin. Alg. with Appl. 19 (2), pp. 367-388]: on the finest level a matrix-free block-Jacobi or block-SSOR smoother is applied to the high-order system, and the low-order system on the coarser levels is solved with AMG.

All code is implemented in the EXADUNE code base and we demonstrate the efficiency of our approach for a range of elliptic PDEs, including a convection-dominated problem and the stationary SPE10 benchmark.

info  HGS MathComp von Neumann Lecture: Revealing physics in microscale air-sea interaction using computational simulation Prof. Wu-ting Tsai December 5, 2016 / 11:15 ECTS-Points: not yet determined
Abstract, registration & information:
The flows in close proximity to the air-sea interface control the exchanges between the atmosphere and the ocean, such as gases, heat, vapor, and momentum. The scales of the flow motions, including surface waves and turbulence, are much smaller than that of the atmosphere and the ocean. The processes within this surface layer, however, can profoundly affect the large-scale geophysical flows. The topic has been studied mainly by experimental measurements in the field and laboratory. Numerical simulation provides a complementary tool to reveal the underlying physics, but also pose challenges to the computations due to the inherent nonlinearity of the free boundary and the distinct length/time scales in the turbulent flow and wave motions. In this talk, I will briefly review the numerical method we have developed to solve this free-boundary problem. I will then present recent progress in evincing new physics in microscale air-sea interaction using numerical simulation. These studies are either aimed to elucidate previously unexplained observations or motivated/inspired by the recent innovative measurements.

Abstract, registration & information:
Mathematical models of tumor dynamics have become more accurate and accepted in recent years and enable a better prediction of initiation and development of a tumor, as well as its response to therapy. Using models one can compare different approaches or design new treatment strategies, which then can be tailored to individual patient data.

I will present some simple mathematical models for different problems in oncology; preventive gastric cancer screening, head and neck cancer response to radiation therapy, and combination therapies for pancreatic cancer. Mathematical models will be fit to retrospective clinical training data to derive parameter distributions for each participating mechanism. Parameter distributions with small variation will be collapsed into uniform rate constants, leaving variable mechanisms that are most likely to determine patient-specific outcomes. Calibrated models will be validated on independent training data, before virtual "in silico" trials determine optimal treatment protocols on a per patient basis.

Additional information:
After the talk there will be a meetup with the speaker to discuss different subjects in the area of cancer modelling. Discussion topics will include the impact of mathematical and computational models in the clinic, the challenges of interdisciplinary collaboration, and the current hot research topics. The meetup is tailored to provide a relaxed atmosphere where graduate students can have an introspect discussion of the field. Dr. Enderling will also address questions such as:
- What would you have wanted to know when you started working in this field?
- What are the "dos" and "don_ts" for PhD students starting their research in this field?
Master and PhD students are highly encouraged to attend.

info  The role of numerical analysis in multi-physics applications Prof. Barbara Wohlmuth November 9, 2016 / 16:15 ECTS-Points: not yet determined
Abstract, registration & information:
In this talk, we address several aspects of model and cost reduction techniques for the numerical simulation of PDEs. Firstly, we consider tearing and interconnection strategies in combination with interface models and reduced basis methods. These techniques are of special interest in the case of vibro-acoustic simulation and can largely reduce the number of degrees of freedom. Numerical results in case of orthotropic material laws are given for a violinbridge as well as a timber building.
Secondly, we discuss surrogate models which aim at a complexity reduction. Here we introduce locally mass conservative scheme in a local postprocessing step as well as adaptive control techniques for resilient multigrid solvers. In all cases, we provide the numerical analysis, algortihmic aspects and illustrative large scale results.

info  Method of multiple shooting for computing shortest descending paths on convex terrains Prof. Phan Thanh An November 3, 2016 / 14:15 ECTS-Points: not yet determined
Abstract, registration & information:
Given a polyhedral terrain and two points p, q on the terrain, a path joining p to q on the terrain is descending if the z-coordinate of a point v never increases while we move v along the path from p to q. The problem of finding shortest descending paths joining two given points on a polyhedral terrain was posed first by de Berg and van Kreveld (in Algorithmica, 18 (1997), pp. 306-322). Recently, the problem of finding approximations of such paths is considered by Ahmed, Lodha, and Lubiw (2010), Wei and Joneja (2013), Cheng and Jin (2014), etc. using Steiner point, graph, and sequence tree techniques.

In this talk we introduce the method of multiple shooting for solving the problem. It includes the factors: (f1) partition of the terrain, (f2) the straightness condition for the shortest descending paths at shooting points, and (f3) update of shooting points. In particular, the method does not rely on Steiner point, graph and sequence tree techniques on the entire terrain. If the straightness condition is satisfied then we obtain a local shortest descending path.

The corresponding algorithm is implemented in C++ using CGAL. Numerical results nonetheless indicate that the result is close to a local shortest descending path, even if it does not fulfil the straightness condition.

Abstract, registration & information:
Dimension reduction or feature selection is an effective strategy to handle contaminated data and to deal with high dimensionality while providing better prediction. To deal with outlier proneness and spurious variables, we propose a method performing the outright rejection of discordant observations together with the selection of relevant variables.
To solve this problem, it is recasted as a mixed integer program which allows the use of efficient commercial solver. Also we propose an alternate projected gradient algorithm (proximal) so get a nice appoximated solution.

Abstract, registration & information:
The unique electronic, optical, and mechanical properties of 2D materials have sparked an extraordinary level of theoretical and experimental activity. Stacking a few layers of 2D materials such as graphene and molybdenum disulfide, for example, opens the possibility to tune the electronic and optical properties of these materials. One of the main issues encountered in the mathematical and computational modeling of layered 2D materials is that lattice mismatch and rotations between the layers destroy the periodic character of the system.

Even basic concepts like the Cauchy-Born strain energy density, the electronic density of states, and the Kubo-Greenwood formulas for transport properties have not been given a rigorous analysis in the incommensurate setting. New approximate approaches will be discussed and the validity and efficiency of these approximations will be examined from mathematical and numerical analysis perspectives.

info  Root Functions: A Special Class of Boolean Functions Professor Debesh K. Das September 19, 2016 / 11:30 ECTS-Points: not yet determined
Abstract, registration & information:
The talk introduces a special class of Boolean functions known as root functions. We show that there exists such class of Boolean functions, which can never appear as faulty response in irredundant two-level AND-OR combinational circuits even when any arbitrary multiple stuck-at faults are injected. Conversely, we show that any other Boolean function can appear as a faulty response in an irredundant realization of some root function under certain stuck-at faults. We characterize this new class of functions and explore their different properties. We show that for n variables, their number is exactly equal to the number of independent dominating sets in a Boolean n-cube. Also, we show that an n-variable root-function with minimum number of true minterms, where n = 2k - 1; k > 2, possesses some inherent error detection/correcting properties.

Dr. Debesh K. Das received the B.E. and M.E. degrees in electronics and telecommunication engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Engineering from Jadavpur University, Calcutta, India. He is currently with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Jadavpur University, as a Professor. Prior to this, he served as Minister-in-Charge of Information Technology in the Govt. of West Bengal. His research interests include logic synthesis and testing of VLSI circuits and fault-tolerant computing. He has published more than 100 papers in reputed Journals and International Conference Proceedings.
