Thursday, February 6

BRITTNAY MERCADO (Baruch College)
Delta Forum Seminar Series/Works in Progress

Presented by the Department of Management; Even though prior research has explored the relationship between personality characteristics and work-family conflict, much of this work has sampled primarily employees who are married or have children. The present research focuses on young adults of the Millennial generation, and examines the relationship between Big Five personality dimensions and overall work-family conflict, work-family interference, and family-work interference for this underexamined population. Results support our hypotheses that conscientiousness, agreeableness, and emotional stability would negatively predict work-family conflict and its subdimensions. Our study provides insights regarding components of the work-family (or work-nonwork) interface unique to young employed adults.  12:30 p.m., NVC 9-215.

JOHN ZHANG (University of Connecticut)
Participation in Open Knowledge Communities and Job-Hopping: Evidence from Enterprise Software

Department of Statistics and Computer Information Systems Seminars

1:00 p.m., NVC 11-217

Using longitudinal data of IT professionals' activities in the SAP Community Network, and the career histories of these professionals, obtained from LinkedIn, we investigate the relationship between participation in Internet-enabled open knowledge communities and a major career event: job-hopping. We measure individual participation in open knowledge communities by three types of related activities: contribution, learning, and the accruement of social capital during the interaction with other community members. We find that while contributing behavior leads to a higher likelihood of job-hopping, greater amount of learning is associated with a higher probability of staying with the current employer. In addition, we find that the social capital one builds through the interaction with others in the knowledge community moderates these relationships. Our work contributes to the existing literature on networks of practice by demonstrating that participation in these networks indeed lead to realization of career benefits, highlighting the importance of extrinsic motives in encouraging participation. In addition, our study takes the first step to bridge the gap in the current literature on employee turnover that has so far ignored the impacts of employee participation in external knowledge communities, thus providing both theoretical and practical implications in the area of organizational research.

PETER L. GREGORY (Baruch College)
Lassoing the Moon: A Friendly Overview of Some Results in Unstable Homotopy Theory

Department of Mathematics Faculty Seminar

1:00 p.m., NVC 6-215 (Tea to be served at 12:45 p.m.)
This talk will reintroduce some familiar concepts of algebraic topology, such as homotopy groups, and then quickly extend and specialize these ideas to the branch of algebraic topology know as unstable homotopy theory.  The goal of homotopy theory, and still one of the most important tasks in algebraic topology, is to compute the homotopy groups of spheres.  The technology needed for these computations, the (unstable) Adams spectral sequence, will be introduced as will the notions of K-localization.  A typical calculation for spheres will be performed, and results for spheres and the spherically resolved space SU(n) will be presented.
For further information on this event please contact Prof. Aaron Todd.

Reconstructing Noisy Data: of Bayes, Markov, Metropolis, Gibbs, and Geman-Geman

Department of Mathematics Faculty Seminar

1:00 p.m., NVC 6-215 (Tea to be served at 12:45 p.m.)
In this talk we will apply Bayesian inference and the Metropolis algorithm to the problem of reconstructing data that has been degraded in some random fashion.  The Metropolis algorithm is a very general algorithm for finding approximate solutions to difficult combinatorial optimization problems.  It has been applied in many settings, including statistical mechanics (where it has roots), genetics, and finance. It has even been used to design an esthetically appealing random pattern on a kitchen floor.

T
his presentation centers on the two topics—(i) interface design for mobile applications and (ii) outcomes of perpetual use of social networking sites. We'll question whether the use of these two systems that have reshaped the way we live indeed enhances interests, needs, and well-being of users. The findings of the two studies demonstrate mobile applications designed for utilitarian purposes adversely affect the quality of decisions, while social networking sites developed for hedonic goals indirectly improve vocational self-concept.  For more information on the speaker click here.

Angelicity and Compactness in Spaces C(X)

