Dr. Steven Orszag's Lectures

A Mathematician's Experience with a High-Tech Startup: From Idea to Product - PUBLIC LECTURE
Tuesday, February 15, 4:00pm, in Beth Moor Lounge - Longmire Building (refreshments to be served at 3:30 pm).

Parking will be available beginning at 3:00 p.m. on February 15, at the "New Music" lot on the corner or Ivy and Call Street and the Longmire lot.

Abstract: In this talk, I will talk about my experiences with a high-tech startup in the field of manufacturing of electronic chips. A layman's description will be given of the manufacturing of both today's and future electronic chips and of the new ideas being developed by the startup. I will give an overview of this field and its opportunities, applications, and challenges. I will also try to explain how mathematics was essential to seed the idea.
Lattice Methods for Turbulent Flows
Thursday, February 17, 4:00pm, in Room B210 - FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, 2525 Pottsdamer Street.

Abstract: In this talk, an introduction to "Lattice BGK" methods will be given and their extension to describe complex turbulent flows at high Reynolds numbers will be described. A variety of applications will be given, especially for external and internal aerodynamic flows involving today's and tomorrow's automobiles.
'Perfect' Scalability of Data I/O
Friday, February 18, 3:30pm, in Math Colloquium, 101 Love Building.

Abstract: One of the core challenges of modern computing has been the design of computer storage software that enables data storage systems to scale in size and performance while enabling simple and transparent manageability. Here I will describe a way to do this and present a simple, yet highly sophisticated, 'toy' mathematics problem that can be analyzed in full detail to prove that the new architecture works. The practical implementation of these ideas will also be described.
