Graduate Student / Postdoc Seminar
Noisy Heteroclinic Networks and Sequential Decision Making
Speaker: Yuri Bakhtin
Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1302
Date: Friday, December 5, 2014, 1 p.m.
I will talk about small noisy perturbations of systems with multiple saddle-type equilibrium points. The goal is to give a precise description of the asymptotic behavior in the limit of vanishing noise and interpret the results in terms of sequential decision making. I will discuss applications to neural systems and psychology.