New York Seminar on General Topology and Topological Algebra

10:30 a.m., NVC 6-215 (Tea to be served at 9:45 a.m.)
Abstract:The aim of the talk is to summarize several (older and very recent) re-
sults, concepts and ideas concerning the behaviour of compact sets in many of the locally
convex spaces, including spaces Cp(X) and C c(X) of continuous real-valued functions on
a completely regular Hausdorff space X endowed with the pointwise and compact-open
topology, respectively. In the theory of locally convex spaces E, working with compact sets
K in E, two essential questions may arise, namely, about (i) metrizability of sets K, and
(ii) (weakly) angelicity of spaces E. Positive answers concerning part (i) (apart famous
Smulians theorem) are covered by results of Pfister (about (DF)-spaces), Valdivia (about
dual metric spaces), Cascales and Orihuela (about (LF)-spaces) and a general result due
to Cascales- Orihuela referring to the class G(which contains, among others, all (DF) and
(LM)-spaces). A simple approach with re-proving the above mentioned cases (results)
was noticed by Kakol and Saxon who do not require the machinery of (quasi- and semi-)
Suslin spaces, upper semicontinuous compactvalued maps, generalized inductive limits, etc.
We characterize analytic sets in class Cp(X) which leads to generalizations of the former
results mentioned above. Several results extend earlier works of Talagrand, Preiss, Amir-
Lindenstrauss, Corson, etc. Question (ii) refers to a very useful concept of angelic spaces
(introduced by Fremlin) for which several variants of compactness coincide. We present
a number of results, including a remarkable and applicable Orihuela theorem for spaces
Cp(X) over web-compact spaces X, providing angelicity. Methods of descriptive topology
will be used. Applications of this concept both in topology and functional analysis are
provided.

Temporal Partial Metric Spaces

New York Seminar on General Topology and Topological Algebra

4:00 p.m., NVC 6-215 (Tea to be served at 3:00 p.m.)
Abstract: Partial metric spaces generalise metric spaces by allowing self-distance to be a positive number. Originally motivated by the goal to reconcile metric space topology with the logic of computable functions and Dana Scott's innovative theory of topological domains, they are now too static a form of mathematics to be of use in modelling contemporary application software (aka apps), which is increasingly pragmatic, interactive, and inconsistent, in nature. This paper addresses the reality that if partial metric spaces are to survive in future research, then they must firstly progress by means of a computable temporal generalisation. How can this be achieved?

Regularity in convergence-approach spaces

New York Seminar on General Topology and Topological Algebra

4:00 p.m., NVC 6-215 (Tea to be served at 3:15 p.m.)
Abstract: After discussing generalizations of topological spaces in the direction of convergence spaces and in the direction of approach spaces, we will focus on the common generalization: convergence approach spaces.   In this context, we study two variants of regularity and characterize them in two ways: in terms of a property of contractive extensions of contractive partial maps into the space, and in terms of contractivity of ”near limits” in the canonical function space structure.

  INTERNATIONAL WRITERS ON THE GREAT WORKS THAT SHAPED THEM

Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, Great Works and Sidney Harman Writer-in-Residence Programs
In "Why Read the Classics?" Italo Calvino writes, "The classics...exert a peculiar influence, both when they refuse to be eradicated from the mind and when they conceal themselves in the folds of memory, camouflaging themselves as the collective or individual unconscious." How does this "peculiar influence" resonate for writers around the world?

Basic Families of Functions and Embeddings of Free Locally Convex spaces

New York Seminar on General Topology and Topological Algebra

4:00 p.m., NVC 6-215 (Tea to be served at 3:15 p.m.)
Let X be a completely regular topological space.  The free locally convex space on X is a locally convex space L(X) for which X forms a Hamel basis and such that every continuous mapping from X to a locally convex space X extends uniquely to a continuous linear operator from L(X) to E.   In our talk we survey the results which are related to the following problem: characterize all topological spaces X such that L(X) can be embedded into L[0,1] as a closed linar subspace, where [0,1] is the usual unit segment.

Impact of Fiscal Decentralization on Social Outcomes: A Case Study.

Seminar in Applied Economics
11:45 a.m– 1:45 p.m., The Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue,
Room 5-383
Do village governments use own-source revenues more efficiently than transfer grants to provide public services to their constituents?
This paper rests on the premise that local governments are more participative, more acceptable, and more accountable and hence, deliver better. I use a policy change of 1997 in the Central Indian province, Madhya Pradesh, whereby the power to collect royalty and lease rents on minor mineral mines and fishing ponds was transferred to village governments as a natural experiment and compare social outcomes in villages that were endowed with such natural resources and compare them to those totally dependent on transfer grants from the state and central government for their development needs.
This study uses village level data and finds evidence to support the hypothesis that fiscal decentralization through assignment of taxation powers is more effective in achieving desired outcomes as compared to transfer of grants.

MATTHEW WISWALL
(New York University)
The Dynamics of Teacher Quality

Seminar in Applied Economics
11:45 a.m– 1:45 p.m., The Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue,
Room 5-383
An extensive literature finds that, while teachers vary considerably in initial quality, there are limited teacher quality dynamics: except for the first few years of teaching, teacher quality does not improve over the course of a teacher’s career. This study evaluates the importance of various modeling restrictions to the key findings of this literature. Using data covering all 5th grade public school teachers from the state of North Carolina, Prof. Wiswall replicates the findings of the previous literature using their restrictive experience assumptions. However, using an unrestricted experience model he finds that for mathematics achievement there are high returns to later career teaching experience, about twice as much dispersion in initial teacher quality as previously estimated, and a pattern of negative selection where high quality teachers are more likely to exit.
For more information, please write to Prof. Ryan Edwards.

