Jeff Calder (University of Minnesota, Twin Cities)

This talk will be an introduction to some recent research on PDE-inspired methods for graph-based learning, specifically for problems with very few labeled training examples. We'll discuss various models, including Laplace, p-Laplacian, re-weighted Laplacians, and Poisson learning, to highlight how connections between graph-PDEs and continuous PDEs can be used for analysis and development of new algorithms. The talk will be at an introductory level, suitable for graduate students.
