After Office Hours

This event brings faculty and staff into the residence halls and allows students to ask any questions they may have!! This year we have academic advisors, campus activities staff, and faculty participating on our panel.   
THIS WILL COUNT AS A WIRED EVENT!

Our volunteers for the night are:

Kristen Atkins- A&S Academic Advisor
Christine Blank - Admin Director Wired
Micheal Pennell- Assoc prof of writing, digital studies ...
C. Lynn Hiler-Program Coordinator, Chellgren Center for Undergraduate Excellence
Lance Broeking - Director of Parking

You'll have to opportunity to ask any questions you want. Insomnia cookies will be provided! All residents who attend will be entered in a raffle to win $100 of UK swag!

Wired Coffee Chat - Learn About Student Organizations!!

It is important to get involved on campus!  Your peer mentors have planned this event for you so you can learn more about several campus organizations:  Student Activities Board, Underground Perspective (founded by Nigel Taylor, one of our Wired peer mentors), Center for Community Outreach, and PAWS (Service Dogs). 

We look forward to seeing you there!

Not in our Halls - Wall of Oppression

Champions Court I and II are collaborating on this event! 

The Wall of Oppression will be located outside the CC2 courtyard on October 1st from 11am-7pm. Students will be able to write their oppressions or oppressions they have heard about on the wall from 11am-4pm. At 4pm, the Resident Directors from CC1 and CC2 will hold a 30 minute educational chat about the wall and give out safety instructions. At 4:30pm, students can begin lining up at the wall to tear it down.  Students will be able to hit it 3 times and then get back in line if they’d like. Once students have participated, they will be able to pick up some food and fill out the feedback form.

In order to receive Wired credit, please fill out the feedback form and sign the Wired sign in sheet after you have participated in the educational chat and tearing down of the wall!!

Date: 
Thursday, October 1, 2015 - 11:00am to 7:00pm
Location: 
CC2 Courtyard

The Dubious Power of Power Laws

 

Everyone knows the classic normal distribution—the “bell curve,” where most observations cluster around the mean, and the frequency falls off toward either end, with well known statistical properties. Lots of things in nature are more-or-less normally distributed, but lots of things are not. In some cases distributions are “heavy-tailed,” such that for example there are many of the small ones, and increasingly fewer as size increases. Famous examples are the distribution of earthquake magnitudes, rank-size distributions of cities, and the distribution of wealth in societies.

Models of avalanche size distributions in (mathematically-simulated) sand piles were seminal in developing ideas about self-organized criticality and power laws, both in geomorphology and in general. Unfortunately even real sandpiles, much less more complex systems, are not necessarily well described by the models.

Discrete CATS Seminar

Algebra and Geometry Seminar

Title: A Circulant Approach to Skew-Constacyclic Codes

Abstract:  We introduce a type of skew-generalized circulant matrices that captures the structure of a skew-polynomial ring F[x;θ] modulo the left ideal generated by a polynomial of the form x^n-a. This allows us to develop an approach to skewconstacyclic codes based on skew-generalized circulants. We show that for the code-relevant case, the transpose of a skew-generalized circulant is also a skew-generalized circulant. This recovers the well-known result that the dual of a skew-constacyclic code is also a skew-constacyclic code. Please note that this will be a 20 minute talk in preparation for the upcoming AMS Sectional Meeting in Chicago.
