Mathematics of multilayer networks for data science and complex systems

Networks are a natural representation for datasets arising in biology (neuroscience, microbiomes and genetics), social systems (reality mining, politics and online social networks) and critical infrastructures (internet, power grid, and transportation system). Due in part to the diversity of applications, there remains a significant gap between the popular heuristics that are widely used for these systems and the development of rigorous techniques grounded on first principles in mathematics and statistics. I will describe my analyses of multilayer networks in which different layers encode different types of edges, such as complementary datatypes or a network at different instances in time. This research involves a variety of techniques (e.g., linear algebra, perturbation theory, random matrix theory, and computational topology/geometry) and is both applied and theoretical. For example, I will discuss the ranking of U.S. Mathematics Departments using data from the Mathematics Genealogy Project as well as describe the information-theoretic limitations on the detectability of communities in networks. I will focus on situations in which applied mathematics can have significant impact in network science as well as describe situations where the applications are demanding new mathematical methods.

WeBWork problems are authored in an interpreted language that combines elements of perl and of TeX, extended by libraries of perl code.

This talk will boot a WeBWork server from "live" USB stick and introduce WebWork programming by editing myTestCourse/Demo problem 3,
which asks students to differentiate a quadratic.

You will get the most out of the talk if you are able to work along on your own laptop with a "WeBWork live" USB stick.
If you give me a blank USB stick (4G or greater) in advance of the talk, I'll return it with a bootable image of
WW2.12_Ubuntu16.04_Vanilla_LiveDVD.iso ready to use during the talk.

For a preview of the talk, see http://ww2.math.buffalo.edu/webwork/intro_to_programming.html

 Contracting geodesics in CAT(0) groups
Abstract: The geodesicity condition for Gromov delta hyperbolic groups is a coarse local condition, in other words, in order to check whether a given edge path is a geodesic you need only to check that subsegments of length m, where m depends on delta, are geodesics. The formal way of stating the above is to say that hyperbolic groups admit a regular language that reads all geodesics in the group. This seemingly simple observation has a lot of interesting consequences. For example, one can use it to show that hyperbolic groups have a rational growth function. Another consequence is the fact that the boundary of a hyperbolic group is a subshift of finite type (over Z). Charney and Sultan introduced the notion of contracting boundaries for CAT(0) spaces, in short, these are the collection of all "hyperbolic directions" in a CAT(0) space. This talk will be about our theorem with Josh Eike proving that contracting geodesics in CAT(0) groups are realized by a regular language.

Applied Math/Complex Networks Seminar-Katharine (Kate) Anderson, Carnegie Mellon University
Skill networks and measures of complex human capital

Abstract: We propose a novel, network-based method for measuring worker skills. We demonstrate the method using data from an online free- lance website. Using the tools of network analysis, we divide skills into endogenous categories based on their relationship with other skills in the market. Workers who specialize in these different areas earn dramatically different wages. We then show that in this mar- ket, network-based measures of human capital provide more insight into wages than traditional human capital measures. In particular, we show that workers with diverse skills earn higher wages than those with more specialized skills. Moreover, we can distinguish between two different types of workers benefiting from skill diversity: jacks- of-all-trades, whose skills can be applied independently on a wide range of jobs, and synergistic workers, whose skills are useful in combination and fill a hole in the labor market. On average, workers whose skills are synergistic earn more than jacks-of-all-trades. This framework has the potential to reduce friction in online job markets, improve employer-employee matches, and guide worker training and marketing decisions.

Local-triviality dimension of actions of compact quantum groups

Abstract:  "Local-triviality dimension of actions of compact quantum groups"
We introduce the local-triviality dimension of an action of a compact quantum group on a unital C*-algebra using completely positive contractive order zero maps of Winter and Zacharias. In the case of a compact Hausdorff group acting on a compact Hausdorff space our definition recovers the usual local triviality of a compact principal bundle.
Actions with finite local-triviality dimension are automatically free and there exists an analog of an n-universal bundle (in the sense of Steenrod) for any compact quantum group G. Our main motivating examples are the Matsumoto-Hopf fibration and the antipodal action on free orthogonal quantum sphere. As the main application, we prove a Borsuk-Ulam-type conjecture of Baum, Dąbrowski and Hajac in the case where the compact quantum group G admits a classical subgroup whose induced action has finite local-triviality dimension.