Countability And Star Covering Properties
New York Seminar on General Topology and Topological Algebra
3:15 p.m. (tea); 4:00 p.m. (talk), NVC 6-215
Abstract:
Whenever P is a topological property, we say that a topological space, X, is "star P" if whenever U is an open cover of X, there is a subspace A of X with property P such that X=St(A,U) (where St(A,U) is the union of those T in U that meet A). We will discuss the relationships of star P properties for P=Lindelof, sigma-compact, or countable with other Lindelof type properties.

Compactifications of Spaces
New York Seminar on General Topology and Topological Algebra
3:15 p.m. (tea); 4:00-5:00 p.m. (talk), NVC 6-215
Abstract: The two extremes, one-point and Stone-Cech, compactifications of suitable topological spaces are well known. In this talk we discuss compactifications with small remainders, those that are finite and countably infinite. These questions were settled by Magill in two papers published by him in mid 1960s. About the same time he also proved an important theorem for locally compact spaces: their remainders are characterized as continuous images of Stone-Cech remainders of such spaces. Faulkner and Vipera in 1995 have proved some generalizations of this theorem for non locally compact spaces. We will make an attempt to describe their results as well in this talk.
Dinner for speaker after talk.

BRIAN HOUSEHOLDER (Baruch College)
Television Viewing and the Ability to Detech Deception
Communication Studies Department Colloquium
12:00-1:00 p.m., NVC 8-210
Ever wanted to catch someone in a lie?

Professor Brian Householder will discuss his recently published study with colleague Dr. Norman Wong about how particular television programs may enhance your ability to detect deception.This study highlights the importance of mood context in deception detection and on message processing. Moreover, it has substantive implications for advertising because of the role television viewing plays on messages processing. Results from a study of 208 participants indicated that mock interviewers who watched happy television programs were significantly less likely to detect deception compared to those in the sad television viewing type.

Results showed no differences in the ability to detect deception based on the relationship—or relational closeness. In some cases, married couples in the happy television condition told their long-term partner lies that went unnoticed in a mock interview situation. Yet, complete strangers in the sad television-viewing group did much better at extracting the lies. Any questions or ideas can be e-mailed to Prof. Caryn Medved.

What is Black Studies? A neglected discipline in a forgotten corner of academia or the pivotal discourse in an ever more diverse and multicultural American now captained by a more dynamic young Black president? What is Black Studies? The key to reconciling the United States with its shameful history or an anachronism in a great nation that has at last come to grips with its past and forged what is truly a post-racial society? Dr. Greg Carr, Chair of African American Studies at Howard University. will tackle these questions. To find out more about Dr. Carr, watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpjWd25NjDI&feature=related.

Normality of Uniform Box Products
New York Seminar on General Topology and Topological Algebra
3:15 (tea); 4:00 p.m. (talk), NVC 6-215 (Mathematics Conference Room)
An important unsolved problem in topology is the box product problem, which asks whether the product of compact spaces with the box topology is normal. Applying uniformities, we introduce a new topology on products which site between the box and Tychonov products called the uniform box product. This new product is an extension of the sup metric to products of compact spaces. We will show, in ZFC, that the uniform box product of a certain compact space is normal.

The Captive Audience: Cinema, Prisons, and Spectatorship
Department of Communications Brown Bag Discussions
1:00-2:30pm, NVC 8-210
Professor Alison Griffiths will show images and talk about her new book project entitled "Screens Behind Bars:  Cinema, Prisons, and the Making of Modern America."  The book explores how cinema and prisons first came into contact in the early  twentieth century, examining the exhibition of Hollywood films in prisons  before 1935, the representation of prisons and punishment in American film at the time, and the lessons to be learned for the histories of film spectatorship, prisons reform, and constructions of the nation.  One of the goals of this book is to delineate the stark yet subtle differences between consuming commercial cinema in prisons such as Sing Sing and going to the movies in civilian life.  It is this tension between the familiarity of the experience (watching films) and the strangeness of the context (prison chapel) that "Screens Behind Bars" seeks to uncover and explain.

