Sino-US Colloquium VIII   8:30 AM - 5:30 PM
This forum will provide a vauable opportunity for scholars, public intellectuals, spiritual and religious leaders, as well as relevant NGOs from both China and the United States to further discuss and explore ways to build a new type of major-country relationship between the two countries through discussions on their respective core values. The ultimate goal of this forum is to promote amity while respecting differences, thereby inspiring a new type of pluralism that fosters peace and harmony.
In observance of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, the George Washington Division of Information Technology will host a series of events this October to educate the GW community on the importance of cyber security. In this session, learn how to keep your computer and data secure at GW and beyond. Presenter: Brian Markham, Director of Compliance and Risk Services, GW Division of IT RSVP:
"Talk About It" is the mandatory session for all entering undergraduates covering sexual assault prevention and response. Intended to follow your completion of "Think About It," the online module, this in-person session will allow a deeper dive into a few essential topics. The session is 60 minutes long and will be facilitated by GW staff with help from student leaders.
Lecturer: Abe Chian, Senior Scientist at National Institute for Space Research (INPE), Adjunct Professor at Institute for Aeronautical Technology (ITA) in Brazil, Adjunct Professor at University of Adelaide in Australia Location: Science & Engineering Hall, Room 2000B Abstract: The concept of complexity and tools of nonlinear dynamics are useful for investigating biomedical engineering. For example, the knowledge of nonlinear dynamics of cardiac arrhythmias can help to develop more effective therapeutic approaches to heart diseases such as atrial fibrillation (Qu & Weiss, Ann. Rev. Physiol. 2015); the identification of Lagrangian coherent structures in blood flows based on imaging and modeling can reveal the inherently transient conditions of hemodynamics, and help to understand properly the biomechanical factors that lead to acute and gradual changes of vascular function (Shadden & Arzani, Ann. Biomed. Eng. 2015). In this talk, we discuss some recent studies of complex dynamics in physical systems and their applications to biomedical engineering. First, we show that the amplitude-phase synchronization due to multiscale interactions is the origin of on-off intermittency observed in biomedical and physical systems (He & Chian, Phys. Rev. Lett. 2003; Chian et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 2010). Next, we show that transient structures known as chaotic saddles play a key role in the genesis of turbulence and onset of spatiotemporal chaos, e.g., the termination of cardiac arrhythmias (Rempel & Chian, Phys. Rev. Lett. 2007; Chian et al., Phys. Rev. E 2014). Finally, we show that Lagrangian coherent structures provide a novel method to detect the transport barriers in cardiovascular and astrophysical flows (Rempel, Chian & Brandenburg, Astrophys. J. Lett. 2011; Chian et al. Astrophys. J. 2014).
