Title: From Riemann Integral to Lebesgue Integral

Abstract: In this talk, we discuss the origin and details of Riemann Integral and show a severe weakness in this concept; we motivate the need of a wider concept of integral leading to Lebesgue Integral. The Lebesgue concept will be introduced by modifying that one of Riemann, motivated by its weakness.

In fact, in this presentation we will discuss the following: One important property of any Integral concept must deal efficiently with the exchange of limit of sequence with the integral; in the Riemann integral if the sequence of Riemann integrable functions converges uniformly then we can exchange the limit with the integral. However, if the convergence is not uniform this exchange may fail. In analyzing this weakness closely, we are led to a wider concept of integrability.

Title: Brownian motion, diffusions, and SDEs

Abstract: Brownian motion may be the most important single object studied in probability theory (= the theory of stochastic processes), taught routinely in basic graduate courses in the area. Dropping the space homogeneity leads to more general diffusion processes, described most conveniently as solutions to stochastic differential equations (SDEs). In this talk, I will give an elementary account of some basic ideas, and comment briefly on the history of the subject.

Title: (Non-academic) Careers in Mathematics: More about having a mathematical mind than knowing mathematics

Speaker: **Allen Flick **

Flick is a former Auburn student who graduated in 2009 with an M.S. in Mathematics. Currently, he is a Senior Research Analyst at Metron, Inc. in Reston, VA, who designs and tests software and hardware for unmanned underwater vehicles. In the past he has also carried out performance analysis on different systems, designed software simulations, and designed software tools for testing / evaluating systems and their performance.

Title: Work for the Categorical Mathematician

Speaker: **James Dabbs**

Dabbs graduated in 2011 with an M.S. in Mathematics from Auburn. Currently, he is a senior engineer at Emcien, a late-stage Atlanta start-up working in Automated Pattern Detection. His job details include reading white papers, trying to implement these ideas using shiny new technologies, and playing a fair amount of bumper pool.
