Investigator(s): | Ching WK, Li WK |
Department: | Mathematics |
Source(s) of Funding: | Small Project Funding |
Start Date: | 02/2006 |
Abstract: |
In this project, we will develop a new hidden Markov model (HMM) for modeling categorical time series. In a traditional HMM, the observable states are affected directly by the hidden states but not vice versa. Here, we will develop a HMM such that the transitions of hidden states depend also on the observable states. Our model can be related to a discrete-state version of the class of the first-order self-exciting threshold autoregressive models for modelling non-linear time series taking numerical values. Efficient estimation methods for the transition probabilities among the hidden states and observable states will also be developed. We will apply the model to practical sales demands data sequences in inventory control. |

Abstract: |
The objective of our proposed investigation is to pose the intriguing question of what "shape" a given market is in at a particular moment of development, and to produce models with tools for the answer. The key issues of our work include: (1) To construct a topological model based only on operational data, without any expert knowledge of the specific auction market, or conomic details from the transactions. (2) To identify the dimensions for a topology, using extensive analysis of eBay data to extract the information desired. (3) To propose a graphical model to visualize this topology, also for the purpose of comparing markets at different points of a life cycle. (4) To integrate optimization modelling into this topological analysis to further achieve its maximum resolution of any such buyers/sellers market dichotomy.

Abstract: |
To advance Poisson geometry, we try to achieve this goal by relating Poisson geometry with Lie theory. More precisely, we will study a class of examples of Poisson structures that are connected to interesting problems in Lie theory. The Poisson geometric considerations of these examples will shed lights on the Lie theoretical problems associated to them, and the input from Lie theory will motivate new constructions in Poisson geometry. |

Abstract: |
The objective of this project is to understand the intersections of some very important submanifolds of a complex flag variety, namely that of a Schubert cell and an orbit of a real form of the complex group. This project will bring new tools to the study of real group orbits such as the theory of cluster algebras recently formulated by Fomin and Zelevnsky. The proposed examples will also shed new lights on the work of Gekhtman, Shapiro, and Vainshtein on the relation between cluster algebras and Poisson geometry. |

Abstract: |
For a given projective smooth curve Y, let U(Y, r, d) be the moduli space of semistable bundles of rank r and degree d on Y (r and d are coprime). One of the open problems about the topology of moduli spaces of bundles on curves is to compute Chern-classes of U(Y, r, d) using degeneration method: (1) Degenerate the curve Y into an irreducible curve X with only one node, and construct a degeneration of U(Y, r, d), which is a moduli space G(X) of stable bundles on some semistable curves. (2) Find the relationship between G(X) and U(C, 2, d), where C is the normalization of X and g(C)=g(Y-1), so that one can reduce the problem of genus g(Y)=g to a problem of genus g1. (1) is established, but (2) remains open. Instead of studying the relationship between G(X) and U(C, r, d) in the category of algebraic varieties, we propose to study the relationship in the category of topological spaces. |

Abstract: |
(a) Project Objectives: Image restoration problems are often solved by finding the minimizer of a suitable objective function. Usually this function consists of a data-fitting term and a regularization term. For the least squares solution, both the data-fitting and the regularization terms are in the l2 norm. In this proposal, we consider the least absolute deviation (LAD) solution and the least mixed norm (LMN) solution. For the LAD solution, both the data-fitting and the regularization terms are in the l1 norm. For the LMN solution, the regularization term is in the l1 norm but the data-fitting term is in the l2 norm. The quality of the restored images using the minimization of mixed l1-l1 and l2-l1 norms is better than that using only l2 norm approach. The LAD and LMN solutions are reformulated as the solutions to a linear programming problem and a quadratic programming problem respectively which are solved by interior point methods. At each iteration of the interior point method, a large structured linear system must be solved. Such linear systems become ill-conditioned as the iterates get close to the solution. Thus preconditioners are required to accelerate the convergence of the conjugate gradient iterations. The main aim of this proposal is to develop effective preconditioners for these structured linear systems. Our idea is to use the Hermitian and skew-Hermitian preconditioner and the shift-variant preconditioner for these systems. Their convergence rates will be analyzed in detail, and their performance will also be compared. On the application side, we will study our efficient minimization methods of mixed l1-l1 and l2-l1 norms for super-resolution image reconstruction. (b) Long-term Significance: Applications of our methods for solving image restoration and reconstruction problems are important. We therefore expect our methods to be profitable across a broad spectrum of mathematics, engineering and medicine. The convergence analysis of our methods will have to make use results from optimization, numerical analysis and image processing. A better understanding of the relationship between mathematical analysis and these computational problems will be beneficial to both fields. |

Does there exist a wild automorphisms of P_{n} 2/ Let P_{n} be a polynomial algebra over a field K. Does there exist a wild coordinate p=P_{n}? If so, how to effectively characterize whether a coordinate in P_{n} is wide? 3/ For two polynomials p and q in P_{n}, how to effectively decide whether there exists a tame automorphism ψ of P_{n} such that ψ(p)=q? |

Abstract: |
This proposal is devoted to the following problem. What is the lowest possible degree for the nontrivial elements of β? Here degree is the ordinary (total) homo-geneous degree. In the proposal it will be shown the idea to get an estimate of this degree, and how this estimate can be used to attack long-standing open problem of structure of automorphism group of the free associative algebra of rank three over the field κ. |

The main objectives of this project are: (1) To investigate the Jackson-Wormald conjecture which asserts that every 3-connected graph on n vertices with maximum degree d>3 contains a cycle of length at least n^{log_{d-1} 2}, and the following conjecture made by Chen, Yu and myself: there exists a function f(t)>0 such that every 4-connected graph on n vertices with no K(3,t)-minors, where t>2, contains a cycle of length at least f(t)n; (2) To characterize all graphs G such that for any nonnegative integral weight function defined on the vertex set, the maximum size of a feedback vertex set (FVS) packing of G is equal to the minimum weight of a cycle in G; (3) To describe all digraphs G in terms of forbidden structures such that the clutter of all mininal dicycles of G (with respect to vertices) is ideal; (4) To design an efficient algorithm for finding a maximum cycle packing in any weighted reducible flow graph. |
