The Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment and the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law will co-host a talk and discussion with Matthew Rimmer on “Intellectual Property and Global Warming: Fossil Fuels and Climate Justice.”

The United Nations Climate Summit in New York will provide a focal point for a number of outstanding issues on climate change — including intellectual property. Engaging in a close analysis of legal and political discourse, Dr. Rimmer will present on conflicts over intellectual property and climate change in three key arenas: climate law; trade law; and intellectual property law. First, Dr. Rimmer will discuss the debate over intellectual property and climate change under the auspices of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 1992, and the establishment of the UNFCCC Climate Technology Centre and Network. Second, he will examine the discussion of global issues in the World Intellectual Property Organization, WIPO GREEN. Third, Dr. Rimmer will discuss the dispute in the TRIPS Council at the World Trade Organization over intellectual property, climate change, and development. He will argue that intellectual property law reform should promote climate justice in line with Mary Robinson’s Declaration on Climate Justice 2013.
 
Dr. Matthew Rimmer is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow; an associate professor at the ANU College of Law; and an associate director of the Australian Centre for Intellectual Property in Agriculture (ACIPA). He is a member of the ANU Climate Change Institute. Amongst other things, he is the author of Intellectual Property and Climate Change: Inventing Clean Technologies. He was one of Managing IP’s 50 most influential intellectual property people in 2014.

Lunch and refreshments will be served.

Roundtable Discussion on the 2014 Brazilian Presidential Election

Location:Columbia University
Morningside Campus
International Affairs Building, Room 802
Contact:For further information regarding this event, please contact David Luna by sending email to dl2714@columbia.edu .

This year’s Brazilian presidential election has been a highly contested political battle with high stakes. Slowed economic growth, creeping inflation, corruption scandals across the political spectrum, the increasingly vocalized impatience of ordinary citizens with politics as usual, polarizing interpretations of the impacts of social programs, and other salient issues have created a very divisive political landscape. With the unexpected death of presidential candidate Eduardo Campos, this landscape became even more complex and unpredictable, with a rapidly evolving election scenario that has vital implications for Brazil and the region’s future. This roundtable convenes leading experts on Brazilian and Latin American politics and economics for a discussion of the stakes, potential outcomes, and implications of the elections for Brazil’s economic development and governance.

TITLE: Excluding Topological Minors and Well-Quasi-Ordering

ABSTRACT: Robertson and Seymour proved that graphs are well-quasi-ordered by the minor relation and the weak immersion relation. In other words, given infinitely many graphs, one graph contains another as a minor (or a weak immersion, respectively). Unlike the relation of minor and weak immersion, the topological minor relation does not well-quasi-order graphs in general. However, Robertson conjectured in the late 1980s that for every positive integer k, the topological minor relation well-quasi-orders graphs that do not contain a topological minor isomorphic to the path of length k with each edge duplicated. We will sketch the idea of our recent proof of this conjecture. In particular, we will give a structure theorem for excluding a fixed graph as a topological minor. Such structure theorems were previously obtained by Grohe and Marx and by Dvorak, but we push one of the bounds in their theorems to the optimal value. This improvement is needed for our proof of Robertson's conjecture. This work is joint with Robin Thomas.

Event Description:
Speaker: Sean Solomon, Director, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory

The Earth Institute and the School of Continuing Education MSSM Practicum present Sean Solomon, Director, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

The Earth Institute's overarching goal is to help achieve sustainable development primarily by exploring and expanding the knowledge surrounding environmental issues. Through education, scientific research and practical application, the Earth Institute tackles real-world challenges. The Earth Institute is comprised of 30 research centers and programs. With 850 scientists, postdoctoral fellows and students, the Earth Institute is helping to advance understanding of nine interconnected global issues: climate and society, water, energy, poverty, ecosystems, public health, food and nutrition, hazards and urbanization. The Earth Institute at Columbia is the world's leading academic center for the integrated study of Earth, its environment, and society.

The Earth Institute builds upon excellence in the core disciplines - earth sciences, biological sciences, engineering sciences, social sciences, and health sciences - and stresses cross-disciplinary approaches to complex problems. Through its research, training, and global partnerships, it mobilizes science and technology to advance sustainable development, while placing special emphasis on the needs of the world's poor. The Earth Institute is motivated by the belief that science and technological tools already exist, and could be expanded, to greatly improve conditions for the world's poor while preserving the natural systems that support life on Earth.

The Earth Institute Practicum is designed to be a broad survey of the applications of frontier research to the practice of sustainable development and environmental policy.  The Practicum is a dynamic forum featuring a different lecture each week by the directors or lead researchers representing various units from across the Earth Institute, presenting the applications of their research and discussing the policy implications.

The Distinguished Colloquium Series in Interdisciplinary and Applied Mathematics presents

Andrea Bertozzi
Professor of Mathematics, Betsy Wood Knapp Chair for Innovation and Creativity, and Director of Applied Mathematics
University of California Los Angeles

"Math of Crime"

There is an extensive applied mathematics literature developed for problems in the biological and physical sciences. Our understanding of social science problems from a mathematical standpoint is less developed, but also presents some very interesting problems, especially for young researchers. This lecture uses crime as a case study for using applied mathematical techniques in a social science application and covers a variety of mathematical methods that are applicable to such problems. We will review recent work on agent based models, methods in linear and nonlinear partial differential equations, variational methods for inverse problems and statistical point process models. From an application standpoint we will look at problems in residential burglaries and gang crimes. Examples will consider both "bottom up'' and "top down'' approaches to understanding the mathematics of crime, and how the two approaches could converge to a unifying theory.

Andrea Bertozzi is an applied mathematician whose work has impacted many fields: the theory and applications of nonlinear partial differential equations, fluid dynamics, geometric methods for image processing, crime modeling and analysis, and swarming/cooperative dynamics. Among her many honors are: SIAM's Kovalevsky Prize (2009), election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2010),  and  Fellow of both Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics and  the American Mathematical Society (2010). Professor Bertozzi currently serves as Chair of the Science Board of the NSF Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics at Brown University and serves on the Science Boards for the Banff International Research Station and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute at Berkeley.


Host: Michael Weinstein



The seminar will take place at 5:00 PM in Costa Engineering, 750 CEPSR.
