**Abstract :** In
this talk I will present some recent developments on a class of numerical
methods for the optimal control of multi-agent systems. Due to the
high-dimensionality and the nonlinearities of this type of problems, standard
techniques usually fail or they are completely inefficient. In order to reduce
the complexity of the problem, I will propose a general framework based on the
approximation of the constrained microscopic dynamics through the control of a
Boltzmann-type equation, showing that under suitable scaling this is equivalent
to the mean-field description of the original problem. A class of fast
algorithms, based on the simulation of the binary interactions of the Boltzmann
dynamics, is derived, and its consistency with respect to the mean-field
control problem is shown. Several numerical examples will show the
effectiveness of the proposed strategies in the context of opinion formation
and flocking dynamics.

**Abstract :** We
present two uniform estimates on stability and mean-field limit for the
"augmented Kuramoto model(AKM)" arising from the second-order lifting
of the first-order Kuramoto model(KM) for synchronization. In particular, we
address three issues such as synchronization estimate, uniform stability and mean-field
limit which are valid uniformly in time for the AKM. The derived mean-field
equation for the AKM corresponds to the dissipative Vlasov-McKean type
equation. The kinetic Kuramoto equation for distributed natural frequencies is
not compatible with the frequency variance functional approach for the complete
synchronization. In contrast, the kinetic equation for the AKM has a similar
structural similarity with the kinetic Cucker-Smale equation which admits the
Lyapunov functional approach for the variance. We present sufficient frameworks
leading to the uniform stability and mean-field limit for the AKM.

**Title : **Uniform-in-time
transition from discrete dynamics to continuous dynamics in the Cucker-Smale flocking

**Abstract :** We
study a uniform-in-time convergence from the discrete-time(in short, discrete)
Cucker-Smale (C-S) model to the continuous-time C-S model, which is valid for
the whole time-interval, as time-step tends to zero. Classical theory yields
the convergence results which are valid only in any finite-time interval. Our
uniform convergence estimate relies on two quantitive estimates
"asymptotic flocking estimate" and "uniform -stability estimate with respect
to initial data". In previous literature, most studies on the C-S flocking
have been devoted to the continuous-time model with general communication
weights, whereas flocking estimates have been done for the discrete-time model
with special network topologies such as the complete network with algebraically
decaying communication weights and rooted leaderships. For the discrete C-S
model with a regular and algebraically decaying communication weight,
asymptotic flocking estimate has been extensively studied in previous
literature. In contrast, for a general decaying communication weight,
corresponding flocking dynamics has not been addressed in literature due to the
difficulty of extending the Lyapunov functional approach to the discrete model.
In this paper, we present asymptotic flocking estimate for the discrete model
using the Lyapunov functional approach. Moreover, we present a uniform -stability estimate of the
solution for the discrete C-S model with respect to initial data. We combine
asymptotic flocking estimate and uniform stability to derive a uniform-in-time
convergence from the discrete C-S model to the continuous C-S model, as
time-step tends to zero.

quasi-neutral limit of the boundary layer solutions for the Euler-Poisson

**Title****
: **Viscoelastic properties of solid-like
and liquid-like materials measured via a pendulum-type viscoelastic
spectrometer

**Abstract
:** Viscoelastic properties of solid-like
materials, such as creep compliance, relaxation modulus and dynamic modulus,
are of paramount importance in characterizing the materials, understanding
their underlying deformation mechanisms and predicting their mechanical
behavior with existing mathematical models. Similarly, experimentally
determination of liquid viscosity cannot be overemphasized in the development
of modern science and technology. In this work, a pendulum-type viscoelastic
spectrometer (PVS) is adopted to experimentally determine the viscoelastic
properties at elevated temperatures, up to 100˚C, in a wide frequency
range (1 mHz ~ 100 kHz). The driving force of PVS is generated by magnetic
interactions through a permanent magnet placed inside the Helmholtz coil.
Deformation of the cantilever specimen is obtained with a laser-based
displacement measurement system, consisting of a solid-state laser and
silicon-based position sensor. As for viscosity of liquid, a standard cantilever
solid core, made of PMMA or polymeric foam, is placed in a small container
filled with the liquid under test. Under sinusoidal loading on the solid core
through magnetic interactions, its resonant responses are affected by damping
from the solid core and liquid. Through mathematical treatments on immersed
oscillators, the viscosity of the liquid can be determined at the driving
frequency. Experimental
data of several materials tested by the PVS will be presented, along with
discussions on their implications.

**Title**** : **Simultaneous
recovery of the temperature and species concentration from integral
equation model

**Abstract
: **Absorbtion spectroscopy is a advanced tool for flow diagnostics in
measuring multiple parameters of species. Such kinds of problems can be modeled
by some integral equations with known kernel, aiming to determine the
integrands from their integration values along all possible paths of injected
lasers. We consider the parameters detection problems in combustion
process, with the purpose of recovering the gas temperature and the
concentration of burned gas simultaneously using injected lasers along two
directions with multiple frequencies. For this nonlinear ill-posed
model, we consider its optimization version with some penalty
terms. An alternative iteration scheme (AIS) with convergence analysis is
proposed to solve this problem . Numerical implementations are
presented to show the validity of the proposed scheme.

