Identifying a region by how its boundary vibrates: analytical and geometrical aspects |
Abstract:
A problem formulated by I.M. Gelfand in the 1950s is to
reconstruct the metric tensor of a compact Riemannian
manifold with boundary, from data
on the spectrum of its Laplace operator, with the Neumann
boundary condition, and the behavior at the boundary of the
normalized eigenfunctions. |
Here are some directions to Northeastern University. Lake Hall and Nightingale Hall can be best accessed from the entrance on the corner of Greenleaf Street and Leon Street. The two halls are connected, with no well-defined boundary in between. In particular, 509 Lake Hall is on the same corridor as 544 Nightingale Hall. There is free parking available for people coming to the Colloquium at Northeastern's visitor parking (Rennaisance Garage). The entrance is from Columbus Avenue. If coming by car, you should park there and take the parking talon. After the lecture, you may pick up the payment coupon from Maxim Braverman. |
