Algebra seminar  March 7, 1pm, lecture room M5 


We will continue on Thursday, March 7, in M5 at 1pm by the talk:
John Bourke
Homotopical cocompleteness of enriched categories
Abstract:
We will consider categories enriched in a monoidal model category V that are accessible and admit certain limits, and will prove that they admit weighted homotopy colimits. As a special case, we will apply our results to the infinity cosmoi of Riehl and Verity. This is a report on ongoing work with Steve Lack and Lukas Vokrinek.

Stability shaped by the noise in difference equations
Abstract: An active role of noise perturbations in forming stability properties of solutions of difference equations is explored. Some of our models are inspired by mathematical biology where noise enters naturally through the influence of the environment. We discuss how different types of stochastic perturbations change stability properties of the solution of the deterministic counterpart. We also consider a highly nonlinear stochastic differential equation where stability of the equilibrium is induced by the noise term. It is often challenging to retain such stability in a numerical simulation. We solve this issue by designing an adaptive timestepping discretization scheme which faithfully reproduces stability properties of the solution of the original differential equation.
