Graduate Student Chapter of AMS

Graduate Student Chapter of the American Mathematical Society Home

Welcome to the webpage of the Rutgers University Graduate Student Chapter of the American Mathematical Society.
Thanks for visiting!

The Chapter was founded in 2014 with over two dozen founding members. The Chapter is supported by the AMS under its Graduate Student Chapter program. The mission of the Chapter is the same as that of the AMS itself: "The particular business and objects of the Society are the furtherance of the interests of mathematical scholarship and research" (AMS Certificate of Incorporation, 3 May 1923).

The Chapter organizes speakers and events at Rutgers, sometimes in tandem with other student groups aligned with mathematical or scientific interests. The Chapter gives annual awards for outstanding work by graduate students and their mentors.

Events

Wednesday, May 8 at 12pm
You all nominated 12 of your fellow students for the research award, and on May 8, most of them will be given five minutes to present and one minute for questions. To enhance the playful atmosphere, we'll be giving out kazoos with which audience members can give warning toots to presenters who exceed their time.
Location: Hill 701

Title: Friendships to Hashtags: A look at a few applications from a Math lens
Abstract: In this talk, we will explore a few applications at Facebook and Instagram. We asked ourselves: How close am I to everyone else on Facebook? What does #baaw and #wymtm have in common? And what neighborhood in Austin is the most similar to Brooklyn? Each of these started as an interesting data science question, with the desire to get some cool insights from data. However, finding solutions to these questions involved a fair bit of technical rigor. These span a range of methods from statistical analysis, graph algorithms to hyperbolic embeddings.
