  • Math Colloquium

    The colloquium's participants include faculty members of the Department of Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science (MEC) together with invited speakers from different universities. The talks are usually accessible on a variety of levels. Students are welcome.

    Refreshments are served before the talks (schedule and abstracts are posted below). For more information, please contact colloquium organizers.


    Upcoming Presentation: 

    Date: Thursday, December 5, 2013, Room: E501 (Refreshments will be served at 2:20pm)
    Time: 2:30 - 3:30pm.

    SPEAKER: Milena Cuellar (Professor at LaGuardia Community College / CUNY)

    Topic: The Roaring Sun: a tale of observations, models, and predictions.” (Accessible for a general audience. Students are encouraged to attend.)

    Abstract: The Sun sustains all life on Earth. For thousands of years many cultures venerated the Sun for giving us heat and light. Discovering the secrets of the Sun has kept scientists busy for the last three thousand years. The activity of the Sun is observed by the appearance and disappearance of dark blemishes on the solar disk known as sunspots. The body of the Sun is literally roaring with turbulent boiling motions. The sunspots are starting points of explosive flares and ejections of charged magnetic particles, known as solar wind that sometimes hit our planet 93 million miles away. Consequences of these roars from the Sun range from Northern Lights, radio blackouts or power outages. This colloquium will present how we are trying to capture the activity of the Sun from the observation of the cyclic activity of the sunspots, the Sun's"heartbeat", by modeling the Sun mysterious and complex behavior with fundamental physical laws to make predictions of the Sun's future activity. Predicting the solar activity could bring insight into a wide range of phenomena from climate change, seismological activity and telecommunications reliability to drivers of human attitudes and motivations.
