The talk is elementary and discusses empirical modelling of single variables with insurance losses as example. There are in such cases little or no theory to go on, and the amount of data is many situation quite scarce. Why do we so often limit ourselves to fit two-parameter families? It will be suggested that it may be a good idea to work with more flexible models with three or four parameters and that this may provide a nice framework for automating the entire procedure for the computer to work alone. Sure, with little data the parameters may be unstably estimated, but that may not apply equally to the distributions they define. Many-parameter families suitable for insurance losses will be reviewed with some simple asymptotics in an example allowing this and with Monte Carlo to throw light on the issue in other cases.

Mediehverdagen til norske tenåringer domineres i stor grad av globale plattformer som YouTube, Snapchat, TikTok og Netflix. Ser vi konturene av en «tapt» generasjon for norske medier? Hva betyr i så fall det for unge selv, mediebransjen og den politiske styringen av mediene? Nytt forskningsprosjekt skal studere global ungdomskultur og globale underholdningsmedier.

Philip Kitcher is the John Dewey Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University. His work is highly influential within the philosophy of science and beyond, and some of his research interests lie in the ethical and political constraints on scientific research, the evolution of altruism and morality, and the seeming conflict between science and religion. He was elected a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2002, and the American Philosophical Association awarded him its inaugural Prometheus Prize in 2006 for lifetime achievement in “expanding the frontiers of science and philosophy.”

Her samles vi for å diskutere et verk på portugisisk som studenter og andre interesserte har lest noen sider av på forhånd. (Tilgjengelig fra nettsiden.) Den som presenterer boka, forklarer hvorfor hun eller han valgte den, forteller hvorfor valgte de sidene det er snakk om, og sier ellers det om forfatteren og verket som hun eller han syns er mest interessant. Deretter kan alle deltakerne diskutere det som har blitt sagt, og si hva de selv syns osv. Alt foregår på portugisisk.

Abstract: Mixed-dimensional partial differential equations (PDEs) are equations coupling unknown fields defined over domains of differing topological dimensions. Such mixed-dimensional PDEs naturally arise in a wide range of fields including geology, biomedicine, and fracture mechanics. We introduce an automated framework dedicated to mixed-dimensional problems as part of the FEniCS library. This talk gives an overview of the abstractions and algorithms involved. The introduced tools will be illustrated by concrete examples of applications in biomedicine (see below for more detailed context).

This talk is part of the Mechanics Lunch Seminar series. Bring-your-own-lunch and lots of questions.
