*Motion Tracking and Its Applications*

Talk Math 2 Me is a seminar for students by students. Talk Math 2 Me
provides students, both graduate and undergraduate, an opportunity to present
anything related to mathematics to an audience of their peers. Undergraduate
and Graduate math students or any students interested in mathematics are highly
encouraged to attend. The talks are each 15‐60 minutes long and possible speaking topics include Undergraduate and
Graduate mathematics research, math history, and STEM research with a heavy footing
in mathematics. By presenting, students gain great experience communicating
mathematics while developing presentation skills in a relaxed environment. By
attending the seminar, students will be introduced to new mathematics and see
applications of mathematical concepts in different perspectives. Some weeks
will even include visits from professors to discuss how students can get
involved with research and the math department. With the support of Pi Mu
Epsilon and Math Club, Talk Math 2 Me meets every Friday at 12:00 noon in DERR
329. For further information or to sign up to speak, contact Ellen Robinson at ebr21@txstate.edu.

*Visualizing Regression Models*

This seminar focuses on topics related to teaching and learning of statistics at the undergraduate level. Innovative lessons and advances in statistics education research are presented, issues related to instruction of MATH 2328 and MATH 3305 are discussed, and collaboration among the statistics educators is encouraged. Graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to attend.

Rank Symmetry in Lower Bruhat Intervals of Finite Coxeter Groups

Rank Symmetry in Lower Bruhat Intervals of Finite Coxeter Groups

The seminar will provide a platform for faculty and students to present their research developments in discrete mathematics and related areas, foster research interactions among faculty and students, and create research opportunities and collaborations for faculty and students. Speakers from Discrete Mathematics, Combinatorics, Computer Science, and other related areas are all welcome.

*Smearing the wildness of crumpled cubes*

Graduate and undergraduate students interested in topology and its applications are welcome to attend. Primary topics are geometric topology (manifolds, cellular/simplicial/combinatorial complexes, knots, geometric group theory etc.), point-set topology, and algebraic topology. Other topics applying topology in an essential manner are also presented, drawn from such areas as functional analysis, large dataset analysis, dynamical systems, geometry, category theory, computation, physics (string and gauge theory), biology, chemistry, economics, finance, electrical engineering, and systems engineering.
