Richard M. Karp Distinguished Lecture — On Some Optimization Problems Involving a Large Number of Matrices

Calvin Lab Auditorium (1st Floor) Calvin Laboratory (Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing)
  • Wilfrid Gangbo, UCLA
The past few years have witnessed an increased momentum in efforts to formulate optimal transportation problems in non commutative settings. These studies were motivated by finding appropriate metrics for equations in quantum mechanics or problems in quantum game theory. In this talk, we briefly survey some usefulness of the classical optimal transport theory and then switch to another transport...

CCB Seminar: The effects of cross-trait assortative mating on genetic correlation estimators

125 Li Ka Shing Center
  • Dr. Noah Zaitlen, Assistant Professor, UCLA
Abstract: Positive genetic correlation estimates are commonly interpreted as evidencethat two traits share overlapping biological features. With the increasing avail-ability of large consortium and biobank datasets, considerable research activityhas focused on cataloging the genetic correlation structure of complex humantraits in order to better understand shared etiology and transdiagnostic...