RUBEN GALLO
(Princeton University)
Freud's Mexico: Into the Wilds of Psychoanalysis
The Paul André Feit Memorial Lectures Series
6:00 p.m., NVC 8-210
Join the Dept. of Mod. Languages and Comparative Literatures for a lecture sponsored by the Paul A. Feit Memorial Fund. Prof. Gallo will discuss his recent book Freud’s Mexico (MIT Press). Freud's Mexico is a completely unexpected contribution to Freud studies. Gallo reveals Freud’s previously undisclosed connections to a culture and a psychoanalytic tradition not often associated with him. Freud found a receptive audience among Mexican intellectuals, read Mexican books, collected Mexican antiquities, and dreamed Mexican dreams; his writings bear the traces of a longstanding fascination with the country. In the Mexico of the 1920s and 1930s, Freud made an impact not only among psychiatrists but also in literary, artistic, and political circles. Gallo discovers a "motley crew" of Freud’s readers who devised some of the most original, elaborate, and influential applications of psychoanalytic theory anywhere in the world: the poet Salvador Novo, a gay dandy who used Freud to vindicate marginal sexual identities; the conservative philosopher Samuel Ramos, who diagnosed the collective neuroses afflicting his country; the cosmopolitan poet Octavio Paz, who launched a psychoanalytic inquiry into the origins of Mexican history; and Gregorio Lemercier, a Benedictine monk who put his entire monastery into psychoanalysis.

SUJIN LEE (KAIST - Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology)
Viewing Time Through the Lens of the Self
Department of Management Research Seminars
12:00-1:30 p.m., Management Department Conference Room
We are pleased to have Sujin Lee from KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) presenting some of her work. Abstract: This paper describes how different self-construals influence people’s perception of temporal distance and in turn their task evaluation and performance. We hypothesize that people with a more accessible interdependent (vs. independent) self-construal perceive future events as temporally more proximal, and that people’s reaction toward a task is intensified when the temporal distance to the task matches (vs. mismatches) their self-construal. Across five studies, we showed that individuals with a more accessible interdependent self-construal (Study 1) and East Asians (Study 2) perceived future events as more proximal than those with a more accessible independent self-construal and European Americans. Further, when considering a task at a temporal distance that fits their self-construal, individuals perceived a pleasant task as more motivating (Study 3) and an unpleasant task as less motivating (Study 4). Finally, we showed that the temporal fit effect carries over to actual behavior in a negotiation context with financial consequences, and that the effect is mediated by participants’ feeling right experience (Study 5).
We hope you can join us! Please e-mail: Mary.Kern@baruch.cuny.edu for more information.

(Wesleyan University)

New York Seminar on General Topology and Topological Algebra
Department of Mathematics Seminar Meeting
3:15 (tea); 4:00 p.m. (talk), NVC 6-215 (Mathematics Conference Room)

Prof. Comfort will discuss selected portions of the mathematical legacy of Mel Henriksen, emphasizing groundbreaking work from the period 1957--61. He expects to touch (at least) on some of these, [with Erdos and Gillman] The existence of, and some properties of, non-Archimedean ordered fields of the form $C(X)/M$. [with Isbell] The development of {\it perfect} functions: For many properties ${\cal P}$, the preimage under a perfect function of a space with ${\cal P}$ again has ${\cal P}$. Many applications and consequences arise. [with Isbell and Johnson] For many properties ${\cal P}$ and ${\cal Q}$, every Baire set in a space with ${\cal P}$ has ${\cal Q}$. Following Halmos {\it et al.}: For many $X$, every closed Baire set of $X$ is a zeroset. [with a committee, appointed, convened, coordinated and chaired by Mel] When is $|C(X\times Y)|=|C(X)|\cdot|C(Y)|$? For some $X$, does this always happen? For some $Y$, does it never happen? Note: Some amusing unsolved problems remain in this area.

Stone Duality, Smirnov's Theorem, and Compact Hausdorff Spaces
Department of Mathematics Seminar Meetings

The meeting of the NEW YORK SEMINAR ON GENERAL TOPOLOGY AND TOPOLOGICAL ALGEBRA will be held at Baruch College (Lexington Ave. & 24th Street).
Abstract: We will discuss how Stone duality between Boolean algebras and Stone spaces and Smirnov's characterization of compactifications of a completely regular space by means of proximities give rise to a rather elegant duality for the category of compact Hausdorff spaces. This results in a rather simple description of the Gleason cover of a compact Hausdorff space (which is algebraic in nature). Some other features of the de Vries duality will also be discussed.
For further information please contact Prof. Aaron Todd.

NATALIA MOSINA (Columbia University)
Strong Law of Large Numbers on Graphs and Groups With
Applications

Department of Mathematics
1:45-2:15 pm, NVC 6-215
In this talk, we introduce the notion of the mean-set (expectation) of a graph- or group-valued random element. With this notion at hand, a novel generalization of the strong law of large numbers on graphs and groups is presented (formulation, intuition, and the key ideas of the proof are given). Some other relevant results about configurations of mean sets in trees, which help to illuminate other areas of mathematics in unexpected way, are indicated. Results of actual experiments with free groups supporting the law are shown. Further applications and developments are discussed.
The presenter is on campus for interviews in addition to the presentation.