Title: Diffusion and
geometry of domain

Abstract: We deal
with two topics concerning the interaction between diffusion and geometry of
domain. One is to classify the domains in Euclidean 3-space having a stationary
isothermic surface for the solutions of the Cauchy problem of the heat
equation. The point here is to use the theories of properly embedded minimal
surfaces and properly embedded constant mean curvature surfaces in Euclidean
3-space. The other gives the interaction between the short time behavior of the
fast diffusion and the principal curvatures of the boundary of the domain in
Euclidean N-space, where we consider the solutions of the Cauchy problem or the
initial-boundary value problem for some nonlinear fast diffusion equations.

Title: Boundary determination for magnetic Schrödinger
networks

Abstract: We study an inverse boundary value problem
for the magnetic Schrödinger network consisting of a finite graph with
boundary, 1-form on the directed edge set, which is regarded as a discrete
version of magnetic potential, and an electric potential, which is a
real-valued function on the vertex set. Governing equation on the network is
the discrete magnetic Schrödinger equation equipped with the 1-form and the
electric potential. Reconstruction procedure of the 1-form and the electric
potential on the boundary from the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map will be shown. Our
approach is based on the inverse problem for resistor network by Curtis and
Morrow [1]. Moreover, a continuous limit of the discrete magnetic Schrödinger
equation will be considered, which implies that our problem is regarded as a
discrete counterpart of the inverse boundary value problem

for the magnetic Schrödinger
equation on a bounded domain of the Euclidean spaces.

Title:?Joint sparse recovery problem: theory
and biomedical imaging applications

Abstract: In a multiple measurement vector
problem (MMV), where multiple signals share a common sparse support and are
sampled by a common sensing matrix, we can expect that the joint sparsity
enables a further reduction in the number of measurements required. While a
diversity gain from the joint sparsity has been demonstrated earlier in the
case of group LASSO, only recently it was shown by our group that similar
diversity gain can be achieved by greedy algorithms if they are combined with
subspace method. Our theory showed that these new class of hybrid algorithms
are nearly optimal with sufficiently accurate subspace estimate. In this talk,
I will describe the mathematical theory for joint sparse recovery problem.
Then, I will explain how such joint sparse recovery principle can be used?not
only to improve the resolution limit but also to overcome the nonlinearity
originated from inverse scattering problem.

Title : A mathematical model of glioma invasion and
proliferation

Glioblastoma is a highly invasive brain tumor. This invasive behavior of tumor
cells is responsible for low survival rate and microenvironment plays an important
role in the active migration. A thorough understanding of the microenvironment
would provide a foundation to generate new strategies in therapeutic drug
development. We developed a mathematical model to better understand the role of
microenvironment in creating different invasion patterns. We analyze the
migration patterns of glioma cells from the main tumor, and show that the
various patterns observed in experiments can be obtained by a model's
simulations, by choosing appropriate values of the key model parameters of the
PDE model. These includes chemotactic sensitivity, haptotactic strength, and
cell-cell adhesion. Cancer is a complex, multiscale process, in which genetic
mutations occurring at a sub-cellular level manifest themselves as functional
changes at the cellular and tissue scale. A multi-scale model will also be
discussed in order to get more detailed information on cell migration and
proliferation under the influence of a particular microRNA (miR451) and its
counterpart, AMPK complex. Biochemical and Biomechanical control of cell
proliferation and migration play a significant role in regulation of tumor
growth overall and might lead to better treatment option of eradicating the
whole tumor population including 'invisible' migratory tumor cells.?

Title : Generalized immersed boundary method applied to
mathematical modeling in biology

A general version of the immersed boundary (IB) method combined with the
unconstrained Kirchhoff rod theory has been developed to study biological fluid
mechanics in the filamentous structure such as bacterial flagella and DNA
strand. A thin elastic filament (rod) in the Kirchhoff model that resists
bending and twisting can be modeled as a ¡°three-dimensional space curve'
together with an orthonormal triad (material frame) at each point of the rod.
The triad indicates how much the filament bends or twists or shears. This is a
well-established theory in the statics and dynamics of thin elastic filaments
without fluid. Combining Kirchhoff rod theory with the standard models of
viscous incompressible fluids will allow us to study the complicated
hydrodynamics of bacterial swimming, DNA supercoiling, and many more.

