Title: Collision dynamics in some gravitational N-body problems

Abstract: The equations of motion for gravitating bodies have singularities when any two of the bodies occupy the same point in space, i.e. when there is a collision.  It is well known, but still quite interesting, that one can make sense of orbits that ``go through'' collisions by a process called regularization.  I'll introduce the idea of regularization and illustrate its use in some numerical calculations

Title: Oriented Matroids and Combinatorial Neural Codes.

Abstract: A combinatorial neural code is convex if it arises as the intersection pattern of convex open subsets of Euclidean space. We relate the emerging theory of convex neural codes to the established theory of oriented matroids, in both a category-theoretic sense and with respect to feasibility and complexity. By way of this connection, we prove that all convex codes are related to some representable oriented matroid, and we show that deciding whether a neural code is convex is NP-hard.

Title: An Introduction to Quantum Key Distribution


Abstract: Quantum mechanics was one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs of the last century with applications still being found.  Since the 1970’s mathematicians and physicists have been exploring how quantum mechanics can be used in cryptography to achieve previously thought impossible results.  In this talk we will give an overview of the problem of key establishment and how quantum phenomena can be used to achieve secure key establishment

Title: Combinatorial Game Theory

Abstract: This will be a talk which begins with the game of Nim and Sprague-Grundy numbers. We will then discuss a few newer games and some recent results.  The level of the talk should be suitable for graduate students and even some interested undergraduates.
