MATH545 Introduction to Differential Geometry I Credits: 3
Content: An introduction to Riemannian geometry. The main goal is an understanding of the nature and uses of curvature, which is the local geometric invariant that measures the departure from Euclidean geometry. No previous experience in differential geometry is assumed, and we will rely heavily on pictures of surfaces in 3-space to illustrate key concepts.

MATH789 Topics in Analysis Credits: 3
Content: The use of quantitative methods in traditional and new fields of engineering and science urges the introduction of specific techniques for merging the back- ground knowledge of mathematical and physical models with the foreground knowledge of data, measures and images. This is a critical step for moving from ”simulation” to ”assimilation”, i.e. from a segregated quantitative use of different information to an integrated one. This is expected to reduce the impact of modeling error as well as measurement noise, and to quantify the reliability of the numerical results, in a process that is somehow ”dual” to supervised machine-learning, where models are used to guide the interpretation of data. Diverse methods are available for this aim, ranging from variational deterministic techniques - based on constrained minimization approaches - to stochastic methods, like Kalman filtering, and their combination. The course will cover the most popular techniques and some of their recent customizations. In the second part of the course, a showcase of different applications ranging from the geophysical and environmental fields to human sciences will be presented. The course will be completed by Lab sessions with Matlab and FreeFem++. Introduction to data assimilation, uncertainty quantification and inverse problems. Variational Deterministic Data Assimilation Methods. Lagrange multipliers and their use. Statistical Estimation, Sequential data assimilation, Kalman Filters, Bayesian techniques Advanced methods: model reduction, Proper Orthogonal Decomposition, Ensemble Kalman Filter, Hybrid Methods. Applications and case studies: environment, geophysics, medicine, human sciences