Title : Spectral super-resolution in metamaterial composites

We investigate the optical properties of periodic composites containing
inclusions having a frequency dependent negative electrical permittivity, with
a very small imaginary part,in a normal material matrix. We consider the case
where these inclusions have sharp corners, and following Hetherington and
Thorpe, use analytic results to argue that it is then possible to deduce the
shape of the corner (its included angle) by measurements of the absorptance of
such composites when the scale size of the inclusions and period cell is much
finer than the wavelength. These analytic arguments are supported by highly
accurate numerical results for the effective permittivity function of such
composites as a function of the permittivity ratio of inclusions to matrix. The
results show that this function has a continuous spectral component with limits
independent of the area fraction of inclusions, and with the same limits for
both square and staggered square arrays. In other words, the composite absorbs
significant energy over a range of frequencies with limits controlled by the
corner angle. In this range energy flows towards each corner where it ends up
being absorbed in an infinitesimal neighborhood of the corner. For staggered
arrays where the squares are almost touching, the absorption spectrum is an
extremely sensitive probe of the inclusion separation distance and acts like a
Vernier scale. This is joint work with Johan Helsing (Lund) and Ross McPhedran
(Sydney).

Title : Recent advances in locally conservative finite element methods

This talk deals with locally conservative methods and consists of two parts:
first part on adaptive mixed finite element methods and second on new
discontinuous Galerkin methods. First part is based on joint work with Dongho
Kim. We study adaptive mixed finite element discretizations for nonlinear elliptic
problems. The mixed method conserves the mass locally and produces accurate
flux even for highly nonhomogeneous media with large jumps in the physical
properties. We derive reliable and efficient a posteriori error estimators for
the error control of our approximation to the nonlinear problem under
consideration. Several numerical simulation will be presented. Second part is
based on joint work with Youngmok Jeon. A new class of hybrid discontinuous
Galerkin methods is introduced and analyzed for second-order elliptic
equations. The main feature of the our method is that their approximate
solutions can be expressed in an element-by-element fashion in terms of an
approximate trace satisfying a global weak formulation, which reduces globally
coupled degrees of freedom dramatically. Several numerical results will be
presented to support the new theory.

Title : On the coupled system with the Navier-Stokes equations

We consider the systems coupled with the Navier-Stokes equations. Especially,
we introduce the Navier-Stokes-Vlasov-Fokker-Planck equations which describes
the motion of the fluid and the particle of the spray model and also
Navier-Stokes-Keller-Segel equations which describes the motion of the swimming
bacteria in the fluids. Also we consider Ericksen-Leslie equations which
describes the motion of the liquid crystal.

Title : Near-cloaking using transformation optics

Abstract: Cloaking is the technique that make some objects invisible in the way
that cloaking device itself is imperceptible. The transformation optics
approach uses the change of variable by some transformation that blows a point,
so that it is singular. Near-cloaking is a kind of the regularization of this
singular cloaking. We review the results on near-cloaking and techniques used
in it. We propose briefly a near-cloaking technique based on multi-coating.

Title : Unsupervised Multiple Objects Segmentation by the Adaptive Global
Maximum Grouping

Abstract: We propose a new method to segment an image into multiple objects. A
multiple objects segmentation problem is unstable since the result considerably
depends on the number of objects xed a priori. So, one of the most important
tasks in solving the problem is to automatically get the number. The method we
proposed is not only able to find the reasonable number of distinct regions
which form the image, but also able to give us information about the meaningful
objects. It also performs well for noisy images. Our method is made up of two
procedures. First, we deal with the histogram of the image. By applying the
adaptive global maximum searching process we have developed, we can
automatically obtain the number of local maxima of the histogram, which
signifies the number of different regions in the image. At the same time, we
have the centroids of each interval with a local maximum and these would help
us to find the desired objects. In the second place, we derive a simple
calculation to segment the image composed of multiple objects. Then, we split
the image into sets of pixels with similar intensity values according to the
number and centroids obtained above.

Title : Analysis of Nematic Liquid Crystals with Singularities of degree 1/2

Abstract: Although singularities of degree 1 or -1 appear in the energy
minimizers for harmonic maps or Oseen-Frank energy, there are many situations
where singulairties of degree 1/2 or -1/2 have been observed. But there is no
mathematical frame work to prove such singularities. In a joint with P. Bauman
and D. Phillips, we use Landau-de Gennes Energy to prove that such
singularities do exist. In the proof, we employ a famous well-known theory
developed by Bethuel, Brezis, and Helein. To the best knowledge of the authors,
this work is the first result in this direction.

Title : Strong influence of a combination of a triple fiber on shear stress in
fiber-reinforced composites

Abstract: Stiff fiber-reinforced composites have very low strength in
longitudinal shear and this has been explained by high stress concentrations in
the narrow regions between neighboring parallel fibers. Until now, much
attention has been focused on the estimate for such high stress concentration,
especially associated with the distance between adjoining fibers. In this talk,
we consider a strong influence of a combination of a triple fiber, as well as
the distance between a pair of fibers, on the blow-up so that the stress concentration
can be significantly accelerated by adding a small fiber in-between fibers.
